Our orchard

I've been meaning to count the trees in our orchard since we moved here back in September. At a glance I thought there were probably about twenty, but we decided to map them today and write down the ones we remembered from the tail end of last season. It turns out to our surprise that there are no less than 42! These include many different types of apples, at least five different pears, cherries, plums, greengages, a medlar, a quince, some crab apples, and a rowan. I can't wait to see them in spring and summer as they were already nearing the end of the season when we first saw them last year.
