In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.”

What a beautiful composition.
Thanks Kate. They look so decadent don’t they?
They do, for a second, I thought I could almost smell the quinces ….
I have mine in a bowl too, I wish they woukd keep a bit longer. I love your still life, it looks like a painting.
Me too. I am hoping for some more, from a friend. I looked up some still life and really I should have gone for a black background. (I then tried faking it, but it looked too green screen.)
Thank you Summer.
Beautiful and comforting. Lord knows, we need all the comfort we can get on this day.
I know, it was another shock to wake up to this morning. Our countries have gone crazy!
Beautiful composition! I too keep quince in the rooms for a while, and after that I cut them in slices, add honey, and use this syrup to make an evening cup of tea.
Sounds intriguing. How long do you steep it?
The slices have to shrink in size. It depends on the size and kind of the fruit ( some fruit are drier than the others), but normally it takes less than a week before you can start using it. Just add a couple of spoons to your tea.
That’s gorgeous, Allison. I’m inspired to try something similar. Chapeau!
Thank you! It does look lush looking back on it. Not seen Chapeau used in this way. I like it!
