A very popular local farm market to pick or buy apples in the fall as well as many yummy goodies such as pies, jellies, donuts, maple syrup, and more. As a general rule we try to stay away during apple season since it tends to get a little bit of a fair-like atmosphere, which I don’t particularly care for. But as my husband and I drove by almost 2 weeks ago I was struck by all the beautiful trees in bloom. Apple blossoms almost as far as the eye could see!
I found myself there a couple days later to capture the beauty of Applecrest instead of the chaos ; )
From a distance I thought these were apple picking bins. Um . . . I was wrong. They were bee boxes swarming with thousands of honey bee’s! I tried to get a little closer but since we just watched a show on Killer bee’s a few weeks ago I’m still a bit freaked out.
Who says Dandelions can’t be beautiful? The contrast is amazing!
Just think, every blossom you see will be an apple very shortly. That’s a lot of apples!

And . . .
Recently I saw a lone Canadian Goose chillin’ in the middle of a huge field of Dandelions. Wonder if anyone else saw it?
In the birds defense, he was pretty far out in the field. Sometimes I think birding while driving is like texting! Eye’s on the road people!
