Makes me think of Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard by Eleanor Farjeon. My Egremont russets are nearly ready for picking too.

So nice to see Sappho quoted on your weblog! We ate our first Discovery apples at the cottage last week and they were good. Just a quick visit as I'm about to head off to Russia ...

Have a good trip, DP!
By the way, have you come across these 'local' people? http://plantsandapples.co.uk/

I love those!

Dark Puss

No I haven't and thank you for the link. P x

You've prompted me to find a red apple to plant beside my red gate (been meaning to do it for years) and your link to Appleman above shows the reddest apple I've seen, and he's Scottish - important for hardiness. How brilliant is that! Thank you Karen. The photographs are beautiful.

Mr Cornflower

Cornflower's mother (aka Granny) was picking apples from one of these trees twenty five autumns ago when we told her that our first child, who is now the cherished and wonderful Alice, would be born the following spring. Another moment of joy.

What a lovely surprise! to see our apple trees in your
column - I didn't know you had taken pictures of them on Saturday. Delighted we have a good crop this year after quite a few very poor years.Lovely to
have had the whole family here on the week-end.

Lucky you (in so many ways) and lovely to see your fruit. Very best wishes from Peter in London (and his infamous cat).
