A golden nugget of 2014's Sunshine...

This is the last Crown Prince Squash, harvested in October 2014, and then stored through the Winter and into the Spring, it has spent the Summer being guarded in the porch by the cat, she did a good job no one stole it..
 It was finally starting to go soft - it wanted to release its seedy babies....

The intense burst of orange that's revealed when it's cut open is like getting a glimpse of the previous summers' sunshine. 

A bit like the heat and light you get from burning dry logs - only that's years and years worth of 'pent up summer sun'.
