today i zipped out on my bike to the post office, stopping to stick my face in the honeysuckle hedge of course (see last post), to send out another package. it was such a beautiful day that a wee detour was needed so i buzzed up to little india. i love it there, all the saris and spices. as i turned the corner BOOM! there they were. cases and cases of beautiful ripe fragrant mangoes. mexican mangoes, indian mangoes, ecuadorian mangoes and a new pale yellow type i’ve never seen before. they were so ripe and so cheap how could i not pick up a case? or 2? mango flesh is the most perfect intense orange colour in the world. now i must make an orange necklace (as well as a lot of chutney). stay tuned.
