some of 'over-ripened', and what the birds and bees don't get fall on the ground.
Around and under the tree it smells like in a distillery!
...the best ones are always at the top of the tree where we cannot reach them
because this tree is so big!
Making Jam? Maybe.....
But definitely Fig chutney!
Very simple and easy....
...with Coleman's mustard powder, ginger, curry, pepperonis, onions...and...or...,
there are many different ways - 'Chacun a son gout'
This is our other large fig tree...
...with yellow figs, slightly smaller,
which are perfect for drying by spearing them along on thin wooden spearsand storing them in a relatively dark, cool, airy and dry space.
Finally I cut all lavender...
...which we left over summer on the shrubs to please our holiday guests.
By now faded and somewhat dried out,
but still good enough to distribute them in the house to keep the moths away,and much better than any moth powder!
And this will go to the store....
...filling the whole room with its beautiful aroma
and helping to protect all my textiles.
My quote for the weekend:
"The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough"
It seems to be good to be a butterfly!
