Wild Apples in Abundance

This weekend we were away with some (very posh!) friends in Henley on Thames, whilst out walking we came across the most extraordinary sight.  A tree full of apples – given that it is the end of November this was quite astonishing – the tree was completly bare of leaves.

The kids jumped up and grabbed a few and we tried them – they not only looked, but tasted like REALLY GOOD Golden Delicious before the supermarkets got in on the act and they all became fluffy, texture-free and tasteless.  The tree was too high to allow us to gather properly, but we tucked in to as many as we could right here and then!
