Field Trip to the Orchard

After yesterday’s fail, I sat down with my cup of peppermint tea and focused on writing about our trip to the orchard this past weekend.  We used to make a family trip every fall when ~T~ was a boy to pick our own apples or pumpkins.  Last Saturday’s trip brought back lots of fun memories.

Our local orchard has it all.  Something for everyone.     🙂

I’ll have a few more photos on the Photo Blog soon.

I wouldn’t let myself read blogs or comments until this post was finished.  See.  I can focus.  🙂  I’m off to do my blog walk now.

Have a great day!

  1. Awesome! I can bet that this outing will stand fast in the memory books. The images are great …. I could almost smell all those freshly picked apples. Fall holds some wonderful treasures. Thanks for sharing Janet 🙂

  2. Fun! It’s so wet here no one’s out picking anything. One of my friends just told me all their tomato plants which were loaded with tomatoes were ruined by some kind of blight caused by our crazy weather! And it’s still raining!
