apple, purple, icecream

Posted by Picasa Apples are hard for balckbirds to resist.

A head of purple hair arranged in a ponytail is lit by the afternoon sun. The woman is accompanied by a long haired man. His hair, a mixture of grey and tawny, has one shank dyed purple to match the pony tail

An old couple walk march side by side licking ice creams in cornets. You feel it isn't something that they do everyday. The pleasure all the greater for that, and perhaps for evoking more distant icecream memories.

I had a rhubarb flavour ice-cream cone today!

I'm enjoying seeing your Blackbird enjoying his/her apple as well as the folks enjoying their ice cream.

Wondering if the purple tressed couple might like a treat as well?
