Being the law abiding citizen that I am, I tend to err on the side of just climbing on the fence if I can reach the apple. And now we have generous neighbours with an orchard of trees who take all the fun out of it & say pop round any time. Although this year is an abysmal one for apples, leaving thin pickings.
However. This autumn we have spent a week in sunnier climes. We have just got back from a week in Cypress, visiting my sister. Which demanded a different kind of scrumping. Oh, yes indeed. We got to scrump some lemons for our tea.
