The first fruit of the Summer fruit season is nearly ripe, the Early Divinity apricots.
Looks to be a good crop, and generally, most trees have set well.
We provided lunch for the Laura & District Probus Club on Tuesday 13th October.
There were 28 members present, and they enjoyed a meal of produce mainly from our garden, as well as sausages made from our beef.
A convivial group, and we enjoyed their visit.

Apricot trees are in flower. Hoping for a good crop in December.
The good winter rains have continued, with 40mls in the past several days, which adds to the 27mls received last week.

At a ceremony on 20th July, the Old Nursery was reopened to the public.
It was considerably burnt by the Bangor Bushfire in January 2014, and was closed due to safety concerns.
Since then, the burnt and damaged trees have been removed, and the red gum post and rail fence rebuilt.
The olive hedge, burnt by the fire, has also regrown sufficiently for it to be trimmed for the occasion.
Mid July, and we have received 110mls of rain over the past week.

The dam by our driveway is full, and a pair of ducks have taken up residence.
One of our recent guests, a keen photographer, sent us this photo of Apricot Cottage at night, with the starry
sky above. Thank you, David, for the photo
