Apple Picking in Donnybrook

Beautiful trees and autumn leaves on our drive to Donnybrook today.

 A little shop in Boyanup with lots of pretty things (mainly in the vintage French country theme). A surprising find in a town that you could miss if you blinked.

 The pick of the bunch!
 Sundowner and Pink Lady apples ready for the picking at Spring Valley Orchard, just south of Donnybrook WA. A small farm, basically a packing shed and rows of apple trees. You can arrange to visit and pick your own when in season.
 We took a picnic and enjoy a little country today.
 Horses are friendly, but got disappointed when our pockets were empty (I think they like apples).
 A giant chess set outside a small bookshop in Donnybrook called Donny books (worth a stop because I picked up a 1928 sewing instruction book for $4)
 We saw a few wild emus eating free farm grass and a giant carved bull that likes wine I think.

With a bag full of apples, we are ready to make something delicious.
