Six Word Saturday:
Eating fruit straight from the tree.
We spent Christmas at my sister-in-law’s place this year. She has a big house and an even bigger garden with several of the fruit trees absolutely laden with fruit right now. I was looking forward to the fresh raspberries and picked a big bowl the second day we were here but discovered immediately afterwards that the scratches I’d endured from the leaves and canes became an allergic reaction so I’ll send someone else next time. We’ve also had strawberries, oranges, figs and plums. I’ve also seen but not eaten pears, apples, grapefruit, grapes and nectarines. I think my surprise favourite have been the yellow plums photographed above – they are so sweet and delicious! I had also been looking forward to eating cherries but they apparently had an early season this year so we got some from a local grower instead.
Happy Saturday everyone and have a brilliant new year.
