PERSIMMON HARVEST IS MORE FUN WITH FRIENDS SO SHELLY CAT DECIDED TO TAKE HER MICE FRIENDS, MARV & LOUIS, WITH HER. Marv thought the persimmon slices were yummy, but Louis just wanted to wear the Persimmon calyx as a hat & run around chasing dried Persimmon leaves. Shelly Cat hung a Persimmon calyx on her collar because she liked how it looked like a flower. They all ran around in the late autumn afternoon laughing & being silly. Persimmon madness!
SAN DIEGO AUTUMN FILLS THE LA JOLLA FARMER’S MARKET WITH LOVELY ORANGE PERSIMMONS. Persimmons have a Calyx top, which can be removed & left to dry. The dried calyx look like lovely “wooden” flowers. Persimmons sliced up & put into a spinach salad with dried cranberries make a lovely Autumn salad. In Japan, persimmons are a well-known Autumn subject for paintings. The two Japanese brush paintings here are painted by me. Persimmons an ode to Autumn:
