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.

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.
