Noah is showing some interest in the camera. He notices colours especially, and several times in the past week has gone to grab the camera when he's noticed some interesting colours outside. He liked the red and green together in this photo. It's worth enlarging a bit by clicking to really appreciate the cloud of cherries that are surrounding Fiona.
The GRUBS club volunteers to help pick fruit trees to reduce bear issues in town. We either give the fruit to the tree owner or, if (as is usually the case) the owner has a bumper crop and just wants the fruit gone, we save it to use in our Harvest Festival and/or to give away. This weekend we had a go at this Queen Anne cherry tree. As usual it was the youngest children who were the ones who wanted to spend all their time at the very top of the available ladders.
