wishing one and all a BERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
the last time i was in Baguio City, it trained cats and dogs so to speak. nothing extra could be done except curl up with two thick blankets in the hotel room, but then also managed to go buy some fresh strawberries at the public market. perhaps it is only in Baguio that strawberries can be seen year-round. they aren't as big as their western counterparts but rest assured, they are organic!
Maligayang Pasko sa lahat!

I like your berry red Christmas present. My eyes feasted on it!
I have not been to Baguio for 15 years! I will be in the Philippines on the third week of January, I will see if I could visit the place where I learned how to ride a bike. That was summer of 1949!

I remember well that in my early times of TE I was delighted by the fruit desserts you presented us. This is a much familiar fruit to me than many of those, but equally photogenic. You got a very attractive image with this delicious pattern of red and green.
I hope you had a Berry Christmas and I wish you have also a very Berry New Year.

LOL you won the award of the Xmas title that made me laugh !!!
An image with alternating vivid reds and greens, and that makes me hungry...
Merry Xmas and happy new year to you as well JY

Hello Benedict! I never had a berry xmas so far but I need a fruit plate to overcome all the calories that I have eaten over the last 72 hours. All so bad and all so good at the same time. What a funny title :))) Have a berry time you too, eat a lot of fruit, seems healthy, but sometimes it is nice to overdo things. Happy days, Barbara.

This is very creative and intelligent one especially with its header and just as real strawberries. I'm sure (I know) this type is natural and more delicious then giant size of other varieties. Congratulations twice.
I hope you and your family had a very nice Christmas holiday and with my best new year wishes.

Very nice colorful strawberry shown in the natural cluster and the red/green is really very good choice for your Xmas theme.
Wishing you Happy 2009.

U got a very creative idea.Those red & green colors for a X-Mas greeting are super. The lighting is just right & it make U crave for a strawberry.

Nice and delicious Bro...Very Crisp and sharp parang gusto kong kumuha ng isa at sumubo. Overall Bro maski pang all year-round pang Christmas naman ang kulay.
Wishing you the joys of the season...

Very nice colors and details. Generally, I have never thought to associate Christmas with strawberries...but I like the idea. Funny and original.

Hello Benedict -
Sometimes when it rains we have to find a diversion and a market is a good place. I like this image for the details. Everything is sharp and in focus. The exposure is spot on. Yummy is all I can say!
Thank you for sharing
