Two halves of the same fruit

We have been in a quandary - should we - shouldn't we?

With only two apricots on the tree we didn't want to pick too soon but there again we didn't want to leave it too late. 

In the end the tree decided for us and discarded one of the fruits.
Luckily this much anticipated event occurred when Martyn was in the greenhouse and so in a matter of minutes, after a photoshoot, the fruit was cut in half and shared.
It was delicious.

  2. I'd be worried one of the animals around here would steal it. But you probably don't have that problem in your greenhouse.
