Evening Walks









We love our family walks around our picturesque farm. The kids are always excited, they wonder what  wild animal they might get to see. Wild turkeys, deer, fox,  coyotes, rabbits-you name it-it passes through the orchard. On this particular walk there was a wild turkey that ran passed us. The orchard remains pretty throughout the seasons. This year was the worst on record for producing fruit. Early in the season it fought frosts, a hail storm, and one of the worst droughts  that this area has ever seen. The Empire trees barely produced but surprisingly,  the Red Delicious did quite well. Fall is near, the colors will change, the apples will fall and the cycle will start again-hopefully next year the trees will produce heavily. Hope you enjoyed this little   peek into our country life.

  2. Hi Melanie - I was just at an apple orchard today and the pickings were very slim. It's going to be an expensive apple pie at Thanksgiving. Love the photos of your walk in the woods. Nice family time.

  6. Beautiful!

    When I was young my father worked in Sarnia, Ontario. Ontario is so big, but I remember him taking us on the little ferries that one drives their car on to get across the water.
