Today’s theme is December Delights and there are many! This is the time of the year when we wake up to dewy mornings. When the heat that we live with for the rest of the year has bid us au revoir. It’s time to indulge! With all that dew falling on them, veggies never tasted better! There’s so much to look forward to. Plant annuals, re-pot, add manure. Plan a picnic, go on another bird-watching trip…for us this is the best time. Without the oppressive heat, all impossible things seem possible!
Although several fruits are available during the cooler months, oranges are synonymous with our winters. Though they start to appear in the markets from November, they taste best in December. One December delight is surely when the family sits in that wintry sun, peeling and having the juiciest oranges.
These pictures (above and below) were taken in my friend Smita’s garden recently. Both varieties are acidic and does well for sweet and spicy pickles. Pickling days are here again….
It was a joy to find my coreopsis re-seeding recently. In this season the cut flowers last much longer. The photo below is of flowers cut five days ago.
Find out more at Katarina’s ROSES AND STUFF. It’s interesting to see the different interpretations.
Thank you for stopping by. Hope you all have a great weekend!
