Can I have your autograph now that you are famous? I have never seen these before and they make a lovely still life, particularly with your inspired addition of the leaves.

We are looking forward to figs straight from the trees in Spain from Friday for a couple of weeks. Do you think Guavas would grow in Spain?

Unlike many who have commented I have tasted Guava; unfortunately I am not really a fruit lover and this is not one of the rare fruits that I indulge in. Much to my confusion I do find the look of fruit very appetising; but the smell, texture and taste are what really put me off.

This still life is very appetising to me, definitely because of the skill of the photographer.

Most of my fruit intake is from fermented fruits, hence the reason I am obliged to indulge on a regular basis in order to maintain my levels of vitamin C and of course the essential anti oxidants Grin GrinGrinGrin
