There is a very special point in the year, when the first mangoes of the season are finally ready to eat. We have been watching them for weeks, from the time when they appear as little walnut-sized promises. At this time, just for a few days there are still a few of the last strawberries of the year available before they disappear until spring. This morning my breakfast included some of that very first mango of the season from the tree in our garden, along with a few of those late strawberries. It is a rare and precious time, one which I anticipate for weeks, and treasure as it is hardly here and so soon gone.
This morning my breakfast bowl also contained a few pieces of dragonfruit. Coincidental, as this is special in a rather different way. Today is the day that the cover image of the Anthology is released, and I am delighted to share this here.
Isn’t it fabulous?
