I was so jealous of Cindy at Applestone Cottage (visit her here….)
a couple of weeks ago, with all her beautiful apple trees…we just don’t have any in this part of Colorado….Well, I said something to my hubby and he said he thought one of our neighbors had apple trees – he would call to see. We have some great neighbors about a mile away and my hubby has known the gentleman for quite some time. I have met the gentleman a couple of times and have been on his and his families lovely acreage several times. Anyway, seems the wife (whom I never met) didn’t know who we were, when she spotted my hubby picking apples…APPLE THIEF ! Everything turned out O.K. – we weren’t stealing and the cops were not called….Anyway, turns out the neighbors have the most lovely apple orchard with many types of apples…we just picked a large basketful but, was told that the trees produce about 700 bushels a year….The couple is nicest ever and I am going to get some pictures printed that I have taken of their property and present them to them as a small thank you. Enjoy !
My hubby has been telling me about sunflower fields growing over the hill on the road we live on…..of course they were in full bloom right before me surgery and during recovery….I didn’t get to see them (I thought my hubby was talking about an acre or two – not fields and fields..Take a look – I think they like very sad now but, imagine what they looked like in full bloom in the rolling little hills. I hope they grow them again next year, as I will be there with camera in hand.
I am linking up with Susan for Outdoor Wednesday. Here is her link:
