Now Adam?
 Now Adam?   by Ron Dawber  (Canon bridge camera)
Haigh hall top walled garden, the fruits of volunteers labour.

Thanks for the memories Ron. I must confess that as a lad I and others used to partake of these fruits at great risk, we had to keep a lookout for the head gardener.

would you beli eve it


Comment by Janice on 5th September 2012 at 06:23
Will an apple a day keep the moaners away? I doubt it- someone will complain that these are not Wigan apples - could be from anywhere! However this is a very nice shot Ron, well taken with good use of depth of field, a 'core' shot that should 'a-peel' :)

Ernest in response to 31 8 - it has the appearance of the flat face of an owl - I could be wrong. I am a crown Green Bowler and love the sport. See my website http://crowngreenphotos.webs.com/

Sorry for hijacking your day Ron

A lovely pic from my favourite time of year and a very special place; Autumn in The Walled Garden at Haigh Hall.


Comment by Garry on 5th September 2012 at 10:34
Not Autumn yet irene, you have to wait a few more weeks, usually when we altar the clocks.


Comment by irene roberts on 5th September 2012 at 10:48
I always thought it was March, April May...Spring; June, July, August...Summer; September, October, November...Autumn; December, January, February...Winter. Mind you, the seasons seem haywire these days, don't they? There's just no predicting the weather! But I do like early Autumn when the nights begin to draw in...cool mornings and evenings,and warm, mellow afternoon sunshine.

lovely photo, Irene's seasonal breakdown seems logical to me.Many happy times in the walled garden.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 5th September 2012 at 14:25
Janice, this photo is the type you see entered in a photo competition and is irrevelant on P-a-D, which is NOT a competition.
My sport, from the age of thirteen in 1941, was crown green bowling until I got hooked on golf in the early sixties. Still have my set of bowls and jack bought in 1946.
Hijacking, as you put it, on P-a-D is commonplace now.


Comment by irene roberts on 5th September 2012 at 16:28
This is a very pleasing picture taken in an historic part of Wigan. I don't think the photographer thought for one moment that Photo-a-Day was a competition. There has to be a bit of variety; I am a proud Wiganer, but if all that was shown were photos of Wigan Landmarks, eg, streets, canals etc. we would have run out of photos long ago. I myself posted a photo of my husband and myself in our 1940s clothes last year; the actual photo was taken in Stockport, but we, the subjects, are from Wigan. The photo brought forth a lot of comments, bringing all us strangers together, and surely that is what Photo-a-Day is all about?

I was a member of Wigan Photographic Society many years ago, and did OK in there competitions ,it is the best way to be competent in your hobby or profession. Every pick I take , I take it as though its a competition ,I think golfers football players do the same.What ever you do in life. I say do it the best way you can. You may not succeed,then try better. If this was a competition the standard of photography would improve.


Comment by irene roberts on 5th September 2012 at 19:36
Your photographs give us much pleasure, Ron. Thankyou


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 5th September 2012 at 21:09
We have an apple tree in the garden with 3 different varirties of apples....heck of a crop this year.Not quite ready to pick yet but i`m afraid the crows are making a mess "trying them out"They eat half of there chosen one and it falls on the floor and then the wasps move in !

Say , Garry, have you got 'holy' clocks? Alter, not altar!


Comment by Skeets on 6th September 2012 at 22:31
Say, dh alter, not altar.


Comment by Gary on 7th September 2012 at 18:23
Adjust sounds better than altar or alter!
