Stored inside this

Wonderful fruit

Each bite holds a wonderful flavour in its juice

Enticing the eater to have some more

The only question to answer….one bite or two?



Salford 22nd September

An Acrostic in response to the Daily Post….


Cakes and puddings

Resolutely rounded off, their memory occasionally left

Under the dining room table – a veritable feast for the domestic

Mouse, guinea pig or hamster who help themselves to the

Bits of topping  missed by mum or dad

Look out , underfoot – and

Expect to find a very happy pet indeed – eating the crumbs





hanging off the arms of the tree

a sign of things to come

pink and white blooms send a message

to all who walk around it

cheering as the children play

the apples 🍎 are coming on their way!


Garden Apple Pie


A San-San By Brian F Kirkham (Inky)

The branches against the household wall

holds fruit that’s ripening for a pie

blackberry stems bring fruit with flavour this season

that answers to the pastries call

over with envy the birds do fly

could this be why it cooks with haste ?

depriving the feathered hunters a reason

to head for the window to grab a taste


Yummy Fruit!


A response to the Daily post Weekly Photo Challenge



A Tangerine for Elevenses

When they are around, when i’m heading for BASIC I always take a Tangerine (or two)with me for the break period during the photography class.  I like fruit, but Tangerines more, because of the way they fit in the hand and are easy to Peel!

They are also less messy than another of my Favourites , Oranges…(see below)



Three of my Favourite Fruits

I like oranges, particularly the juice.  But also sliced up and served with a dash of sugar.

Apples are great any time of the year, but if I had to pick a favourite I prefer green to red

When the greengrocer can get them, I also enjoy Kiwi fruit – you cant eat the skin but this fuzzy haired fruit has a really lovely taste

They say you should have five a day – but the fruit is nice any time of the day.bananaAnother fruit I enjoy are Bananas.  Any time of the Day.  either as part of Breakfast, or as a pudding after lunch or tea….Normally seen eaten by me tween two slices of Warburton’s Wholemeal – with or without the addition of chocolate spread 🙂

Also nice covered in custard, or in a cake – or a mix of the two 🙂 Apologies for the last pic not being here – I scoffed the evidence (Hee Hee!)










I love it when the apple trees are in bloom

pink-white blossoms hang around the green

they give the tree a certain appeal

and look as if they’re dancing in a gentle breeze

drifting slowly in the air

gently floating onto carpets of green

creating colourful patterns on the front lawn

…Following last weeks close up food shots, we continued the theme with a heap of vegetables to produce some wonderful still life artwork.  The vegetables were set on a Square slate and against a marble backdrop

No Auto today!  each picture was taken manually – with me setting up angles and close ups of the food stuffs.

Camera used was my able Bridge camera : Sony DSC H-300 with zoom.  Great camera with some wonderful zoom functions.


Trio of stews and soups – Cabbage , Onion, Carrot


Three fruits : Avacado, Apple, Lemon
