Ooh, there’s a distinct nip in the air and harvest time is drawing close up here in the northern hemisphere. Everywhere I turn tree branches are bowed low under the weight of their fruit, which has inspired me to go looking for fruit-filled photos from my travels, like this peach orchard in eastern Washington…
… neatly arranged berries at a Californian farmers’ market…
… and these wooden apple crates lining the roads through Methow Valley’s apple orchards.
… in Guatemala coffee cherries ripened around future coffee beans…
… and in Ireland sloes dripped heavy from the hedgerows, just waiting to be made into sloe gin.
So how do you like them apples (and oranges and sloes)? If you’re feeling peachy and would like to cherry-pick some photos to create your own interpretation of this week’s theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Fruit
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit. – Khalil Gibran
One is wise to cultivate the tree that bears fruit in our soul. – Henry David Thoreau
