The blossoms are gone from the fruit trees and the tiny fruit has appeared. Soon we will be eating some delicious summer fruits and berries.
Tiny, perfectly formed pears.
And let’s not forget the grapes.
I hope I get to try some before I have to go home.
Lucky you. Here the fruittrees are not even flowering. The “don’t know” I think will be apples. And raspberries are raspberries… 😉
I will eat some for you when they are ready.
Beautiful… so beautiful… Thank you dear Debra, with my love, nia
I was able to eat some cherries in Bagni, but I do not think that they were locally grown.
They were probably from Sicily, it is much warmer down there.
What do you do with gooseberries…never had them?
My grandmother had a gooseberry bush and she made heavenly jam from them. I don’t know what else you would do. Hopefully I will get to try some soon.
Just looking at this post makes you feel alive Debra. Not to mention healthier? Fingers crossed for a sampling…But how will you ever leave?? Jxx
It is always difficult to leave, but I do love Brisbane in winter.
The photograph of the vineyard is superb. I sat for awhile just absorbing it. We, in the U.S., have a deep, almost primal, hungry for such ancient beauty. Actually living and walking here every day seems a bit incongruous even. I enjoyed this post. Thank you.
I think Italy has more beautiful things per square inch than just about anywhere.
