Summer...

...is far, far away. Just a faint memory, at the moment.

It's cold, miserable, foggy, showery and generally quite wintery out there. No complaints, though. The ground is still happy to slurp up the rain.

Figs! That's summer. Sweet, juicy, full of sunshine. Even if they have been put in jars with syrup. You still have summer in this bowl. With a very generous dollop of thick, home-made yoghurt.
We might tackle a bowl of home-preserved cherries next. Or apricots. Or pears. Summer in jars! :)

I wish we could grow figs here. That looks heavenly with the yogurt!

So lovely to pull out some preserve Summer!

I did so yesterday, turning a handlefull of frozen strawberries into a yummy"strawb cheese cake ice cream".

Drooling thinking over figs and cherries - sit back and enjoy!
