Such a gorgeous blue/purple almost.
What a gorgeous blue plums!PS: Dearest Merisi, thank you so much for your affectionate comment. Much love, Sonia.
Charles Gramlich,I remember a plum tree in my parents' orchard that carried the same - or similar - kind of fruit. We called them Zuckerzwetschken, sugar plums, because they were incredibly sweet when fully ripe.
Jinksy, indeed! :-)Sonia,*hugs*
what a beautiful blue !!!!so happy to see you todaykaryxxp.s. loved the story about the christmas goose !!!
Nature doesn't make a lot of blue-coloured food, but when it does, it's spectacular. I love the contrast between the cool tones of the plums and the warm of the hazy background. Yummy.
You've shared a very gorgeous combination of colors...and I do love your title for this post too...luminous indeed!
Makes my mouth water!
@ My Farmhouse Kitchen:*giggles*I looked it up: contrary to what I remembered, the recipe (Braised Goose with Port and Vegetables") was not in the original, but in the Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook. I did not even own it back then, but a friend copied the recipe. I had never cooked a goose before.
@ louciao,these are apricots and peaches, the warm colour dots in the background. ;-)@ Sara at Come Away With Me:August always changes vocabulary, doesn't it?The light is special, even on overcast mornings, like today. @ Pat:I remember many a tummy ache from when I was a small child and gorged myself with ripe plums from the low hanging branches of the tree.
I'd love to pop one (okay, more than one) of those in my mouth. ;-)
Paz,careful, Paz, careful! ;-)
I have never seen plums like this in all my born days. They look heavenly!
So beautiful -- and now I'm imagining these beauties in your grandmother's drying house.
Did you taste these, Merisi? I wonder if they are as good as they look?
What a lovely blue!
I have not seen plums yet here, maybe because we are a bit more north:)
Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
