Strawberry Fields

Finally, I'm on our second and last day at the City of Pines. This was the day I anticipated because I've been looking forward to seeing the Strawberry Farm at La Trinidad, Benguet. It was already outside of Baguio City but only a few minutes away.


The beautiful view of the fields filled with strawberries, lettuces, cabbages and sunflowers greeted us on the entrance, not to mention the lovely mountains surrounding it. The weather was perfect, it was sunny but the wind was chilly.  A perfect day to be there!

 This sunflower seemed to be smiling at me. My friend and I visited the part where the sunflowers are planted to get some seeds to bring home. I hope the seeds we bought will all germinate and grow well just like the gorgeous ones here.


 This was a gift from the child who takes care of these plants because I bought a pack of seeds.

 The farmer picking fresh strawberries for us at Php200.00 per kilo.

Lettuces.



Failed shot for my winged shirt. hahaha! I forgot that my hair's long. My photographer didn't seem to notice as well.

Okay, so now you can see the wings, it's just that my view has been full of net.

We stayed there up until there's enough strawberries picked for all of us. Of the many things we did and we went too, this was the most enjoyable for me.
