Scottish Thistles

This sign is posted on the fence around an orchard that has dark, sweet cherries, plums, apricots, peaches and several varieties of apples.  It is an orchard that was planted, pruned, cared for and maintained by my dad until he passed away in January 1997.  I remember just a few days before his passing (from a sudden heart attack) he was in this orchard on his tractor with a blade on it, moving the snow around to maximum the effect of moisture into the ground.  The orchard is now owned by another couple who are great friends and neighbors and let us go in and pick ANYTHING we want, ANY TIME there is something to pick. And, YES, it is the BEST fruit on planet earth!
