Orchard Heritage Park


On Sunday D. and I visited Orchard Heritage Park, and here are some of the pics I took.



The apricot orchard.





An old dray in the foreground, and old cultivators behind it, at the edge of the orchard.





A 13-shank tractor-drawn orchard cultivator, or, as I like to call it, the curly-cue machine.





Dead California asters.





A rusty harrow lies idle in the late afternoon sun.





A yellow mum in the garden next to the Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum.





A circle of bricks outside the museum is a gathering place for fallen leaves.





A wall of tiles decorated with kiddie art is on one side of the garden.  Here we see the Battie Scarred Monster tile.





Next, the Vacant-Eyed, Red-Faced Smiling Stick Man Tile.





Then there's, um, "GWERP."





Begonias are awash with afternoon sun.





Brilliant dahlias dance in the breeze.





A fiery skipper sips nectar from a lantana.





Skippers are adorable little butterflies.





A western fence lizard basks on a tree stump.





Happy Fall.
