One of the first things I think about California is the first strawberries that show up in the grocery stores during springtime. These berries are bigger than Washington’s strawberries. The man carrying the giant berry in the wheelbarrow shows the pride of the farmer. I used beads for the berries. Fun project. Michele Wise
