A strawberry is growing!

Okay, so I bought that strawberry plant awhile back and I realized I have absolutely no idea how strawberries look while they're growing.  I couldn't find any on the plant and I just assumed they weren't growing yet; however, the plant did have a little white flower that bloomed a week or two after I got it.

Well, I was bummed last week because it looked like the flower was dying.  This morning I looked closer and guess what...the center of flower is becoming a strawberry!  Some of you may already know this, but I had no clue!

How cool is that?

I really hope it keeps growing, but I know that the plant actually needs to be outside and in a larger pot.  I'm still optimistic though :)
