Weekly Photo Challenge-Fresh


My contribution for this week’s challenge…



I recently posted these shots of our home-grown oranges,

Oranges which must have been taken nearly twelve months ago.


This morning our oranges are far from being orange.

for dear life, to the lower limbs of their tree and

hoping that Maggie does not develop a taste

for them, as she has for apples.

kept fresh where Maggie cannot taste them.

which I guess relates to a fresh  day.

Frost, cool temperatures (below 10 degree Celsius)

and it is often said that the wind, air or weather, is fresh.
