While daughter H. and her husband B.C. were visiting, we four went together to our favorite apple farm to shop.
They now have a poster up, showing some of the varieties they grow. Every few weeks the selection changes as different apples get ripe. And there are many more kinds than are shown here. If you like apples, click on the picture to see them and their names more clearly.
Some Bad Apples are getting sorted further, by what criteria I don't know.
One of the family, a retired cowboy, makes bowls out of his used rope. I brought home a couple of those, too!
Later in the day I went for a walk with H. and B.C. along a road where our family used to take quiet and simple nature walks.
The first thing that caught our eye was this snake by the side of the road. We didn't know his name.
There was a pony, but we had no carrots or anything along, so H. picked some leaves for him to try out.
Our favorite sight on the way was a dark barn, behind a white fence. Probably an old chicken barn, of which there are scores around here.
On the way home B.C. took us for a gelato snack. These are the colorful fruity flavors, but I chose chocolate orange.
The gelato store has an amazing candy collection, too, including these M&M's, the likes of which I hadn't seen before. We passed on those.
