THE FRESH FRUIT IN CROATIA WAS DELICIOUS AND THERE WAS PLENTY OF IT, THIS SMALL PRUNE WAS SO SWEET ! PROBABLY BECAUSE THE FRUIT OVER THERE GETS PLENTY OF SUNSHINE; MOST OF THE FRUIT HERE IN BELGIUM IS IMPORTED FROM ABROAD AND PLUCKED WHEN IT IS NOT RIPE, WE OFTEN HAVE TO KEEP IT FOR A FEW DAYS AFTER BUYING IT, COS WHEN WE BUY IT IT IS STIL NOT RIPE ENOUGH TO EAT IT, SO IT NEVER TASTES AS GOOD AS THE FRUIT THEY PLUCK WHEN IT IS READY TO EAT OFCOURSE !
LIKE IN FRANCE THEY HAVE A LOT OF PLATANS, I LOVE THE LOOK OF THAT TRUNK, LOOKS A BIT LIKE A PUZZLE
As I told you before, I always want to go to one or more garden centers whilst on holiday abroad, here are some pictures I took during our visit to a large local garden center. Mind you, it was a bit of a shock to see the prizes, they were huge ! compared to what we pay in Belgium.
FOR THE PRICE OF THIS CONIFER YOU COULD BUY A SMALL CAR !!!!
