The Big Apple

Apple sculpture at Finsbury Avenue Square

An aborted attempt to see some Chelsea Fringe gardens at Broadgate Circle near Liverpool Street revealed some unexpected delights instead.

I’ve also seen examples of Tom Hare’s work at Wisley. If you go there look out for the kohl rabi 🙂

Russet Apples and boxes of oranges complete with leaves at our local farm shop: just how I remember them from my childhood.

A few years ago we visited the orchard in Somerset where these apples have come from (Charlton) on our way back from a November holiday in Cornwall. It was a magical place and they grow a wide variety of heritage apples. I tried Gloster69 and Orleans Reinette for the first time: they were wonderful.
