Time flies, soon you will pick apples again.
Happy Weekend from Cyprus 😀
Thank you very much. Yes, they will be back with us very soon. Thanks for commenting. Cheers.
Always nice to see the Okanagan orchards. Happy Saturday Lynette. Allan
Agreed. We came across this one while out for a ramble. Thanks, Allan.
An apple I have not heard of before but it certainly grows in a lovely orchard. Welcome warmth on this snowy day in New England.
Hi Steve, I think these might be macintosh apples but I’m not completely sure. The Okanagan is the name of a valley in the interior of British Columbia (that’s where my home is but I work in the north where the winter photos come from). Here’s a website; maybe you would like to visit some time. https://www.hellobc.com/places-to-go/okanagan-valley/
I haven’t been to New England in about 15 years now (I used to visit Connecticut regularly as I had close friends there), but I always liked it very much; so beautiful. Cheers.
Apples are my favorite fruit. This photo is wonderful. And now I’m hungry…
I think these are macintosh apples. I really like those although there are so many forgotten varieties that are beginning to make a comeback. There’s a variety in the Okanagan called “mutzos” that are very crisp and sweet-tart, but not very attractive looking. They almost disappeared because it was thought they wouldn’t do well in grocery stores. They’re now returning which is so great.
Soon, yes. But hurry!
Yes! I can’t wait, either!
Yes we will! I love apples 🙂
For sure! But as Anneli commented, “hurry!” There’s something exquisite about biting into a crisp, juicy apple and having that fresh, tart-sweet flavour flow through your system!
Something to look forward to! Summer will be here before we know it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Linda
Agreed; although this year it just seems slow to me. Of course, it will be late April before I’m snowless here in the north, so I have a while to go anyway!
Such an amazing photo! I bought green apples at the store last week, and I’m very much craving spring and summer.
Thank you very much. 🙂 I like those a lot. It’s so nice to have the very fresh ones. Oh yes, definitely craving spring and summer!
Magical apple orchard!
Haha. 🙂 Yes, indeed. But no witches or choking hazards. 😉
