Strawberry Shortcake - The Seasons of Mothers and Daughters
Strawberry Shortcake - The Seasons of Mothers and Daughters. Botanically, strawberry plants are referred to as mother plants which produce runners containing a growth node which gives rise to more fruit-producing daughter plants. Here we see a plate of strawberry shortcake on a field of strawberry plants shown in all seasons of the plant's life. This came about because my daughter Clare had a baby this year and suddenly I saw our lives together in the sense of seasons, of the passage of time and of something wonderful made from ordinary materials.
