Who would have think,                                                                                                            that, to bake an upside down apple tarte,                                                                         one has to jump up,                                                                                                                           reaching out with the fingertips                                                                                                to the higher bigger juicier sun ripe apples.

During this!…. birds picking them easy and delighted!


Wild walnuts Friday, Sep 24 2010 

The time has come to collect the fresh walnuts falling out of their green shells when the wind blows through the old trees.The joy to come home with baskets filled with these free gifts , these curved kernels who will be a delight in the coming cold evenings and feed our brains with their strengths full of light.

Blackberry’s, elderberry s and rose hips promise red cheek jam smiles too!
