Figs from our garden


We have twelve olive trees, four fig trees, one pomegranate and a couple of as-yet-unidentified trees. These fruits were picked on Sunday and the black figs were absolutely ripened to perfection, juicy and sweet. Enough to make me change my mind about figs.

Figs???
I suppose you live in England, and you have figs in your garden? I am from Algarve (Portugal), and I thought this was the land of figs,...it's amazing figs grow in cold countries like England!
(I found your blog when I search in blogsphere, people who like bridge).

I do live in England but these are from the garden of our holiday home in Puglia in southern Italy. The mystery is explained :-)
