Preserving time


The colour is still vibrant but the jars are oh so old.

My sister in law Marilyn found these under her old unit
in Bondi in a brown box amongst all the coal supply
when the plumbing was being redone .

It's a very o l d  flat.

How old they are, who knows but they do look incredibly 
fresh particularly the peas and how
delightful to bottle peas.
Can you imagine doing this now?
Bottling peas.

It does make you think about how much we waste food
these days and to bottle peas would be far
removed from our minds.

The temptation to open them
and to know if they are still eatable.

but I rather like the idea of
the green peas just sitting on a shelf.
