Summer Fruit

Last night at twilight, I walked down to the fruit orchard to pick raspberries. As I was walking down the steps I looked up and saw a doe eating our blueberries. I got pretty close to her before she bounded away.

I don't mind a bit sharing our bounty with the local deer. She'll probably be on our dinner table this winter anyway. That's terrible to think about, but true.

I picked this bowl full of raspberries and as many apples as I could carry. The apples are Anna variety. Apples don't do very well down here, but these trees always have apples on them. Now if I can only convince my husband to spray them on time!
