Apples, hornets and apple pie……….

The strange weather conditions of this year have left the orchard looking bedraggled and bewildered.  The spring cherries were waterlogged and the Maytime plums annihilated by hailstorms, now the apples, usually so abundant and wholesome, are rain-damaged and fast being eaten by wasps and hornets.  There is , as always a silver lining for someone.  The dogs between them have already consumed sufficient windfalls to make apple tarts enough to feed an army.  Although I was vainly hoping to find enough amongst the dwindling remainder to make one ‘tarte aux pommes’  I did at least find enough to take a few photos before all is lost for another year……….

    1. The golden apples are apparently ‘Canada’ and we haven’t the faintest clue as to the identity of the others – I could always bring them in for questioning I suppose 😎 give them a good grilling 😕
