AUGUST THE MONTH OF FIGS
THE MOST USEFUL TREE IN NATURE !!!
because you can get and eat the fruits two times every year, you can dry its fruits, you can make jam with them, you can enjoy its shadow, you can draw it and you can wear its leaves as lingerie how is the mode this year :
In my garden in Apulia they start to ripe at the beginn of August and every time I work on drying them under the strong sun of August ...
... for getting backed figs later
this year I drew figs ... so many ... for the sketchbook of Golden Lady Doreen too
and showed how many interesting varieties and differences in shape and colour they could have !
In Septemember these figs will be involved in a bloody, long and terrible war against the conkers ; the source of this we don't know well (maybe because a challenge, maybe because the incomprehensions of philosophy between fruits of the South and of the North) ...
... this is history ! No wars anymore now, only peace and love ... but figs are the best !
