The Round-up to MBP: Fruit Fare

First of all, I would like to thank everyone of you who sent in entries to this edition of Monthly Blog Patrolling (MBP) and made it a success. I would also like to apologise to those of you whose entries I took some time to acknowledge. As you know, the reasons were beyond my control.

Now that things are back to being the way they should be, I’m happy to present the round-up with 33 entries. As usual I’m presenting them in no particular order. Most of these entries featuring fruit are either drinks or desserts. So join me on a visual feast of some very “fruity fare”.
