A few weeks ago I visited the orchard, which is one of my favourite places in my local countryside. It’s always fun to spend a day apple-picking in autumn but now, with spring in full swing, it was simply beautiful. It was a sunny afternoon and everything just felt so alive. There were sweet pink buds on the apple trees and gorgeous white blossoms on the pear trees. I loved walking in between the trees, with delicate petals drifting in the breeze. Oh isn’t spring just so lovely?
