Texas Ruby Reds Rio Stars

As you may recall,
I am in love with the Texas Ruby Red Grapefruit.

We enjoy one almost every morning
with our breakfast.
The season is rapidly coming to a close,
so I am savoring our last few.
They are the sweetest and juiciest right about now.

The upcoming Art Beyond the Surface challenge involves
So, I am using my beloved grapefruit.

Carving stamps is one of my favorite pastimes.
I find it extremely meditative and relaxing.

I'll keep you posted on how this all turns out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Peace to you and yours.

Please note, it came to my attention last night while discussing Texas Grapefruit with Deanna, that I was misstating my favorite brand - they are indeed Rio Stars.  I apologize to the entire great state of Texas and to the grapefruit growers in particular for my error.  I do love my Rio Stars!

Lovely stamp, beautiful prints, Judy. I just know you'll make something wonderful from them. What a glorious colour your Texas grapefruit is, I don't think we have that one here. I rarely eat grapefruit, just because I don't Notice them in the shops, but whenever I see them in a hotel breakfast I always eat and enjoy them. Happy Easter my dear Judy! 💝💝💝

Love your stamp! Is it carved from wood? If so, you're a lot more ambitious than I am... beautiful! I can't eat grapefruit, but the ones in your photo are beautiful... enjoy!
