Signs of Autumn in Kiev Market

A guest blog photograph from my daughter-in-law who texted me this early Sunday morning.

Have to find out the Ukrainian word for these mushroom like pumpkin squash? I’ve never seen these before.

First day of fall is Tuesday September 22.

Autumnal Equinox

The word “equinox” comes from Latin aequus, meaning “equal,” and nox, “night.” On the equinox, day and night are roughly equal in length. Farmers Almanac

Key Lime on Graham

After lunch summer treat, shared with a friend.

One of Leona’s Ice Cream Sandwiches, cut in half at the deli counter.

Perfect for us to share.

St. Matthias Reflections

At the Winterfeld Market Platz. A vendor had a mirror for sale, lying down on the cobblestone path. St.Matthias was reflected in the glass. As I moved closer, I captured a second shot to include a snippet of tree.

Milestone Birthday Wishes

My brother and I are 4,937 miles apart today, on his milestone birthday-also Flag Day in the USA.

A nine hour time difference between Okanogan WA and Berlin. I’m posting birthday greetings as he celebrates so far away.

Today’s photo was taken last Saturday at the Winterfeld Market Platz.

Garlic grown in Poland

At the end of the summer my brother always ships me a box of organic garlic that he’s grown and it’s so fresh and delicious.

Happy Birthday David!  Lots of love, Ruthie

Licorice-Yes or No?

This past week I’ve asked how you feel about eating Cilantro and Rhubarb. What tastes are pleasing to your palate?

Here’s another distinctive flavor.

Licorice-Yes or no?

Meet Menno, from Holland, who has a stand on Saturdays at Winterfeldplatz Market, selling all kinds of licorice. Some with salt. Some with a lot of salt   My eldest son likes licorice. I do, too   But without the salt for me, please. Here is Menno’s website   http://www.lecker-lakritz.de

Somewhere in the archives I have photos of my sister eating a licorice ice cream cone in Twisp Washington. And of course Menno has sold pure licorice powder to our favorite Berlin ice cream store, Kiez Eis, for licorice ice cream. You know I asked.
