The Orchard

 Last week, we made our first trip of the year to Chile's Fruit Orchard. The trip there is pretty.


Here, we are driving up to it.






They had these strawberry facts on their outside wall.




They had lots of big metal roosters. A bunch were under a table that they call their Coop.



This huge owl hovered above them.


Felt birdhouses.



We got some nectarines, and ice cold bottles of Apple Ginger Ale.

What a neat place. Love the view. I had no idea that strawberries were a member of the rose family.
Looks like there was lots of fun stuff to look at there. The apple ginger ale sounds really good.

Love the roosters and the owl. We ate strawberries yesterday picked by out kids and grandkids. Our season for them is almost done.

What a nice drive to the orchard. This reminds me of a place we go to in the Fall called Apple Hill. It's an orchard with so many things to see and all kinds of apple goodies to eat. Those strawberry facts are interesting. Didn't know they are from the Rose family. That owl is cool also. And I love the "chocolate" quote haha.

Have a really good week, Ginny.

Lovely photos of your outing to the orchard, and some fun facts about strawberries. I wonder how they counted the seeds, LOL.
