Summer Fruits

The dog days of summer are upon us.  While Denmark has been having one of those (in)famously cool and rainy summers, here on the East Coast of the U.S. we've had a sweltering bout of July. A cooler breeze arrived with August, with higher skies and plenty of sun and, as always, the seasons bring their own treasures.
