Giant

I picked over 12 lbs of gooseberries from just one bush on my allotment - some of them were giants!

I love these! They have that translucent gooseberry feel! *Great* to see your latest other stuff. :)

Oh my - fab illustration - love the colouring. That must be some allotment you've got - do you grow all your veg and fruit? I just love gooseberries so much!! Haven't picked a 'real' one for years. Think I might have to buy me some frozen gooseberries soon and search out some elderflower cordial to make a fool!

Twelve POUNDS! Whoa! Enough for a giant gooseberry pie! Actually, I've never tasted gooseberries, but I do love saying it.

I think the only way I've ever had goosberries was in a canned fruit cocktail as a child!

I love this illustration! I agree with everyone on the colors.

Funny you popped up at my blog because I thought of you this morning as I picked some Queen Anne's lace for a flower arrangement. Their delicate pattern reminds me of your work ;)

Wow! Mine..mine..
You know how much I love green Nicky and this time your blue greeny gradient background completely made me fallen in love with food again.
I love the simplicity of the colours and arrangement here-
The angles of the arrangement are splendid!

Love the fact it's like discovering the beauty of oneself slowly. I agree with you, some of them were giants...Ha..Ha..
