Summer Strawberries and Zinnias

Do you ever associate a particular item with cheerful memories? For me, summer strawberries always stir memories of summer fun. I think of my childhood, family gatherings and reunions at a state park, and eating strawberry shortcake, sometimes two times in a day! One grandmother had a quite the yin for the soft, spongy, sweetness of angel food cake, and if strawberries were in season... well, it just seemed natural to have dessert as an afternoon snack and then maybe also again after dinner.
What do you think of when the strawberries are in season?
