Apple Day – 06/10/13

2013-10-06 12.15.09Now, if you don’t like apples this might not be the day out for you. But if you’re enthusiastic about things that embrace nature within the safe confines of Central London, you’d like Apple Day. It’s at Roots and Shoots in Kennington, and essentially you go, admire the nature garden, eat apples and do apple-related things. Strangely enjoyable. I don’t have too much to say, but I got some great photos, so here goes! Additional models are the Maria Family (sorry C’sMum)

There was… The eating of apples

  1. A whole fruit based day? Weasel would just mope in a corner somewhere. It would almost be worth her over the top, fruit hater’s reaction.
