Colour in the garden. The Raspberry is our first and only fruit! (apart from apples galore that is). In the pouring rain of a November day seeing this jewel shining in the magnifying raindrops made me stop and think about colour. How important it is. The bright red pierced the green of the surrounding garden, the red symbolising the colours of autumn and the lost days of summer. These late autumn fruiting plants are such a welcome sight. It tasted of sunshine and rain, of sweet and sour, of success and failure. Can one single fruit really be all these things?
