you get lost and find a better one.

No fruit! 
This will never do!
So I went shopping.
For more fruit of course.

apples and bananas this of course I needed the bigger bowl.
Luckily I'd just washed the dust out of it.


  1. My first thought when the countdown reached one was....wait for it....wait for it.... THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO! :-).

  2. Windsmoke; that's odd. I don't recall Thunderbirds having anything to do with pears. They were great little puppets though.

  3. you are a skilled magician, what a great disappearing trick! Now if only we could make people disappear like that..

  4. What sort of apples are they? I discovered Jazz apples last year and fell in love. I am really looking forward to their return.

  5. A delight to the eye,
    A treat to the tongue,
    Nourishment for the body.
    Beauty no matter how you look at it.

  6. Hi River,

    Pears - another of nature's mistakes. Horrible things...




  7. I like finding new apples and found Honeycrisp a year ago. Great in season. I read they were being marketed to the American public like they were Red Delicious, but no matter. I like them.

  8. River...... Some people live for fruit. I've hardly ever eaten fruit except my apricots and pears off the tree. BUT I love the bowl and it's a fruit bowl with all the little fruits lined along the top.

  9. Fruit is forever my choice over vegetables.

    Sometimes a simple entry is perfect. Like this one from you.

  10. Catherine ex oh mwah; ask them to wash and dry your dishes, then see how quickly they disappear.

    EC; these are Royal Galas, my favourite. The Jazz are back in the stores already, I haven't tried them yet.

    Delores; fruit is everything you've described. I like watching pears ripening as the days go by. The change from hard green to ripe yellow, the red blush and little freckles.

    Plasman; perhaps you've tried them when they're too green and not sweet? Or too ripe and mushy soft?

    Joanne; America has different names for some of their apples (and potatoes too), I've never heard of the Honeycrisp.

    Manzanita; I love apples and bananas, and most other fruits, but it's hard to get them properly ripe and fresh. There's a small "season" window when they're perfect, before and after that it's all "storage" fruit and I can taste the difference and the texture is wrong too. The bowl I snapped up when it was on sale for half price about 16 years ago.

    JeanetteLS; I think I love fruits and vegetables equally. Although there are some of each I just don't like at all.

  11. I love seeing pics of your place. You've cleaned it up so nicely and it's such a sweet little home. I like your walking about town posts as well.
