Green and red

I’m doing a photo-a-day project on Flickr, and two out of the last three photos mainly consist of the colors green and red….

Red & green

Swiss Balcon geraniums

Figs & a razzie

Figs and a raspberry

(I was delighted to see real, fresh figs in the grocery store. Haven’t had them since I was in Greece many years ago. We were driving down a dusty road on the isle of Crete and picked them from an overhanging branch. One of the best things I’ve ever tasted. These can’t compare, but it was wonderful remembering.)

With all the hot weather we’ve had, could I be subconsciously longing for winter days and Christmas? I’m certainly looking forward to fall and “sweater weather.”

Great weekend, everyone!

    Carole, I love figs too. If you’d like a rather unique way to serve them to guests, try this recipe ( and serve it up on your best pedestal plate! It was a huge success last time I made it … the way I love food … simple and gracious.

    Don’t think I’ve had figs before, but they sure do look delicious in this photo! Great color!

    I love red and green together. And I like figs a lot as well. We can buy them here but rather those with the dark purple skin.

    • We can find those occasionally, but they’re so perishable, the season is really brief. There’s a Brown Turkey fig tree where I walk, and the owner put up security lights because people were stealing them! He had a security camera too, but only for a few days.

    I’m a big fan of figs also! Don’t think I’ve had these green kind. Usually the ones I find are brown. Do these green ones taste different?

    • They’re actually supposed to be a soft yellow, so not completely ripe yet. They get really soft when yellow and nearly melt in your mouth. I think they’re a lot better than the brownish-purple ones. Like strawberry jam.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fig. Love the colors!

    The raspberry almost looks transparent.
