I got a Persimmon....

A gift from a guy who grew some in his garden this year.... he must have brought them inside a while ago...becuz.... it snowed last week...and again today a bit more...so, I doubt they are still attached to anything outside.... ..










I've never had one before.... hmmm...second confession in as many days...hahahha... oh, well.... perhaps in some respects I've lived a sheltered life... or, maybe I've just been too cheap to bother with them at the grocery store... I assure you... ya can't fool me with much.













Orange is a colour that I don't usually care for.....but this is not really orange...it's.... ...well, it's Persimmon isn't it?!

Poor little Gerber...looks like he feels a bit uncomfortable holding somebody's head......

Same pattern.... different fabric... stuffed softer too...and yet... looks a bit larger .... perfect. I like the heads of baby-type bears to be larger..... although with the tiny "test eyes" (and a test eye for the nose too) he is not quite as baby like... just wanted to post a pic of the persimmon and the fabric...... nothing is set yet.......

I've never had a persimmon either. Your new little bear is adorable :) Are you going to name him Percy for persimmon? :)

How marvellous to see a new bear taking shape. So, what does the persimmon taste like?! You've got me wondering!

You got a persimmon? Oh, yeah, well, I got a pomegranate! So there, LOL!!! Just kidding, I don't really it just sounded fun to say! I have only had a slice of persimmon once, but it was under another dish of some sort...it was like a garnish on some gourmet plate from some fancy shmancy restaurant in La Jolla. It was kinda spicy as I recall...I don't rightly know as it could've been from whatever it was under, LOL!
