pear tree



We went berry-picking (and mosquito-slapping, and duck- and pig-watching) at Russell Orchards in Ipswich this morning. Blueberries and raspberries - what could be better? The pears weren't ripe yet, but the trees were beautiful.

They run the tractors with biodiesel fuel. They sell homemade doughnuts in their store. My favorite sign near the barn read, "Save the planet: eat cider donuts." So we did what we could to help.


gotta ask....what are cider donuts? (made with apple cider?)

I think so. They were homemade with a spicy apple-y taste. time will you eat one for me too?

I like this one, it looks like there's a little face in the branch.
It sounds like you're having a wonderful time.
