Fruit Picking in the Orchard

My sis from overseas is visiting and one of her bucket list is to pick apples from the orchard. So we went to Bilpin last Saturday which is a 2 hour-drive west of Sydney to pick not only apples red and green but also oranges and mandarin. Unfortunately, the oranges were not yet ready and the mandarin is in another location but I was happy enough to be able to come out of my normal Saturday routine.

The orchard has a little pond which looks really nice and different areas for each kind of fruits. With the winter season going on, some of the tree leaves have turned into different shades of red and brown, perfect for photo opportunity.

Checked biker jacket

I chose to wear red checked jacket because it would look good next to the red apples hehe. This biker jacket I got from Zara is really warm and snug fit. And I have to wear black with the rest of my outfit to synchronise with the jacket.

With our temperature dropping everyday, I am now wearing beanies and scarves. I got this pompom beanie from my niece, how awesome is thatslenie. I carried my Michael Kors tote with me where I stored some of the apples :)

Have you tried eating an apple straight from the tree? They said it's the freshest you can get but I didn't try. But we wish we tried because we bought more red apples thinking it would be sweeter than the green. But turned out to be the other way around, this Granny Smith is sweeter than the Sundowner.

 That's how our day went but of course it didn't end without eating and buying some goodies so on our way home we dropped by a café around the area that makes homemade apple pies which I must say the best one I've tasted for a long time.

  7. I love australia-- and how its legit winter over there while we in the US are just getting into the summer heat, haha. I've only ever gone strawberry picking once when I was 12-- years ago, but i still remember it because it was so much fun. I'm really craving apple pie right now, haha!

  20. I can see why your sister would want to pick apples from the orchard. That is something I'd love to do as well. These pictures are so delightful, Mercy. Your red checkered jacket is just right for the outing, and I love that pom pom beanie. The apple pie sounds delicious. This place reminds me of a place we go to in Autumn called Apple Hill, which has apple pie, caramel apples, apple cider - everything apples. I'm so glad you and your sister had a good time at the orchard. And I bet your little one had a fun time too.

  26. It's fascinating for me to see these photos with beautiful autumn atmosphere in June, when most of the planet has summer. My parents have the garden and I can say, that apple and most of the fruits and vegetables taste absolutely the best right after you pick them. We don't have lemon and orange tree tough and these are my favourite. BTW, you look adorable in this outfit!
