The strawberry becomes on a strawberry plant. It is framed by the entire beefy repository of the blossom. It has a whitish red or yellow relying upon the mixed bag, and an elongated oval shape pretty much adjusted. In the natural sense, the "true" soil grown foods are achenes actually, these little dry grains (normally alluded mistakenly pips while the recent term ought to just assign their modest focal seed) frequently masterminded in pretty much profound pockets on strawberries, tan to green, and each one containing either an egg (unfertilized) a seed (which then conveys a seed when the cutter develops).

 The plump strawberry being structured by the flower repository (induvie developed under the impact of auxin) is the thing that we expend with or without achenes (the épépinage strawberries is to expel the nuts from whatever is left of thick tissue for get ready solidified). These are the achenes that create a hormone permitting the false foods grown from the ground of grossir2. The weight of the cutter and achenes is identified with cultivar considered, additionally fertilization mode: cross-fertilization produces strawberries and bigger achenes that autofécondation3. Strawberries pollinated by honey bees weigh, generally speaking, more than those that have been through the wind as having been self-pollinated and are likewise firm.

Fraise was an American Thoroughbred racehorse best known for winning the 1992 Breeders' Cup Turf. Bred by Allen E. Paulson, he was sired by Strawberry Road, the 1983 Australian Horse of the Year which Paulson acquired in 1986. The French dam of Fraise, acquired by Paulson in 1983, raced in France and the United States, notably winning the Grand Prix de Deauville and the Grade I Oak Tree Invitational Stakes. 

Fraise, which is French for strawberry, was raced by Madeleine Paulson, who won the colt on a wager with her husband by beating him in a golf game. Trained for racing on turf by future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Bill Mott, Fraise did not race at age two but made ten starts in 1991 at age three, notably winning the Round Table Handicap at Chicago's Arlington Park. Age four was Fraise's best year in racing when he won five of his ten starts. He got his first Grade I win in the Sword Dancer Handicap at Saratoga Race Course and capped off his year with a huge upset in the 1992 Breeders' Cup Turf.

The wrens are passerine birds in the mainly New World family Troglodytidae. There are approximately 80 species of true wrens in approximately 20 genera. The genus eponymous of the family is Troglodytes. Only the Eurasian Wren occurs in the Old World, where in Anglophone regions it is commonly known simply as the "wren" as it is the originator of the name. The name wren has been applied to other unrelated birds, particularly the New Zealand wrens (Acanthisittidae) and the Australian wrens (Maluridae).

Most wrens are small and rather inconspicuous, except for their loud and often complex songs. Notable exceptions are the relatively large members of the genus Campylorhynchus, which can be quite bold in their behavior. Wrens have short wings that are barred in most species, and they often hold their tails upright. As far as known, wrens are primarily insectivorous, eating insects, spiders and other small arthropods, but many species also eat vegetable matter and some will take small frogs/lizards.

Le Conte's Sparrow

It is a very secretive bird that prefers to spend most of its time on the ground under the cover of tall grasses. They are typically very difficult to flush, often only flushing at a distance of 1-3 m as they prefer to run across the ground. When they do emerge they rarely fly more than a foot or two above the grass and often descend again within a few meters.  Because it is so rarely seen, there are still many gaps in knowledge about the Le Conte’s Sparrow. Nests are often very hard to find, and individuals are more often identified by sound than by sight.
