Sunset and some plums

Sunset yesterday, 30 August 2012, at La Renaudière outside Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher. It was about 8:40 p.m.

We had a nice afternoon. Blogger friends Jean and Nick (A Very Grand Pressigny) stopped by on their motorcycles for a short visit. Walt made a clafoutis of sweet mirabelle plums. Here's a recipe on Walt's blog for the classic cherry clafoutis. Just substitute plums or even seedless grapes.

A gift of little mirabelle plums from a neighbor's tree.
They're about the size of large cherries.

There was coffee and wine out on the terrace. It's important to take advantage of the fine days of late summer. Cooler weather is settling in for the weekend.


  1. I predict a long, warm fall. Maybe it's wishful thinking.
    But then, any weather here beats Calgary weather.

  2. Hello Ken:
    What a magnificent Tiepolo sunset which is only eclipsed by the very beautiful and delicious looking fruit.

    Kellemes hétvégét.

  3. TCH, I certainly hope you are right about that long, warm fall.

    Hi Jane and Lance, and welcome. The fruit was sweeter than the sunset, but both were nice experiences.

  4. That sunset photo is worth everything you've had to deal with this summer, right???
    The plums look yummy.

  5. Just now seeing our favorite plums! There is a crop afterall. Wish I was there right now.


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
