blue skies & apple trees

I hope everyone has had or is enjoying a wonderful weekend? Ours was 
another busy one ~ moving our son & his girlfriend into their new home & 
celebrating my hubby's birthday yesterday. 

 After a very, very casual family lunch (we were so tired from the move), we headed 
into the backyard for a game of family cricket. We've been lucky to be enjoying some 
mild summer weather lately - perfect mid 20° temperatures & beautiful blue skies...

Our apple trees are fruiting... we have pink ladies & a gorgeous old crab-apple.

 The crab-apple is laden with fruit. Some years I make crab-apple jelly 
but if anyone else has a different recipe I would love to hear from you?

 Till next time...


  1. Kerry,
    so much fun! Our orchards are covered in cold with a skiff of snow on the ground. We have many acres of apples. It is so fun to see apples growing in another part of the world while ours are still dormant...if you get a chance to look at my blog, I posted some pictures of what the orchards around our house look like. I hope you enjoy your trees as much as we do ours! I wish I could picnic in the trees about now where you live!
    Hearts to you,

  2. Hi Kerry! So great to hear from you! I was just thinking about you last night, but didn't get a chance to connect! Happy New Year! Hope yours will be fabulous! Love your always! Gotta go check the shop! Looked at all your tabs up there. Your art is so lovely!! And of course, you know I love your tags!! And you...just too cute! You sparkle gal! I'm not surprised! It comes through in your creations!!

    Hugs to you!

  3. What a lush-looking tree! Sorry that I can't help you with a crab-apple jelly recipe, but I did enjoy looking at your lovely photos!

    I'm glad that the move went well. Belated Happy Birthday to your husband!
