These are beautiful, Stray. Really. I love the sense of depth you got with the light and focus. Makes me feel as if I were a bee, on my way through the leaves to these scented sweets!

these fruits promise to be ... tasty? unreachable? they do look clean and without mold, which in our part of the world is a real accomplishment without sprays. are these your own fruits?

g, that's an interesting question. The truth is that they are sharing my outdoor living space, and I expect that I will pick them, but I feel that our relationship hasn't been any more involved than that. The people who's family home this was from the day they built it until just a couple of months ago did the planting and tending in the vulnerable years.

Grapes in this climate ... ambitious, but our record July has set them up nicely.

In some ways it is a fitting thing ... my mother's family have a fruit farm, which her brother inherited. I spent many summers picking redcurrants and gooseberries ... greengages, plums, raspberries and strawberries ... though even a south facing slope in Scotland could surely never ripen grapes?

Some of the fruit is a little too reachable - I caught the dog stealing half-ripened grapes yesterday!
