Pagan Eye: Tempting Fruit
With the weather getting cooler and the evenings drawing in, it seems summer is coming to an end, but I feel ready for autumn and love the time when fruit can be found drooping from branches by the wayside. The fruit in this picture isn't available for wild foraging, however. It is growing on the front wall of a house near where I live, hanging over the doorway and windows. If I was a kid I might be tempted to do some scrumping, but as I am law-abiding I just snuck into the garden to take this photo.
Mind you, I am not exactly sure what the fruit is. It looks a bit like Mirabelle plum, but that grows on trees rather than on a wall-climbing plant. The leaves are longer than plum leaves and the fruit looks slightly more elongated too. I'd be very grateful if anyone who recognises it could let me know by leaving a comment below this post. Otherwise I might just have to sneak back into that garden and commit fruit theft to investigate further...
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
