Apples and Pears

Early autumn in Central Otago; we drove to Roxburgh yesterday, finding a beautiful apple orchard at Ettrick and a pear orchard at Millers Flat. New Zealand. 19 March.

  1. These beautiful photos have caused my longing for a fresh picked apple and/or a pear from the trees! How strange it is to consider that today, March 20th, is our First Day of Spring whilst for you it is early Autumn! Our fruit trees have yet to show the buds of their leaves and yours are laden with enticing fruit. “A seed hidden in the heart of an apple is an orchard invisible.” – Welsh Proverb. Thank-you!

      1. I like NZ apples a lot – we even have a little Braeburn tree here and it produces a lot of apples for its size. But it does feel odd to me to see the fruit. Mine is getting ready to flower.
