banana, juice, light
This outer layer of fiber or bark round the base of a banana palm has an appealing woven quality.
Juice, made with the help of juicer from apples (three large Bramleys and three Cox's), carrots and ginger, makes us feel virtuous because it is healthy, but its perfect balance of acidity and sweetness is equally appealing to the palate. So much "fresh" bottled fruit juice is too sweet.
I am still laughing to myself at a recent post in Clare Grant's blog, http://www.threebeautifulthings.blogspot.com/ One of her work colleagues, in response to a request from their employer for ideas on power-saving, suggested: "Switch off the light at the end of the tunnel." Clare's idea to log three beautiful things every day is the inspiration behind my own blog and many others.
