Who Wants Fruit?

I couldn’t resist. My kids collaborated on this drawing together and I just had to share.

I’m officially at that point in the winter season when I have just about had my fill of cold and rain. I’m longing for the warm weather, and I’m especially antsy for the return of sweet local berries, apricots, melons, cherries and plums.

In the meantime, I shouldn’t complain. The Mandarin oranges have been exceptional lately.

They bring the sunshine I have been craving.

What about you? What summer fruits do you miss?

    Your photos even bring the sunshine into my dark and dank, windowless office here under the garage! That’s how good a team you and mandarins make. GREG

    I miss nectarines – they taste so different here in Cali! Now that I’ve started this blog, looking forward to trying out recipes for summer fruits :)

    Manadarins are absolutely my favorite these days! I’m looking forward the summer fruit though but more because I want it to be sunny!

    I miss the stone fruits! Peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots…*sigh*
    The imports are starting to come in though…not the same, but at least something to tide me over!
    I love seeing kids art! It has such a genuine quality that adult’s art lacks. They don’t care about perfection of composition, technique, color…they just draw and color for the joy of it! Thanks so much for sharing this!

    Kids have the best artwork, so simple and to the point. I love fruit, so I miss locally grown fruit, like strawberries, blueberries, and melons. Great pics!

    Couldn’t agree with you more! These photos are beautiful. Citrus always make me smile (does that make me weird??) I miss big giant local blackberries!

    Love the drawing! And your gorgeous photos!

    I miss berries, especially blueberries. I’ve been eating frozen berries but it’s definitely not the same!

    I love those little oranges….but what I miss most about summer are nectarines and peaches…..sigh.

    I would love a good peach, the kind where the juice just runs down your chin….

    LOVE the artwork! I have seen their work first hand and I must say they are very creative – little picasso’s in the making. I miss a juicy peach that is golden inside and just so perfect. Love your photos!!!

    Children’s artwork are true masterpieces! The weather has been quite nice here, so I don’t have too much to complain about. Plus, I am trying out fruits that I haven’t tasted in ages or ever. But berries are scarce or very pricey here – those are the fruits that I’ll be missing this summer.
