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.
