Celebrating the Apricot

Okanagan Okanogan

Today, a moment of joy. Remember the apricots of a year ago?


Tilton Apricots, Lower Keremeos, Similkameen Valley

The great preserving cot of the West.

And remember the ones of this August, which ripened while I was kayaking with the turtles in the Sinlahekin Valley?



Seedling Apricots in My Backyard

But not my apricots, if you know what I mean. Photographers, please forgive the overexposure, but I had reason to get out of there quick!

Well, look at them now:

The sun is shining right there. (Note: I have the other remaining one.)

That colour is just consistent through and through. Look at it again.

That’s it for today. Just happiness.
