"D'ye believe in signs at all, Sassanach?"

"What sort of signs?" I asked guardedly.

In answer he bent, plucked a sprig from the ground, and dropped it into my hand - the dark green leaves like small round Chinese fans, a pure white flower on a slender stem, and on another a half-ripe berry, its' shoulders pale with shade, blushing crimson at the tip.

"This. It's ours, d'ye see?" he said.


"The Frasers'. I mean,' he explained. One large blunt finger gently prodded the berry. "Strawberries ha' always been the emblem of the clan - it's what the name meant, to start with, when a Monsieur Frèseliére came across from France with King Wlliam that was - and took hold of land in the Scottish mountains for his trouble."

King Wiliam that was. William the Conqueror, that was. Perhaps not the oldest of the Highland clans, the Frasers had still a distinguished heritage.

"Warriros from the start were you?"

"And farmers, too." The doubt in his eyes was fading into a smile.

.  .  .  .  .

"Frèseliére, eh? Mr. Strawberry? He grew them did he, or was he only fond of eating them?"

"Either or both," he said dryly, "or it was maybe only that he was redheided, aye?"

I laughed, and he hunkered down beside me, unpinning his plaid.

"It's a rare plant," he said, touching the sprig in my open hand. "Flowers, fruit and leaves all together at the one time. The white flowers are for honour, and red fruit for courage - and the green leaves are for constancy."

My throat felt tight as I looked at him.

"They got that one right," I said.

He caught my hand in his own, squeezing my fingers around the tiny stem.

"And the fruit is the shape of a heart," he said softly, and bent to kiss me.

Curly Locks -- A Nursery Rhyme:

Curly Locks, Curly Locks,
Wilt thou be mine?
Thou shalt not wash dishes,
Nor yet feed the swine;
But sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam
And feed upon strawberries, sugar and cream.

Quoted from Henry V, William Shakespeare

The strawberry grows underneath the Nettle, And wholesome berries thrive and ripen best Neighbour'd by fruit of lesser quality.

Quoted from Richard III, William Shakespeare

My lord of Ely, when I was last in Holborn, I saw good strawberries in your garden there.

By the same author as the previous link, the start of this page begins:
In honour of John Lennon's memory on the tenth anniversary of his tragic, untimely death, I'd like to explore three of his greatest songs as a group because they so well characterize a songwriting sub-genre which is one of John's unique innovations and which remains a special part of his legacy.
