With so much to do before going to Maine for the weekend I was keeping the doggies waiting for their walk. Every time I got up from my seat they would run for the door. I finally gave in and I was not sorry. The weather is fantastic - cool, sunny and breezy. We walked up the hill diverting through the apple orchard. Apples are already starting to drop from the boughs, giving the sheep and goats the snacks they desire. I still harbor visions of a rejuvenated orchard, thinned out so the sun can get inside, with trees pruned in the fall. In the meantime there is a shady wonderland inside.
