On the road again....

Yesterday I went for a little drive....the above road is high above the Wabash River. It is what I see before I approach the Coffing Brothers Orchard. As always, I remind you to click on the pictures to enlarge them and get the full effect. I am always amazed at how much more I will like a picture after it is opened up.
I do not know the details of the orchard...we ran across it a few years ago on one of our rambling drives. I was totally in awe of it....someone told me there were about 400 acres in apple trees. At one time when I was taking pictures, one of the family stopped and my husband talked with him. I don't recall if he is who told us that or if it was someone else. I try to make up there every spring in hopes of catching it all in bloom at one time but so far that hasn't happened. It is a rare occurrence for all the varieties of apples to be in bloom at the same time.
There is no place to get a good picture of the whole view...it is just amazing. Acres and acres of apple trees on gently rolling hills. It is one sight I never get tired of seeing. It is at least a 40 minute drive from me, and I seem to be drawn up there just to see it at least 3 or 4 times a year.

I bet that is an amazing sight. I can remember my mother talking about seeing the apple trees when she traveled that way.

I can well imagine the true beauty of that. I also would have thought that they would attact some wildlife as well.

Rose, I never get tired of the pictures you take of the fruit trees. They're always so beautiful. And, of course, you know I always love barns!!!
