last year's lovelies - fruit, veg and flowers

It’s super, super cold here today. I was looking at some photos I took last spring and summer and thought I would post them. I love the change of seasons here, but it’s nice to have a look at the beauty and colour of last year’s bounty.

I hope you enjoy them!
