Fragile

While the boys and I were harvesting some cape gooseberries today, I came across this one. It must have been lying under the bush for weeks, the fruit ripening while the casing was decaying. What a beautiful symbol for autumn, don't you think?

Stunning and very autumnal indeed. I just harvested the last of our cherry tomatos *sad sigh*.
Good luck for Kraftbomb this weekend.

That is gorgeous - looks like an amazing lacey bird cage.

aren't they beautiful. I find them in my garden too - minus the fruit. I agree they are like a lacy birdcage.

That's wonderful! So delicate and perfect it almost doesn't look real. Plus really yummy to boot. Art doesn't usually taste good like that :)

yumm! I haven't had those since I was little — we used to find them in my Nana's garden, they're best when they're see-through like that and they look so beautiful.

See you at the weekend! xx
