The Old Orchard


My grandfather planted an orchard back in the 1940's and 1950's and some of those trees are still thriving today.  Our food producing trees include apples, pears, peaches, walnuts and feijoas.

 The Apples. 
















The Elderberries.  They grow like weeds around here.   My father absolutely loathes them!


The Pears.



 The bees like to get drunk on the fermenting pears which fall on the ground!








The Walnuts. I love how the leaves of the walnut tree look in the Spring and Autumn when the light shines through them and makes the branches look like stained glass windows.
