Leaves of Gold

Just over the fence in our back yard is a small family orchard.

 

The owners (our sweet neighbors) work tirelessly every year to get the very most out of their little corner of earth and I love to watch them together.

 

They've used a lot of interesting techniques this year to save their plants from the wonky weather we've had. Currently there is a row of sprouts that are all sporting bright green hats to shield them from the snow we've had the last few days.

 

Great for the plants I'm sure, but also great for me because it makes for great background color in pictures like this!!
