My November 2013 In Pictures.

Days and weeks can pass, and I have nothing to write, nothing to share, but even when I'm silent I'm still working with my camera, recording a mood, capturing a moment.  So rather than keep the photos to myself, this is an introduction to the first of my monthly picture posts.

The picture above shows the autumn colours of the Japanese Maple in my garden in Hythe, Hampshire, at 09:18 on Sunday 10th November 2013. Commonly named the Coral-Bark Maple and also know as Acer Palmatum Senkaki, or Sango Kaku.  Click on the link below to find out more.

Wet Walnuts.

The first of the new crop of walnuts arrived at our local market at the end of last month and I bought a bagful.  I do like a wet walnut; they're only available for a few weeks in autumn, so I always buy a few when I see them.  If you've never eaten a wet walnut, you're in for a treat; they look like regular walnuts, the outside shell is hard and dry, but the nut inside is fresh and yielding (wet), with a delicate just picked flavour, milky and sweet.  Mmmm....

The pictures show a handful of wet walnuts, fresh from the local market, photographed on Tuesday 29th October 2013 and eaten shortly afterwards!
