There is nothing quite like Autumn in the Mountains. It has been such a hot late summer, that nary a thought was given to Apple Pickin' season, until this morning when we woke to below freezing temps. Yes, fall was definitely in the air, so we decided to take the day and bring Hannah and my granddaughter off for a day of Autumn fun.
We started the day, taking a tractor pulled ride down deep into the apple orchard.
The girls had a fun time climbing the apple trees.....and given that I had the camera, they did the pickin' and I did the picture snappin'
After the Orchard, we went searching in the Great Pumpkin Patch. Here at the farm, while I searched for Autumn Mums, Pumpkins, Indian Corn and winter squash, the girls and Ken visited the Hay Maze that the farm builds every year for the children. Yup........Ken is a big kid at heart ;-)
Once at home, I settled down to read my new Apple Cookbook.With yummy recipes for the fall and recipes for preserves (yes Norma and Liz, I am getting a jump on next year's Victory Garden), this book is a good thing.
To keep this fiber related, Mr. Froggy helped me display my morning's work.....a skein of Candy Apple to be sold at the Fair next week with Anne's Lotus Blossom scarf pattern.
Today........it was all good :-)
