When I reviewed the photos I took, I knew immediately I wanted to share them here. So here I am, back again, after my dramatic declaration, only a few days ago that I would be blogging no longer. I began blogging without an audience - and with no idea about the blogging community out there, so just because all the fanfare has died down, doesn't really mean I should quit. It really is a personal diary of sorts. Just a public personal one. Taking Georgina's advice, I'll just blog when I feel like it (which is what I do anyway), maybe aiming for once a month or so ... more or less! Maybe sometimes only a couple of times a year.
Anyways, we went apple picking at Pine Crest Orchard, where we filled our baskets with jonathons (which as they don't survive well in cold storage, you are unlikely to find in your supermarket anymore) and quinces. We arrived early - not too long after it opened and by the time we left, round 11ish, the place was packed. So if you head up, then definitely get there early. Afterwards we went straight to the Botanic Gardens for a picnic and an explore. So much wonder and love for those gardens, AMAZING! I'll definitely head back come spring to see all the bulbs.
ps in photo two that's Iris with my mum. In the photo with The Bower, Nora and Iris are pictured with their bisabuela, who they call sisa.
