Twistin’ time is here

Come on, let’s twist again like we did last summer
Yeah, let’s twist again like we did last year
Do you remember when things were really hummin’?
Yeah, let’s twist again, twistin’ time is here

Ee, a round and round and up and down we go again
Oh, baby make me know you love me so and then
Twist again like we did last summer
Come on, let’s twist again
Like we did last year
Twist, yo

    1. The first ones will be apples almost for sure. I’d say the ones being irrigated are cherries or apricots due to the way they’re pruned and also because their buds are at risk when it’s cold (we’re still in winter) and they’re sprayed with water for protection. They’re probably cherries, I’m unsure that apricots are in need of such protection.

    1. Hi Mike! Thanks. The first shots are bound to be apple trees. The orchard with water sprinklers is apricots or cherries. My main clue is from the way they’re pruned and to some extent the colour of the branches. Secondly, bulk crops in this area are generally apples, apricots or cherries. I’m not sure I can tell apricot from cherry trees at this time of year πŸ™‚

      1. I grew up in the suburbs of a large city, so country life is utterly foreign to me. Telling fruit trees apart is a challenge–I consider myself to be lucky to distinguish a cow from a sheep. πŸ™‚
