I am sure that it comes as no surprise to many of you, that I have a bit of a 'thing' for old signage.
I have a number of old signs here around home, and also at the bach.
I love the stories they tell.
Particularly if they're quaint, quirky and home-made.
I'm bound to love a sign if it has any or all of these traits.
The less professional it is, the more I'll probably love it.
And, in my eyes, these orchard signs are absolutely the best.
They're on a stretch of highway that I swear, Brunnell deliberately speeds up on whenever we pass.
I'm not sure why - tempting though it is to dream of hanging them on my wall, I'm not about to try anything underhand.
Oh he of little faith!
Apples - eaters and cookers. Sounds like something my grandmother used to say.
She'd have said they tasted 'corker' too.
No, I'll just content myself with the photos - for now.
I managed to take these on a trip without Brunnell in the car.
A u-turn on a main highway, and squelching about in the mud while wearing my city-girl shoes.
Yes, I looked really stupid.
But it was worth it. The BEST sign don't you agree!
One day I might be brave enough to venture up the drive, buy some of those delicious apples, and perhaps ask if they still need the broad beans sign.
