sweet. ripe. summer

The figs are literally falling of the trees.  The grapevine more fruitful than ever since buying our home 4 years ago. Tomatoes, plenty for summer party dips, lunches with fresh mozzarella  and big yummy pasta dishes.

I would seriously send some to you if I knew they would make it to your home in one piece, ready for a bite.  You are welcome to come over and pick up.  We can share a salad.

We are enjoying our last couple weeks of summer vacation. The kids are home, sun out till late and time with friends and family. All this makes me happy. 

We have been enjoying all the treats summer has to offer. 

Like these sweet, sweet figs.

How delicious!!! The grapes look so yummy! We only have a tomato plant almost by accident and it gives pretty good tomatoes, it's exciting!!

Gorgeous, gorgeous photos. I don't think I've ever craved fruits and vegetables as much as I do in this moment. LOL.

Never had a fresh fig. Someday!

love simple and easy summery salads where the highlight IS the fresh produce, asides the fact I heart figs.
