Just for the pure JOY of snapping pictures,
I planned a photoshoot in my sister's orchard.
Since I was driving I could take props and play a bit.
Originally this was our grandfather's apple orchard.
Then it became our aunt and uncles orchard.
And then finally my sister has held onto 2 acres,
but she is thinking of selling; so I am very happy I took
the adventure to take pictures and bring home
a box of Gravenstein apples from the orchard.
How fun to have one more time to play in the orchard
and walk the dusty trail under the trees.
I brought my teapot and cups to meld
two loves, apples and tea time.
Teatime was indeed enjoyed under the apple tree
and now there is applesauce in the cupboard
and a couple pie fillings in the freezer.
The tea in my cup that very day was Castleton Moonlight Imperial Darjeeling, First Flush 2017.
It was the perfect tea to sip while enjoying tea in the orchard.
