Cherry Country

30 Aug 2011

We were due to depart from the USA on Sunday, but our flights were cancelled due to Hurricane Irene so we are now scheduled to leave on this coming Sunday the 4th. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share some cherry-licious photos from our tour of Door County last week.

Even though it’s late in the season, the trees at Hyland Orchard still had pretty + tart Montgomery cherries ready to be picked by curious little hands.

When you arrive at the orchard you feel like you’ve stepped back in time when you spot this vintage beauty

And these tempting buckets of gorgeous, freshly picked cherries were certainly mouth-watering….

After you grab a your own bucket, you are escorted to the pretty orchard, complete with rows + rows of trees and a big red barn in the distance

Geoffrey enjoyed picking cherries and we brought a little bag home to share with our friends

It was a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon in Door County

Slan Abhaile,

Imen

Because of the changes in our itinerary, I will sadly not be participating in Electric Picnic this weekend. Hope to see you at GIY Gathering in Waterford on the 10th and 11th.

    Ohhh, I love these pictures so much! Reminds me of cherry picking in the back acreage on my old farm in Washington. 🙂

    Beautiful! I’ve lived in cherry country before, but it never looked so appealing. I’ve been stuck in New England also – have a safe trip home!

    HI HO CHERRY – O !
    Every photo more beautiful than the last– this post really “cherr-ed” me up. For real.
    Especially the last lone cherry on the tree. Thanks Imen. Enjoy your last week in the states. Ciao.

    Your post has made me instantly homesick for Wisconsin! I’ve been to Door County a few times. Thanks for sharing and safe travels back home. x
