Apple Harvest

At the beginning of the month we finally picked the apples from our tree.

The chap from next door came in September assured us they were cooking apples, and helped himself to a bucketful. We tried one too but the pips were still white. Having been told that apples weren't ready util the pips turned brown we waited, and waited and waited.... until finally at the beginning of November, just when we'd decided to pick them regardless, they were ready.

Turns out they are very tasty eating apples too, not the cookers our neighbour claimed.

It was a gorgeous morning the fruit was, as you can see, dripping from the overnight rain.  So I took a snap of the field too.

The trees are now bereft of their leaves but how pretty it looked just a couple of weeks ago.
