Yesterday there were icy hail stones falling from the sky in London. It was a chilly November day with wintry weather that is far from the sunshine I have just come back from.
I was visiting son No. 3 who lives in Raanana, a town about half an hour away from Tel Aviv. The garden is full of fruit trees. In summer there are lychees, mangoes and kumquats, but at this time of year, they can pick pomelo, clementines, lemons and star fruit. The persimmons - called sharon fruit in UK - are the sweetest of all, with a pleasing texture and fragrant flesh.
We ate outside, drinking coffee on a terrace overlooking the trees and the blue sky.
