Here in London we have the beginning of autumn colours, but the weather is already winter…  I guess the southern Europe is still in sunshine and people are harvesting for a few more weeks.  In Japan there is a saying ‘sky is high and horse will grow fat in autumn’ and in fact I was always gaining some weight in autumn, after the air cools down and my appetite came back.

These illustrated vegetables are dynamic and thankful.

ロンドンは木々が色づき始めたばかりなのに、ここ数日はすでに冬みたいなどんよりした暗さと雨風です。まだきっと南ヨーロッパでは気持ちの良い日射しの中で収穫が続いているのだろうなぁ。ひと昔前までは、今は冬を乗り切る保存食作りに忙しかった時期だと思います。日本にいた頃は、秋には急に食欲が出て、夏に失った体重をとり戻していた記憶が、、。

サンマリノ発行のこの2枚には、そんな季節の勢いが描かれていて食欲をそそられる感じがあります。
