Fruits of Summer

There is something special about summer, the lazy days, the swimming - in a pool or ocean, kids playing with a hose in the backyard. Laughter, eating outdoors and the fruit. For some reason everyone in this house seems to start eating fruit - not just the apples, now neglected in the bowl, but the fridge is stuffed with cherries, strawberries, peaches, watermelon and mangoes.
Our compost is packed with skins and seeds.

I was Christmas shopping in the city and very taken with this offering at The Galleries, stopped for a peach then continued on my way.

Does fruit mean summertime to you?

Remember: "You've got to go out on a limb sometimes because that's where the fruit is." Will Rogers

Linking up this old post for #RubyTuesdayToo as I've just not been seeing any reds at all!


  1. I love summer fruits and I love that quote, how very true.

  2. I'm not a huge fruit fan although I do like fruit smoothies. I try not to have too much because of the sugar in fruit - even though it's natural, it can still be too much for me at times.

  3. I love fruit and this image makes me happy just looking
