i can't get enough....


there's an apple orchard just down the road from us. 
you can pick all the apples you want or you can just stop by to people watch and eat a cider brat and take home a dozen of their cider cinnamon and sugar doughnuts.





apple trees are little and easy to climb




 the orchard also has pumpkins


darn you fall. do you really have to leave. we've had such a great time with you.

  11. I just love the apple orchard near your home. I wish I had one close. I went to a neighbors last evening to take pictures of her apples and she had picked them all. Now I must search for more. Love the pumpkins too and been loving zinnias at the upick. So I think I must travel to visit the upick farm soon.

  13. Nice picture of you in the apple tree. Are they dwarf apple trees? How many apples did you pick?

  14. Hey, it's not gone yet!..

    My daughter and I went last weekend, and she was a bit annoyed because as always I brought my camera and ended up taking a few pics of families who were there together but obviously struggling to take family shots. So I offered. And daughter rolled her eyes a time or two...

    Nice pics - Especially that DA in the tree. :-)
