    I think you like persimmons very much, AshiAkira 🙂 You know, in Romania we don’t have persimmons. We have to import them

    • AshiAkira says:

      Yes, they are so sweet. Persimmons are just about the only fruit that grow almost naturally around here. Thus I have the memory of making hunting trips for them when I was a kid and had no money. 🙂

  2. I’m going to look for these in the supermarket as I’m sure I’ve seen them but never tasted one. They wouldn’t be a native fruit of Ireland.

    • AshiAkira says:

      They are very oriental and regional, and I’m not sure you can find them there as they are easily perishable. There are variety of kinds of them different from each other in shapes, taste, softness or hardness, etc. Most of them are very sweet, but some kinds taste bitter and astringent. But they turn very sweet when dried in the sun. They can grow easily here and many houses in local areas have them planted in their yards, but I seldom see them in Tokyo any more. 🙂

  3. Birds can make us look very stupid. they know just where to look, and when, for what they need.

    Beautiful. I SOMEHOW have been missing your posts…

  5. I imagine persimmons are red? I’ve never had one.
    But crows I know. It’s the only sound in our winter forest now.
    Well, that and the chirp of busy squirrels!

      There are variety of persimmons, and some of them are red when they are ripe. Others are mostly reddish yellow.
      I imagine it would be nice to go out there now… in down jackets with big hood and long boots… of course. Must be so quiet in the woods.
