Here are a few things collected from the garden as the warmth very slowly recedes. On the left is a prickly pear which are a nightmare to handle. They have tiny spikes, thinner than a strand of hair, which can get into your skin with ease. What’s more, they are then almost impossible to see to pull out.
There’s also a small aubergine, an unripe orange that never fulfilled its dream of being squeezed into a glass – and chillis of which we have hundreds. [Click on image for higher res.]

What a beautiful ensemble 🙂
Prickly pears – love the taste, but refuse to handle them.
We’ve learnt our lesson….and still haven’t tried one yet – to eat that is.
They are a bit pipsy.
