Soon to be Red Currants

These tiny beautiful blooms of the Red Lake Currant bush produce scrumptous petite red currants.. Since this was intended as a Spring banner, and this has been scheduled as an October 2nd banner, the abundance of the cascading little fruit has long since appeared, ripened and been made into a delicious marmalade.

Perfect banner Fleur!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Great banner, Fleur! I used to eat those berries as a young kid (back in the dark ages). Whistling Just a couple of days ago I was telling my hubby that I didn't see them anymore. I'll just have to plant one. Smiling

This makes a cool banner and a plant I was not familiar with. Nice! Lovey dubby
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

I also went to the data base to review your photo of ripened berries. I like eating them fresh off the bush, however marmalade on breakfast toast is a real treat on winter mornings! The banner of blooms and leaves serves to remind us just how quickly summer passes into fall. But we have a beautiful banner left behind to remind us.

πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸ”΄Thank you for liking my Red Currant Banner. Growing them is interesting, and handling them is a delicate undertaking, or serve simply as a finishing touch to a prepared dish. πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸ”΄

πŸ”΄ I appreciate the thumbs and generous acorns. πŸ”΄
