I finally got around to mowing the paths in the back section of our property affectionately known to us and our kids as the hundred acre woods (three would actually be closer to the mark, but who's counting?) When I went back on foot to admire my handiwork, I conveniently just happened to have Finnigan and my camera with me.
We then went down to the bottom of our property to investigate our derelict apple orchard. It looks great when you blur it out like I did in this photo! Finny looked pretty good too (and didn't need to be blurred out), though he was getting very thirsty at this point and ready to head back inside.
On the subject of apple trees, there was an old apple tree in our back yard that was at the end of its days and died shortly after we moved in years ago. I cut the dead tree down, but there were a few sprouts on the trunk so I left it in place. This is a photo of some of the blossoms one of those little sprouts is now producing.
