Hand picked







The apricot tree is on the cusp of being ready to harvest.
We got up today and picked a few ripe ones, but most of the fruit is a few days away.
I found this lovely piece of apricot coloured crochet trim which seemed perfect for keeping the hair out of my face while picking.
Oh the apricots are so yummy!!!!

love V

  7. It looks so idyllic! I'm sat in a freezing victorian attic, kept warm by a condemed heated, looking over the greyness of High Wycombe. Such a lovely dress!

  16. Red and white is always such a cute combination, the more when it's combined with this nice apricot coloured headband. Hugs from Germany!

  17. Would I be correct in guessing the apricots are Moorpark? Though they are perhaps too good looking and uncracked. Oh how I wish my orchard job allowed me to dress up as you do!
