Memories of my youth is speckled with annual trips to the New York state apple orchards with our family.  Mostly I remember using my Dad’s homemade apple picker – was made out of part of a washing machine internal piece.   Weird, huh?   Anyway, on a recent visit to Virginia we stumbled upon this small fairly new apple orchard.  The boys were so excited to pick their own apples, and I to photograph them. . . so here they are sitting in the orchard supplied wagon sorting out their self-picked apples!  (yes, there are a few apples in the wagon – two each, as we couldn’t fly home with too many apples!)

Go visit some more apple orchard memories at I Heart Faces.


Such a beautiful moment to capture!
