There is nothing so heartwarming as being given an unexpected gift, especially when that something has been grown by your own fair hands.
I received these today from my Italian Friend Agostino (Ag for short). They are plum tomatoes, he says that they are very sweet and that he has been busy putting the tomatoes up and bottling them.
I think Agostino must be in his late eighties,, but he still keeps fit by seeing to his allotment and bringing on turkeys for Christmas. He was widowed not so long back and the allotment is a way of life to him he goes twice a day. So it was a double blessing, seeing my friend and the gift of the tomatoes.
Its the simple things that mean a lot and speak many words without making a sound.
