Fruit.jpg

The Oranges sliced, sing on the plate…
they’ve been quite lonely as of late
all alone in their bowl of blue
looking quite bright – but with nothing to do

Now with apples, diced they share
bowls that cooks of note prepare
with other fruit from orchards near
and strawberries grown in the fields each year

In places, you may find some peaches or pears
(depending on what chef has prepared)
mixed up lightly so the fruit is served loose,
served up in its own syrup or juice.

Served up from a place that is quite cold,
so they stay fresh and don’t go old.
A lunchtime, brunch, or evening treat
that any child would love to eat.

And served up wi’ th’ fruit to make children’s dream
is a serving of custard, or better – ice cream!
All served up in a coloured round bowl
An empty dish is the little child’s goal.

Friday Afternoon saw me back at BASIC for the photography group,  where we’ve been working on close up photography.  I used my trusty DSC-3000 from Sony for the first half hour and my Ipad for the rest of the session.

I enjoyed taking the pictures of the flowers – which have been set in little teapots.  These decorate the conservatory area of the Food for thought café

 

I really enjoyed the session, and rewarded myself for my efforts with a Sandwich and a cup of tea from the café!
