Apples and hazelnuts

The nursery specialises in native plants and trees, but they also have a lot of fruit trees, including lots of different varieties of apples. They also grow some full-sized trees so people can see what they're like when they're all grown up.

Happily, our trip coincided with apple season...

A fairy-tale tangle of apple trees

The witch's cottage must be around here somewhere...


One out-of-the-way paddock is full of hazel and chestnut trees. It's shady and mysterious amongst the trees, and Willie and I have nicknamed it "The Witch's Paddock".

There were plenty of hazelnuts on the ground!

We gathered a few pocketfuls :)
