Jack and I went to a friend's house to spend some "not busy with new house stuff" time and we picked up a bag full of persimmons that had already ripened and fallen to the ground.
I plan on trying to make persimmon freezer jam with them (yes, I know making anything with persimmons can go badly, I am hoping that doesn't happen!).
In the meantime I thought they were lovely and might make some nice photos.
It's been so long since I sat down and enjoyed taking pictures, I hope you'll indulge me.
Spilling out of a silver creamer...
Maybe a vintage napkin will add some life...
Getting closer (What? you don't have animal skulls kicking around your front porch?!?! Welcome to life with a biologist)...
Ahhhhh, maybe something for a Halloween blog banner?...
Let's try just that creamer again with fewer persimmons...
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I think I'm in love. Will it creep people out? It's sorta Georgia O'Keefe, no?
And one more go at a Halloween theme.
Last year all of my fall blog banners were acorns. There are going to be a few with persimmons in our future here for sure. LOL
And my P.S.:
That cat on my not too thrilled husband's lap is grandpa's cat! And look how close she is to our other female cat.
We've taken to calling her "our little inheritance" and as luck would have it she seems to be fitting in just fine. Gone is the crazy, semi-feral cat who was hiding in the ceilings and trying to climb up the walls backwards. She is a lap cat 100% now. She follows me every where and lordy is she a sweetie.
I am not sure I mentioned it here (I know I did on facebook), but when I took her in to be spayed she was actually very close to death. When the vet opened her up he found that she had a very serious infection in her uterus (which was twice as big as she is) and it was hard to remove without spilling the infection. He said she only had a few days at best to live if I had not brought her in when I did.
I am very thankful I insisted on trapping her when I did.
Back tomorrow with some thrift finds. I hope. Happy Thursday!
