Fruitalicious...

It's been stiflingly hot the last couple of weeks, so we've been eating lots of cold fruit in a fruitless (sorry, I couldn't resist!) attempt to cool down. The plums, cherries and grapes have just been taken out of the fridge...see how quickly the condensation has formed (and note our hardy begonias in the background!) :



Rest assured, they tasted as delicious as they look!



The grapes were incredibly sweet and juicy and the plums were perfectly ripe...



The cherries were the most interesting...I nearly didn't buy them due to their pale colour as I'm used to cherries with a dark maroon skin...



Surprisingly, these cherries turned out to be some of the sweetest I've ever eaten. They were grown in Yamanashi Prefecture (where they are famous for their stone fruit) and I'm so glad I took the plunge!

By now I'm sure you are all convinced I'm obsessed with
spherical food!

What's your favourite way to keep cool in the hot summer months?

    i am a grape and cherry FREAK. I like the darker cherries, too.

    Okay, I'm officially hungry. They look great! I'm sure they tasted nice and juicy and sweet.

    Beautiful colors, too.

    Beautiful! Making my mouth water! Much nicer to look at than my father's day raw steak, eh?

    those look absolutely delish! we don't have plums and cherries here (well, we have canned cherries but they're just not the same). lucky you!

    Those are really nice looking fruits! :-)

    My favorite way to cool down in the summer is to be in an air-conditioned place.

    We rarely get weather that hot over here but we are strong believers of having a hot drink like tea to cool you down...as silly as it sounds it seems to work!

    Have you ever had white cherries? Also delicious!

    Great pictures. I'm sorry that I already finished my breakfast fruit salad!
