Apples & Pears

Apples and pears fresh from the trees! A huge basket filled with apples and pears was a gift from a good friend. How sweet, juicy and tasty they were. Lucky those who can harvest their own fruits and vegetables!

Autumn is the heavy-handed season in the garden. All the trees and bushes need their winter cuts. The colorful dresses will fall down and white jackets from the winter cloakroom will soon coat the trees. Raindrops will change into frozen pearls.
