Mirabelles et myrtilles



Fruit stall inside Notre-Dame covered market. On Saturday, I bought these blueberries and mirabelle plums from Lorraine. Deeeelicious!
Samedi, je me suis laissée aller à ces douceurs aux Halles Notre-Dame...

I love the colour of those plums! And my husband loves blueberries even more than I do.

Good choice Ciel, what a fantastic array of summer fruits, makes a beautiful image.

Randy said...

All that's missing is the ice cream for these beautiful toppings.

Woody said...

The last blog I visited had ice cream :-)

Those blueberries look gigantic and how I love them! I don't recall that variety of plum, but I'll be on the lookout.

Bob Crowe said...

I wonder if the fruit tastes different from ours. It's peak season for local produce here. I'm sure there will be a few tasty bits left by the time we get to France. Sixteen more days.

Wow! Ciel, this is just one of the best photos I have seen. Love those blueberries, so fat and ripe, and the fruit stand is simply fantastic. I remember those outdoor fruit stands so well, and wish I were there now to sample some of this wonderful fruit. Just the very best, isn't it?

Everything looks delicious and I know tastes delicious too.

tu nous as fait une petite tarte ?
tu es trop gentille

Cergie said...

AH ! Que ma Lorraine me manque ! Mon mirabellier ne va pas me donner une seule mirabelle cette année et mon pied de myrtillier (des bluets en réalité) a dépéri car ne supporte pas le calcaire !

Dave said...

A great range of colour. I love markets for this reason .....and the food of course.

Francisca said...

Those blueberries look HUGE! Where they sweet?

Malyss said...

ce ne sont pas des fruits, mais des tartes en puissance!(surement des kilos aussi, mais passons..)Belles couleurs d'été!

VP said...

I really like all your fruits, but at thgis time of the day I am already concentrating on a big slice of pizza!

Blueberries are my favorite.

Julie and I were at the Getty Center in Los Angeles yesterday, and they are finishing a special exhibition titled "Paris: Life and Luxury." It is a collection of paintings, furniture and decorative arts, mostly from the 1700's, from various museum collections. It was extremely popular. If fact, too popular and too crowded.

Of course you can see Versailles any day you want,

De belles varietes de fruits presentes avec amour.

Doug Hickok said...

To go shopping in Paris, at the Notre-Dame market for beautiful fresh fruit... ah, you live the good life indeed :^)

brattcat said...

Mmmmm...I hope you will bring some of these delectable beauties to the virtual picnic!

Birdman said...

You've got my mouth to watering. mmmmmmm

Halcyon said...

I bought some greengages last week, but they weren't as tasty as they looked! Your choices look very good though... hope they taste that way too. :)

Jacob said...

I cannot tell you how good this all looks. We simply cannot get good fruit in our stores. Everything tastes like cardboard! Very frustrating!

cieldequimper said...

@ all: good fruit like this costs and arm and a leg. And yes, they tasted divine.

@ Doug: this is Versailles Daily Photo :-) so this is Versailles covered market!

Oh YUM!!! I love yellow plums and of course Blueberries. Ours are just ripening in the garden. In fact just had some, from last year, on my morning cereal. MB

Rob and Mandy said...

Ca fait des belles et bonnes tartes, tout ca! Delicieux, un regal pour les yeux.

Loree said...

Those would make such a wonderful fruit salad - topped with fresh cream. Mmmm :)

Cezar and Léia said...

I think I'll go for the blueberries!
God bless you!

It all looks delicious! Always nice to buy fresh, in season fruit. Haven't had mirabelle plums in a long time. Have a lovely week. Mickie :)

JM said...

These look fantastic! Perfect on a hot day like this.

EG Wow said...

The fruit there looks so juicy and sweet. I bet you took bags full of it home.

Sharon said...

MMMM...so luscious and colorful. Very pretty shots, Ciel.

I am so very jealous! I have yet to stop by one of the several fruit stands that I pass on my way home from work EVERY DAY. What is my problem anyway? I should do that tonight. Mmm.....fresh peaches. :)
