Apple time !!

It certainly lifts one's spirits to drive through the Adelaide Hills (aka Mt. Lofty Ranges) with the car windows down and take in the delicious aroma of the apples ripening in the sunshine. This picture shows Pink Lady apples almost ready to pick. They are at their best in April.
Look closely (bottom left of picture) and you can see the white plastic sheeting placed between the rows  to reflect the sunlight up into the trees so that they redden up before harvesting.

         Happy Easter every one
