Those are beautiful pictures. I particularly like the reflection of the bridge.

But.......

Where's the people and the fruit ? =:)

I've never been to a fruit festival and would love to see the different fruits they have.

Here are some of the tables and tents of the folks who were displaying their fruits which can be grown in this region. Mark it on your calender for next year.

Great shots,..the first picture has a kind of tropical or desert looks.

As a grower I spent two day's at the garden, Saturday the growers got together in the main building downstairs, Sunday morning it was packed up and moved outdoor, soft ripe fruit like plum, pears got damaged by packing and transport,.. not my preferred system. We used to have a room upstairs before, now we got pushed out. I guess not bad when the weather cooperates and the public gets to see it outdoor in the garden.

In the building,.. most fruit in front is mine, lots of plums in Ziploc to keep greedy fingers away for Sunday tasting.

That is quite the display of fruit you have there Konrad. You certainly have a talent for growing fruit trees.

Thank you beegood!
That early Mac you have brought for tasting was very nice!
Someone told me that this one came out of Calgary.
Too bad, you've got the apple maggots too, ..not sure how bad this will spread out in my orchard, I have it too but most apples are still good. Still have some pears on at home, Golden spice, some Lukas, the Anjou, only two I picked today, also the last of the plums, it's been a very good year.
