Some time ago I introduced an old friend who would occasionally contribute as a roving photographer. He owns a property down in the valley which is rapidly growing back into forest, except for the paths he keeps mowed and now two small orchards. Recently they have built an improved small barn for his tractor. He and I have walked this property many times, and his photos this time tell the story of a walk through the property so I can follow along, having been there.

The Roving Photographer
After that his walk takes us out into a flat clearing where his sons have now planted 30 apple trees, forming a second orchard. It will be interesting to see how this grows.
Beyond this a mowed trail takes us down toward the river, past some of his planted pines, beside his neighbour's open field.
And emerge onto the area where the old orchard is. Along the sloping edge the boys have planted some extra trees for wildlife.
And reach the old orchard. My sidekick's walk was in the early morning, so the sun isn't over the pine trees yet.
