I was going to post this image later this week but changed my mind when I watched the UK weather forecast this morning. The forecaster used the words: ‘dank’; ‘bleak’; ‘dull’; and ‘drab’ amongst other grey, dreary sounding adjectives to describe the weather this coming week. I therefore felt the need for a bright, cheery image to start the dismal-sounding weather week!
I photographed these rosy apples yesterday whilst on my morning walk. A kind resident had left them outside with a sign telling passers-by to help themselves. They looked beautiful and ripe for the taking – and photographing 😉 It coincided with yesterday being ‘Apple Day’ – a day which celebrates local UK orchards. I don’t think I’ve heard of Apple Day before – at least it hadn’t registered on my consciousness previously; strange the things we miss sometimes.
Anyway, I chose the one in the top right corner – with the stalk attached – but haven’t eaten it yet 🙂
