My Orchard

This is my little orchard. My orchard is behind my house. I like to grow many different kinds of fruit.  I started planting fruit trees five years ago. I plant a few new trees every year. 

In my orchard I grow many kinds of fruit.  I grow peaches, apricots, cherries, apples, oranges, mandarins, pears, plums, grapes and berries. I think it is good to grow fruit. Growing things makes you feel good.   Also fresh fruit is healthy and delicious!  At the supermarket fruit is expensive and sometimes not very fresh.  My dog's name is Cho.  She likes the orchard too =)

In New Zealand it is spring. There are still some blossoms on the trees. These are apple blossoms.  I think they are very pretty.  I hope my trees produce lots of tasty fruit this year! Most kinds of fruit are ripe in summer.

Last month I made some little flower gardens in my orchard. I hope they provide food for insects and look pretty. Insects are important, they pollinate the flowers and help control pests. 

I love to eat boysenberries. What is your favourite fruit?

"Growing things makes you feel good."

'.....makes you feel good' is a useful phrase.  Here are some more examples:

Helping a friend makes you feel good.

Swimming in the sea makes you feel good.

Learning new things makes you feel good.

Being kind makes you feel good.

What makes you feel good?
