Celebrate Tryon Farm

It was a lovely celebration. Click on the photo above to view a slideshow of the evening.

(If you notice most of the images are a bit blurry, I was experimenting with a slower shutter speed to avoid using the flash. At first I thought it was a cool effect - the blur adequately describing the cheer and energy of the party. But ultimately, it is just a group of distorted images.)

If anyone else has some good photos, please post them.

"We could never have loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it..."
George Eliot

We had a terrific time apple picking this weekend at Radke's Orchards. In addition to many wonderful apple trees to climb and pick from, they also have a tractor pull to hop on and off at designated stops - a relief when the bags are full, and great fun for the kids. Don't forget to browse through the recipe file. They're free for the taking. I've heard the Apple Pull-apart Bread is delicious. Yummmm.
