Here Comes Autumn

It is the end of Syawal of the Muslim's month in the lunar calendar. It is also the changing of season, opening the door to winter.
Here at the place where I lived in Taif, the seasons starts off with the picking of grapes and pomegranates.
Everyday the locals picks up the fruits and sell them to the Capital city.
The small green grapes are dried under the sun to become raisin, which later on becomes filling of local breads. While the bigger shining excellent condition are packed and deliver to the customer around Saudi.
While pomegranate fruits are ruby red with small sizes sparkling ruby color sweet inside. In my home country we use to call it "buah delima". Pomegranates are Iran and Himalayan origin brought by the traders along the silk trade route to Saudi. It is a good source of vitamin C and the Sauds loves it. The pomegranate fruit is usually eaten as salad along with grapes and mayonnaise.
