Weekly Photo Challenge: dialogue

600_8339-cf_wThe photo challenge at The Daily Post is called “dialogue” this week.

The idea is, to set two photos in a connection. This might be the same color, the same subject from different angles or two different photos having a certain  connection.

I’ve chosen, to take two photos with a “before and after” or “then and now” connection. You can see a photo taken two days ago: 2 apples in an apple tree. The other photos is taken back in April and is showing the blossoms at the same tree. So, here you have a then and now connection.

Enjoy the harvest time 🙂

it’s harvest time

600_4040-e_wFall also means harvest in the northern hemisphere.

The apples in the basket are freshly picked. It’s necessary to pick them not before they are ripe. But, don’t let them in the tree too long. Why? It’s easy. At the end of October you have to expect night frost and the frost will spoil most of the fruits.

So, we picked all of the apples, when I noticed a temperature of only 3°C in the morning. Now, we have them save in our cellar waiting to be eaten.

Many years ago, a common believe was, that in the night between October 31 and November 1st a devil jumps through the country and shits on all remaining fruits, grains, veggies and crops and spoils them that way. Nowadays we know that this devils really name is frost.

Take care!
