Autumn colours



I know Luciano for some years, he is the one that gives me summer fruits to make all my jams. he works from April to September here nearby, and the in the Autumn/Winter
he goes around selling chestnuts, roasted chestnuts.
one of the last times we met I made acquaintance with one of his friends, a farmer
named Matteo.
Matteo has some old fruit trees in his garden, and he was so nice that he pick some
of them and made my a surprise.
12kg of quince
12 kg of persimmon (sharon fruit or cachi)
4kg of jujube (does anyone know them? they are delicious)
3kg of chestnuts (well, they came from Luciano :DDD )

so beautiful autumn colours I decided to make a centerpiece for  lunch that very day!
