Autumn Fruits


I've mentioned before that the Walla Walla Valley is a farming community. This is just one example of that: an orchard. The drive along the highway between Milton-Freewater and Walla Walla is littered with orchards - pears, peaches, cherries, apples, and more. I'm not sure what fruit these trees bear in early fall, but they are bearing a beautiful fruit in November; the beautiful colours caught my eye while on a drive in the countryside.

Greetings from Juneau (Alaska) Daily Photo!
I remember as a child, when we lived in Oregon, we had an orchard on our ranch. It was nice having fresh fruit.
Have a great Saturday!

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your comments.

This is gorgeous! What you may lack in colorful birds, you more than make up with in fall color. That's something we don't get! I do miss that.

I noticed this orchard (or similar one) when we were up there a couple weeks ago and thought it would make a good picture. Of course, then it was green, but it's even prettier now.

I wish the changing of the leaf colors would last longer than just a couple of weeks. There are so many beautiful colors in the fall season, but they seem to disappear so quickly.
