"What are we doing here?"...

They say as we pull off the road near the woods. "Picking up hedge balls, you know those green balls some call hedge apples." "What do you do with them?", they say in unison. "Decorate around the garden, of course!"
It didn't take long to get into the art of gathering hedge apples.


She did help, although her heart wasn't really in it.

And she will become the sidekick when gathering goodies from the woods. After all, it won't be long to search for red berries and pine cones.
"You mean we can do this again?", she says with a smile.

I MISS hedge apples!!! We lived in Wichita/Derby, KS for 12 years, we moved to Maine 7 years ago. I miss Heart's Desire stitch store too. We enjoyed many great trips to Kansas City.
