Spring Valley Orchard

 MMMMM... Cherry picking!  These hedelfingens were so lush that they practically fell off the limbs into our bags.  We came away with almost nine pounds!  Joshua converted most of them into cherry jam, Ella dipped chocolate cherries, Tucker dehydrated some, and of course lots were popped straight into our mouths.

I was really taken with this stone wall surrounding an old family cemetery.  The orchard is just eleven miles from our house and the stone in the wall is the same type as the stone of  "our" church, and the stone in our fireplaces.
