The last of the apples on the trees have been taken over by wasps, so much so that it is dangerous to even attepmt picking any that are still intact. The Discovery ones don't keep very well once picked so it couldn't be helped. Next year I'll have to make a load of apple jelly. Its kind of funny seeing the wasps with their bottoms in the air as they demolish the apples, but obviously it wouldn't be funny to be stung. There were a couple of butterflies feeding on them too. I'm planning to head up to a little nursery at Fore today to get some heathers for some window boxes and go for a stoll around the lovely Fore Abbey.
