(Music: Bring me a boat by Kate Rusby)
Plum picking is something we do every year, as well as blackberries, apples and strawberries. We love foraging for fruit and i love letting the girls experience these adventures and just be children. I give them a basket and let them be, occasionally helping them reach "big juicy juicy" ones that are out of their reach. I step back and snap away and let them create these memories together. I always make sure that i put my camera away near the end and take part with them, so they have those memories of mummy doing it with them.
We visited the plum orchard that is in the country park in my mothers village. It is only a few minutes from our house and the orchard is hidden from the main path, so is hardly seen by other people. It is a wonderful and enchanting and i always feel so at peace right there. Plum trees on one side and blackberries bushes on the other side. It is very much a happy place for us. We are already looking forward to the black berries ripening in a few weeks time.
I did a little video of the girls. Some of the footage is quite blurry as i completely forgot that i had to manually focus my prime lens until half way through. Last year, i took videos of most of our adventures and i just have completey forgotten to do any this year. This summer, i will make sure i do much more and i will remember to manually focus properly next time. I still love the footage though and it just makes me smile watching it.
