The last apple in the bowl
18/52 for the group 2014 weekly alphabet challenge

This week's theme was: R is for Round

Last week was horrendously busy and stressful with assessment deadlines that were absolutely non-negotiable. I didn't have time to go out to look for interesting round things to photograph and we had started to run out of fresh food by yesterday. By this morning, there was only one solitary apple left in the bowl.

The last apple

Don't worry. We won't starve. I got the marks uploaded yesterday evening and the random sample of assignments was posted to the moderator in time to catch the last post, which is 12.30 pm on a Saturday. And then I went to the Co-op and did a big shop, so we have food again. Except I forgot to buy apples, so this is still the last solitary apple in the bowl.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

I love how the lines of the wood echo and embrace the curve of the apple itself.

Thanks. I like this old wooden bowl. It's just the thing for keeping apples in.

Great pic. The grain of the wood against the shiny apple works well.

Thanks. I can't remember now whether this was the bowl we kept fruit in when I was a child or whether it's just a very similar one we inherited from my mother-in-law. Either way, in my mind fruit belongs in wooden bowls.
