Outdoor Daily

The apple blossom in our orchard is a wonderful time. Today, it is just beginning: buds of early varieties in full bloom, others opening, later ones still tight.

But I close my eyes and memories of past seasons bring hope for good things to come once more: crunchy and sweet Bardsey Island, aromatic Laxton Permain and Ashmed Kernel, delicious juice pressed from Gascoine’s Scarlet Seedling and Quarrenden Red, apple pies from Alfreston and Bramley.

Wenn ich wüsste, dass morgen die Welt unterginge, wurde ich heute noch ein Apfelbäumchen pflanzen” Martin Luther

{“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would end, I would still plant an apple tree today“}
