5 in 5 - September 2018 - The Victorian Orchard

Welcome to '5 in 5' where on the 5th of 
each month I post 5 photos that I have 
taken in 5 minutes.

I have just spent a week away with my daughter and 3 grand daughters. It is our annual re-treat and I found two beautiful locations - the first a log cabin on the rivers edge where we canoed and sat round a cosy log in the evening - more for atmosphere than to keep warm.

The next was total contrast, the top floor of a beautiful old Hall dating back to 1189, with extensive gardens and farmland surrounding it. Here, there was some lovely walled areas and a orchard planted in Victorian times. The trees were gnarled and twisted and still giving plentiful fruit, and the orchard offered a lovely photo opportunity. So here is this months 5 photos captured in 5 minutes:

It was lovely to enjoy this tranquil space and be invited to take home apples, cobnuts, and windfall walnuts. The walnuts will be made into ink as the bottle I made last year has proved especially successful and I don't want to run out or be sparing with it.

The passing of holidays and summer bring a lust for more, but it is good to remember that nothing lasts forever and each season brings new opportunity and gifts. 

Thank you for visiting!  If you would like to join in this month's challenge you have until 25th to take your photos and post a link to your blog. Here's how it works:

1.  Choose a location.

2.  Have your camera ready.

3.  Set a mobile timer for 5 minutes.

4.  Take as many photos you can until the time is up.

5.  Choose 5 photos to download and share by using the link tool 

   You have until the 25th of the month to add your photos and if you want to know more about 5in5 there are details here.

And one more thing - when you use the link tool, please click on your post title.  This will show the web address. Please right click, copy and paste this as your link.  This will take readers directly to your '5 in 5' blog page and be easier for them to find.


  1. The textures in the first photo are beautiful. It looks like a wonderful place to wander round and you've captured the spirit of the place in this set of images.

  2. I just love that latch. It's such an atmospheric photo. You give no clues as to where this might be. I will upload mine a little later . The theme is similar!

  3. Such a pretty place to walk & I bet there's such a scent about, one that tells you the season is changing. I like the photo with the building.

  4. I'm also a fan of the first photo, although all five speak of a lovely place---and a lovely time with family. Nothing is better than time away (or home, for that matter) with family---especially after they've established their own families.
