Chocolate munching reptile
having a field day in the house he is!
arriving on a mission – to empty larder cupboards –
munching on oranges, strawberries and lemons
even limes take his sweet tooth to 7th Heaven
Lemon sorbet’s and Chocolate cake can’t
escape his grasp
of course – it would be easier if you can see him – it’s
not that easy when he’s disappeared into the woodwork

A couple of photos taken from sessions at BASIC Clicks, the photography group i belong to at the Brain and Spinal injury centre in Salford
for starters – here’s the Jaguar .
And here’s some pics of some Jam (Raspberry) and Lemon curd, common thread ? all items were photographed at BASIC. The Jams were made at Food for Thought, BASICs Cafe – they’re tasty on a piece of toast or a crumpet!

The painter mixed up his colours
a little too much in the mixing palette
as the citrus in the bowl
seemed confused in the final act…
Those bananas look like they’ve been picked too early
and are those lemons or limes ?
a confusing picture from the artist
to which watching you’ll spend some time
But the green – yellow colouring is perfect
to the greengrocer picking the fruit
he’s picked fruit under ripe – so there’s no room to gripe
while you wait for the colour to take root.
Zesty yellow lemons 🍋
infuse a certain something, when
navigating the crispy coating of a cod or plaice
got to admit .. its fresh in flavour,
yes .. I will have some more!
zingy red chilli 🌶
is just the thing, when bringing out the flavour of 🍖
Note though, add too much and you can ruin a dish.
great Scott! It brings the heat to a 🍛
yet without it, they always seem tame

I’ve seen rainbows in the sky, but they’ve never been as vibrant as the ones in the Greengrocers shop window
Rich Red Strawberries – it amazes me how he can get them even in Winter, but they’re tasty with sugar and cream.
Oranges – I’ll eat these till they come out of my ears, but a zesty orange sets me up for the day.
Yellow Lemons – perfect for Lemon Dishes (of course) and an accompaniment for any cocktail drink.
Green Limes – the Lemons cousin, this is nice either in a Drink or a flavouring in a sponge cake – Like the Lemon, it needs a little sugar to cut through the sharpness
Blackcurrants – wonderful flavour – works marvels in a local drink with raspberries and grapes round my neck of the woods (Manchester, UK) – Vimto
Indigo – actually the colour of “RED” Grapes – nice in a fruit salad
and last but not least Violet – the colour of Damsons – which when in a jam turns rice pudding a lovely purple colour.
Written for National Poetry Month – A Tale of Lemons and Lemonade
If life gives you lemons
Yellow like sunshine
sharp but – somehow sweet
An acid taste
brought down by sugar
A tale of life embodied
in a single fruit
Grown in a sun drenched orchard
on trees with waxy leaves
You started green – but soon grew
as you lost your pigment blue
and squashed in a press
you gave up your juice
and entering fizz
let your flavours loose
each drop enough
to quench the driest of thirsts
Sign of summer – embodied
in every colourful sun drenched bubble
