I was browsing the exotic fruit aisle again in the supermarket this week and these wonderful Cape Gooseberries, or Physalis Peruviana to give them their proper name, took my fancy. I must confess that I still haven’t actually eaten a single one of them, so intent have I been on capturing their astonishing forms and colours with my camera.
The construction of these little jewels is a testament to the miracle of nature, each one wrapped in its’ very own golden cloak, each segment of which is designed to open like wings to reveal the perfect brightly coloured fruit inside.
Here is a small sample of the images I have taken which I shall offer as a candidate for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge ‘Vivid‘, so beautiful are the colours……….
