Peaches, pears and plums

The time has come to start picking our fruit. And boy do we have alot! We've been really blessed this year with the birds and possums staying away however we weren't expecting THIS much fruit. We were also pleasantly surprised to find a pear tree in amongst the old orchard. I had no idea it was there until I saw the fruit. And they are soooo tasty! I'm off to Mudgee today to pick up some ingredients to start cooking. Saffron Pears is first on the list.....Yummy!

The best part is having the girls help out. They've waited very patiently to start picking and eating the fruit. It's so lovely to see them enjoying the simple blessings that we have. And carrying their little buckets is cute to boot! Below is a portion of yesterdays bounty....

Loving the colours and the smells! 

Me thinks I'll be doing some still life paintings :)
