Beautiful! You've persuaded me to grow raspberries in my allotment :)

There was a dear friend who used to let me pick his raspberries after he had picked. I always felt I was getting away with perishable gold. Beautiful photos and mouth watering!

Your fool is beautiful and the fishnet fingers (um, eww) so cute! Raspberries ARE the perfect berry. You can do anything with them, and they're just as good (if not quite as pretty) frozen as fresh. I wish I had somewhere to grow them! (My favorite raspberry recipe consists of raspberries poached in a bit of white wine and sugar along with crushed cardamom and a cinnamon stick. Goes with ice cream or cakes or custard or, you know, pretty much anything.)

Hi Bron! Wow, this sounds like a lucious, but light affair! The scorched lady fingers are a beautiful accompaniment!

I love the idea of having raspberries growing outside the kitchen window... I may have to transplant some of our raspberry canes a bit closer this year - when (or if?) spring ever arrives in our side of the world!

Your photos are really amazing! I love rhubarb fool too! There's really nothing quite like it.

Hi Bron! This is my first visit, and your site is heavenly.

I agree with you about raspberries--they enliven so many dishes and are delicious in any form.

Thanks for the refreshing dessert; I'll be making it when raspberries arrive at the farmers' market.

Bron - It all looks too good to eat.

Lucky you to have raspberries growing by your window kitchen. Ours are not really growing well this year. John kept mistakenly cut them as he cut the grass around the patches in the garden. That dessert looks real yum!!

I've been coming back to this post several times over the last few days (in my RSS reader) and being envious of the summer you are obviously enjoying. It is dull and rainy here in the UK and these delicious pictures are making me hanker after warmer weather and fresh fruit like something rotten!

I treasure each raspberry my bushes produce. Though our season isn't for another six months. I get enough from my bushes to produce over 50 jars of raspberry jam each summer--enough to get us through a whole year.

Beautiful lighting on your photographs

Gorgeous summer treat. I love fresh raspberries. I can eat them and not stop until my belly hurts...make it hurt!!!

What glorious photos! And I plan to make some sort of fool this summer. It sounds (as you say) sensuous and decadent and retro and fabulous. And I love your scorched ladyfingers!!
