Fun in the Orchard

Keeping on top of the gardening is a job I don't do well. Keeping on top of the flower beds, the veg plots, grass cutting with 2 children and a bunch of other weekly jobs is just about impossible.

We forget about the poor orchard. It is across the road, through a little wooden gate and up a teeny path. When we bought our house 4 years ago, we weren't told it came with an orchard until we signed on the dotted line. It was a nice surprise - full of fruit trees such as pear, quince, cherries, plums, figs, grapes etc
We spent some time over in the orchard at the weekend, picking fruit and tidying up and made time for a little play too. Sam running through the 'long' grass and Bella - well, Bella trying to eat the grass as usual! Must go over there more often. x
