apples

Apple pie. Apple cider. Apple juice. Baked apples, cinnamon and sugar. Applesauce. Warm, apple smell drifting around the kitchen and enveloping you like a mohair scarf. Apple picking. Apple crates. Apples coming out your ears.

Here are the apples of my eye, making apple juice and peeling, coring, and slicing apples to be dried in the generous autumn sun.

So lovely. It looks like they are having a terrific time--so industrious and useful and joyful. Thanks for sharing the beautiful autumn photos.

You take such beautiful pictures Meg. Thank you for sharing. Can I ask what kind of camera you shoot with? I'm thinking of doing a major upgrade and figure that a good place to start my research is by asking folks who take great photos. Thanks.

These photos make me miss working with little ones!! Such a great age to experience things with...especially apple cider presses! I so love fall!!!

These kids are having a blast! We are planning a little day adventure up into apple country this next month. And we are getting the most surprising fall weather here in Socal. Perfect for some soup and cider.

Apples are bountiful up here in upstate NY. Your pictures are beautiful! Hopefully, tomorrow when we are pressing apples for cider we will have such nice weather and pictures. :)
