Apples and cherries

We’ve never before had so many apples as there are on our tree this year.  It almost makes up for the poor apricot crop (I can see two fruits on that tree), but I’d much prefer to have apricots instead.  It’s exciting that our small wild cherry tree, planted as a sucker given to us by our neighbour about two and a half years ago, is bearing its first fruit (below, right).

And those irises again, framing some orange poppies:

My apples also have more apples than ever this year but with the drought I am having to water a lot. My cherries are already ripe and I am picking. Love the colour of the iris. Diane
