Travel theme: Fruit

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 Rome, there were oranges and orange groves galore …

… 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.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    I will show the blossom and some different kind of ripe mango. I look forward to visit my friend on her farm and give her a little help with the harvest the next few days.
