In the apple garden



Signs of autumn have arrived in the garden and the apples have grown plumper as their picking time approaches. Windfalls are scattered amongst leaves in the sun drenched grass.
The fruits on the trees are as big as a fist, just as juicy and gleam the brightest red, just like baubles at Christmastime. There is a feeling in the air that says it won't be long now, just like a pie forming in the oven are our preparations for winter and Christmas already underway. We have a marvellous crop of Bramleys, Scotch Bridget, and Worcestors so hopefully they will last the best part of winter! Get too close and you can smell them: tangy, fragrant and sugar sweet.



They are getting ready to be stewed, made in to pies, or dipped in hot caramel for the autumn toffee apples tradition! This part of autumn gets me so excited, it's such an exciting time of the year to be part of; especially sharing it with other people: that's the sweetest part. We have stocked up on cinnamon for cooking and traded blackberries for damsons with neighbours.


The deer love this time of year too and we must hang up silver dishes to frighten them away. Homegrown stewed apples are the best, they are so tangy! How do you celebrate the season?

  15. Wow, this is such a beautiful post.
    Apples don't grow where I'm from, since the weather is too hot.
    Your photos are beautiful too.
