Ruby Red Radishes

I spent part of last Summer in France
staying at my daughters
and being entertained by my delightful grandies.

As in most families one of our weekly outings
was to visit the local supermarché.

The displays of vegetables were so tempting

I couldn't resist a photo or two!

I'm linking to Ruby Tuesday

Thank you for hosting.

Take care and
be kind to one another

à bientôt



  1. Loved the colourful bunches of radish, I've just painted some,They are so popular in France, even offered with a dish of butter to have with aperitifs. I bought some at the weekend, and it's amazing how different the taste is at different times of the year, the early ones always seem to be best, nice and mild and on the sweet side . hope you have a good week, and being able to enjoy your lovely summer. I'm sure your roses are blooming beautifully.

  2. Thanks for taking me back to France, Shane! The markets were such a lovley outing, and the vegetables and breads were always so fresh.

  3. Seeing those French breakfast radishes displayed so beautifully in the basket really does take us along with you to France. Thanks for this pleasant virtual journey, Shane. xo

  4. Ooh, I love radishes. I even grow them in the summer. They are so quick and easy. Roll on summer.

  5. Oh Oh Oh how gorgeous they are dear Shane
    Your photo makes me want to butter some french bread and dip some ruby red radishes in coarse sea salt as a treat...washed down by a bit of bubbly Oui Oui.
    I bet I've already told you that Mr Magpie is taking me to France this spring. A dream come true to spend April in Paris with my sweethe♥rt. So much has surely changed since I was there so many years ago...can't wait to explore.
    p.s. we share the same anniversary date I believe ... 11 April and when I think of France I always think of vous ;-)

  6. Was für ein herrliches Bild mit diesen leckeren Radieschen.
    Ich liebe Radieschen, und ich könnte sie jeden Tag essen.
    Leider hat man ihnen hier die Schärfe weggezüchtet.
    Ich bekomme sie nur noch ganz natürlich im Bioladen oder wenn ich sie selbst aussäe.
    Baguette, Butter, Käse, Radieschen und ein Glas Wein... was will man mehr.
    Du kannst dich glücklich schätzen immer wieder nach Frankreich zu deiner Tochter zu reisen. Ich war leider noch nie in Frankreich, außer vor vielen Jahren ein paar Tage in Paris.

    Ganz liebe Grüße und schöne Tage
    wünscht dir Sophie

  7. A bouquet of radishes! How pretty!

  8. Aah, yes , the French do love their radishes!! My family there always set out a bowl of them along with butter and sel gris during aperitif time:)

  9. The radishes look very good. I use them in my salads. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  13. I love red radishes, especially sliced in salads with other crudités, such as we use in Liguria ... we eat even their leaves !
    You make me feel want of Spring ....

    hoping your day is filled with many small things that fill your heart

  14. Dear Shane,

    Oh aren't the markets wonderful in France - everything always looks so fresh and tempting - the radishes look so good.
    You must enjoy staying with your family very much.

  15. I love farmer's markets - the displays of produce are always so enticing and I have to make myself resist buying a bag of everything I see.
