“Maybe we should get these mandarins for the Snail Party”, Jon said to me holding out a mesh bag of pretty orange fruit with stems and leaves still on them.
They were irresistible on their own but then I imagined passing a bowl of them around, with the little dark chocolates I got at the Co-op the day before.
What a delightful dessert.
When we got home from shopping I put them in the little wooden bowl. And this morning, when the sun retreated behind the clouds after his morning appearance, I put the bowl on my crocheted chair in the dining room, just because I knew they’d look even more beautiful there.
I took a couple of pictures with my Lomo’ Instant camera, which I still haven’t figured out how to use. But, with a little bit of experimenting, I tried to turned those mandarines into art.
