Berry Delicious


My parents' house has a beautiful garden, where my childhood memories were made. This garden is well kept and I always love to see my children running around the place, and just chilling there after Friday lunch at my folks.

This year our beautiful berry tree has given us so many delicious berries.


But unfortunately, during the latest bout of crazy Shamal winds, the tree's stump was bent and eventually broken. My dad is trying his best to salvage it.


We even had a banana tree at some point. I even remember some bananas popping out, while my dad was standing in front of it like it was a trophy.


The garden also boasts a beautiful lime tree that gives out a scent more beautiful than any French perfume. Its the season for the flowers in bloom now, and many of these flowers then mature to become full fledged Limes, and they are huge. I promise to post a picture of them when they are ripe.

I used to enjoy these delicious berries until my mother decided to cut the tree because of the dirty red spots spreading all over the place

Shajarat-etoot! =)

Looks delicious - I remember kids from our neighbourhood climbing over our fence to eat our berries... I'm sorry the tree has toppled over, I hope another one will sprout out quick enough to have toot for the next season!

Thanks Butterfly and Seroo for stopping by. I've been looking for a recipe to make use of these delicious berries!
Peace,

JAM and preserves - not to brag (but to do so just a tiny bit) my mum does make excellent preserves from berries and other fruits from our garden... =)
