Le panier de French plums

Ha!  Summer goodness!

Since there is no "where is Waldoniel" this year (sorry AIO) maybe we can have a prize for whomever can identify the three fruits in French and in English.  A big smooch if you manage both (PS: "plums" is not enough...)  And yes, what you see in the background is low tide, so yes, I am also into fishy stuff....

    I think I made a mistake and the large one is apricot, abricot

    J'allais dire abricots, prunes, mais je ne distingue pas les autres. Anonyme qui m'a précédé a sans doute raison: des mirabelles. Mais comme cela fait bien cinquante ans que, expatrié, je n'en vois pas... Anonymous avant moi a gagné!

    you win. whenever we meet i'll smooch you :)

    Lovely, just to look at and breathe in the environment.
    Daniel, I was thinking (oh,no -ha)
    -where do most Venezuelans go?
    Being involved in tourism some, I urged Venezuelans recently to visit Chile-for example.Noone interested. I even urged my nephew-studying accounting-to apply there.No.
    Anyway, certainly mostVenezuelans visit US-Disney, (and I suppose most Venezuelan ex-pats live in Florida)-maybe this is why Chavez really hates US so much-he has to compete with Mickey-haha.
    And,without Minnie...

  8. Funny, I just was at the supermarket and saw them all. I was not sure about buying some because I am not familiar with them, I may try. Which prume is the sweetest?

    Mirabelle is sweater. Reine Claude is kind of an acquiered faste.

    «Mirabelle is sweater. Reine Claude is kind of an acquiered faste.»

    Sweater? Acquiered? Faste?

    Daniel, you've been drinking too much mirabelle!

    Comme Joseph, tiens:

    Joseph absorba coup sur coup trois verres de mirabelle des Vosges (Duhamel, Passion J. Pasquier, 1945, p.186).

    Ma tante dit:
    abricots, des prunes reine claude et des mirabelles.

  12. Haha! This works just fine for me, thanks. Wouldn't mind being there at all.

    This picture reminds me of a quote
    by Karl Lagerfeld-
    “What I hate most in life are people who are not really the peach of the day but who want to be young and sexy. You can fool nobody. There is a moment when you have to accept that somebody else is younger and fresher and hotter. Life is not a beauty contest.”
