High-rise strawberries

Last night we were standing by the pond, wondering if tomorrow more dragonflies would emerge. "Look - strawberries!" "Where?". I looked in the tangle of geraniums and sedges vaguely remembering a seedling strawberry plant that I'd seen while clearing the border early in the year. "Not there, higher" - I looked across at the variegated holly and the young walnut tree, confused. "No, much higher". And there it was - an alpine strawberry growing on the top of the high red brick wall, little bright red, heart shaped fruit dangling on wiry stems. Accidental perfection!
