Weekend Snapshot: Number 21

I took the first photograph below yesterday afternoon (Saturday). I love clouds against a blue sky. Especially clouds that look like lamb's wool. I'd like to jump onto that sky and live to talk about it but I know about gravity so I won't try it.
The photograph below is of one of my favorite treats, honeybells. For those of you who have never heard of honeybells, they are a hybrid between an orange and a grapefruit and are only available for a couple of weeks each year. They are delicious. I get a box of them in late January, or early February, depending on when they are available. One of my sisters gives them to me as a gift each year. I enjoy them as part of my weekend brunch, as well as every other day until I eat them all. The honeybell slices were only a portion of my brunch last weekend, but I took a photograph before I added the rest of the food onto the center of the plate. I think they look pretty on my mother's wedding china.I love bridges of all different sizes and type. There are a number of different bridges on the paths I walk on near my house. I took the shot above, a week ago Friday.

Lovely images - the honeybell segments look very pretty on that plate. I've never heard of a honeybell before, but they sound, and look, delicious. Have a peaceful Sunday.

I love your photos...and those honeybells...sounds like something I would like, reminds me a bit of a pomello but on a smaller scale...your bridge photos is brilliant....

TRICOTINE said...

Beautiful photos! I have posted a sky too... LOL

Honeybell looks delicious! I love citrus, but I don't think I have ever had Honeybell. I'll look around and see if I can find some.

Happy week ahead! :-)

Lamb's wool, how nice. When I was a child I enjoyed imagining being up on the clouds and lying down on them.

Those honeybells remind me of a fruit we call dalandan. It has green peeling.

That's a lovely bridge.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I have another entry at my new blog:
Soulful Thoughts. If you have time, hope you can drop by. Thanks.

Hahhaaa... if wasn't for gravity, I too will love to jump around the clouds :P

Those honeybell looks like 'mandarin oranges' normally also available in late Jan early Feb during the Chinese New Year period. We normally exchange them in pairs while visiting friends and relatives. They symbolise luck :)

SabineM said...

Honeybell. What a sweet name for a citrus fruit.

We have a tiny citrus which is a mixed breed of the Mandarin orange and lime. I don't know how it tastes because it is a new fruit.

HiPnCooLMoMMa said...

that is a pretty shot of the clouds, remember taking photos like those in the airplane. i wonder how the honeybells taste like, is it sweet? i don't like grapefruit =(

love the bridge too, beautiful shot!

Lynn said...

It's like this is the bridge on my mind when I read Bridges of Madison County years ago. Great, great picture, Carver!

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. Some of you asked what honeybells taste like. They are like an extra sweet orange but have their own flavor. Hard to describe but I'd rather eat a honebell than dark chocolate and I love dark chocolate.

stev & emz said...

wow@ i love clouds photos.. i have 2 right now when I was flying to Japan. and it was some great shots, the clouds are below you. =)
happy ws!

Guess Who(???) said...

Carv,
This is a really good one...
-the clouds do look very like lamb's wool- let's jump together and defy gravity!
-the honeybells look delish. I bet dark chocolate would go well with them for an extra yummy treat.
BTW-
(We had dinner at my auntie's house Saturday night and she used Grandmama's wedding china. Sigh.)
-And I love bridges too, for lots of reasons.
B. thinks you should add some of your images to Google Earth. There's another project/diversion!
Glad you had a good weekend...
Love, K.

When one burns one's bridges, what a very nice fire it makes.
