The Yarra Valley by miraries

The Yarra Valley

I'm back here at Melbourne' s Yarra Valley, famous for its wineries & fruit orchards. Here at John & Brigitta's farm, the cherries are all in bloom, and you can see the mountains in the horizon. In another month or so this place will be a hive of activitivity as fruit pickers, mainly Asian students descend here for their summer holidays to earn some pocket money and backpackers try to extend their visa by working in farms. Fruitpicking is a job that most Australians turn their noses up on and so a lot of farmers rely on itinerant workers - even on gray nomads like me. But me...been there, done that! Working in a farm that is!

Well, I think I am back on 365...very slowly. I am behind by at least 7 photos as I have 2 albums. Everything went well with my procedure but I still need to take it easy. Thanks everyone who wished me well & I will get around to your comments & photos - soon, I hope
Beautiful place, views go on forever. I can see why people would want to extend their stay. Wish you well with recovering and this is a stunning shot.

Very nice. Reminds me of Door County in Wisconsin. Cherry trees extend to the horizon. Only there are no mountains to make a beautiful backdrop like in your photo. Very nice.
