This weekend Laura’s parents started picking the apples growing in their garden. I love climbing trees, so what better excuse is there than to help pick apples?

What puzzles me is why all the big apples are right at the top of the tree where nobody can reach them? Laura’s Dad got the ladders out and still could not get to them. I wanted to climb up to get them but Laura’s Dad stopped me. Laura’s Mum said if I got stuck then they would not be able to reach me and she would have to call the fire brigade to rescue me. I do think she over reacts sometimes!

Anyway, we picked the biggest and best apples that could be reached without requiring the fire brigade, although I am sure the firemen would have enjoyed a piece of the apple pie she made – it was delicious.
