dreamy fruit art

I want to walk into summer…tomorrow.

I want to indulge in the fruits of farmer’s markets, family picnics and beach time gatherings. I’m experiencing a craving for the nutrients which only summer and the warm sunshine provide. Yes, I know, all these fruits are available today, at the nearest market, but it’s not the same. I need to be wearing shorts and a tee, on a lawn chair, no shoes, bare toes feeling the heat of the sunshine, looking at my little plate of refreshing flavors that I just purchased – in its original season.

How much longer is the wait? For starters there’s…pinterest!

Lately, I’ve been cheering myself up with nutrient dense fruit art. Between the cheerful colors and the imaginative settings, I am transfixed. I have actually started planning for when the weather changes and snack time will be more fun!!

These are for March, because sometimes it’s still a bit nippy.

April showers bring may flowers. I can’t wait for when the warm days come two or three times a week. I love that the artist used seeds for the rain.

May and the sunshine is bursting! I’ll be out in my garden, noticing all its busy workers. My clothes will smell of dirt and compost. Grapes – the perfect snack when wearing gardening gloves.
