An afternoon in The Orchard

A lazy afternoon spent in the dwindling sunshine of mid October. Apples and history holds on to the branches of burdened, sighing trees. I might have picked one to relieve the tension slightly, but an apple volunteered and let go. I read a poem instead. Whispers of families, friends and lovers hardly interrupt the silence, only the mesmerising flutter of the butterflies distract.

Tea for two with fluffy scones smeared in red. Clotting cream makes it go down easier.
