apples




We went apple picking over the weekend, and the weather was glorious. Now it's time to make applesauce and tarte Tatin. I love apples, I really do.

Oh, this is why I love fall. I can't wait to go apple picking!

Love that last shot!

When I was a little girl it was really exciting to spy apple thieves (local baby bad boys) when they came around in autumn. Nowadays kids have much worse habits than steeling apples, I guess... NOT that I think your apples are stolen, Jill. This just aroused old memories : )

And I envy Anu trees, too.
It must be incredible to have those trees in your own garden.

Everybody in my family likes apples but we never have the chance of going aplle picking... We are a little too much urbanite. How I envy Anu's old trees too!

I am about to post about apples too! Any good recipes? I love crumbles but kind of bored with it! We went apple picking with most kids in the hamlet with a big sheet to collect them while falling, so much fun! but I didn't get any pictures I sort of enjoy the moment... Love your last picture!

I see you all like apples too! We had to drive about 40 minutes to get to this orchard, and it was so pretty, I seriously started to wonder why I was living in the city. Now hearing that Anu has her own apple trees makes me feel a little jealous! So...I'll drown my sorrows in making apple recipes. Artycho, I'll send you a link to my favorites :)
Stardust, I like your story about the naughty apple thief boys. I agree, it seems really innocent these days.
