Some of my favorite memories are of picking fruit in the orchard. Apples, cherries, blackberries, you name it, I probably got to "pick my own" at one time or another. Bryan and I have been looking for somewhere we can take our kids to experience that too, and I think we found it! It's not super close, but the drive to Medina was so pretty that it made up for it. Love Creek Orchards boasts some fine blackberries, and the apples are almost ready, too! While we were there, we made a quick stop at the Apple Store, and it smelled like heaven! Fresh baked apple pies sat on the shelves and there were some samples of Cinnamon Apple Preserves and Apple Marmelade (which was SO good!). Bryan treated me to homemade apple cinnamon ice cream and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I have to say that my favorite part was riding in the back of a little golf cart with Bryan to pick our own batch of blackberries. It was super hot, and the best blackberries are on the thorned bushes, so we spent a good while carefully picking through the bramble for the big juicy ones. We bled for those berries! LOL
They even have a pumpkin patch out there in October that I think we are going to have to go back for; love it! :) If you ever happen to be in the Medina, TX, area, you owe it to yourself to stop in for some apple ice cream... you won't regret it!
I am an artist at heart and have been ever since I can remember. I have been blessed with four beautiful children and an amazing husband. One of my favorite things to do is help others capture beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
