More about this piece
The arrival of our apple crop is a major highlight of the year in our garden in Shepherds Bush. I photographed these three in August 2016, in between their pale chartreuse green phase and their deep rose stage. If you pick them and leave them in the sun for a day or two, they quickly turn a much deeper and more uniform shade of pinky red. But I like them when they’re somewhere in between. I have also really enjoyed using this group of apples as a textile design, and you can find them on aprons, oven gloves, greeting cards and tea towels in my Home Shop.
