Week 42 - In The Orchard Photo Challenge

"An orchard is an intentional planting of trees or shrubs that is maintained for food production."

This week we are to record a moment in an orchard. Whenever I think of an Orchard I think, apples, peaches and even a pecan tree. Of course living in central (and southern) Florida all we have are Orange Groves. But when you look at the definition of an Orchard, oranges certainly fit the bill. So, this past Sunday my husband took me out in search of an Orange Orchard (Grove). We drove (no kidding) about 80 miles from beginning to end of our trip, in search of one. And of course, the only face I had was my willing to please husband. I know its not very creative but he drew the line at trespassing onto the private property to pick an orange off the tree.

Here he is standing in front of an Orange Grove in Central Florida. I know I am biased....but I think he is awfully handsome!!

He is not only handsome, but definitely a keeper if he's willing to drive 80 miles to get you an orchard shot and pose for you. Lucky you! Great shot!
