Beautiful Fleur.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Thank You! for the persimmons. It has been years since I saw one. We used to have a tree close to the house I grew up in.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

So nice to see persimmons! I have loved them for years but husband just tried them for the first time this winter. He loves them too! Thumbs up

Not real fond of persimmons but it’s always fun to cut a seed open to get a winter weather prediction (according to folklore anyway) Whistling If the kernel is shaped like a spoon (or shovel) it means heavy snow will fall. If shaped like a fork, the snow will be light and powdery. If the kernel is shaped like a knife, you can expect cold cutting winds.

Really a beautiful shot of the persimmons Fleur!

You are welcome. Your banners are always lovely.
I am looking forward to eating persimmons when the Japanese Persimmon I got last fall gets big enough to produce.
