apple picking ...

: autumn days have come upon us, and with the cooler weather also comes crisp ripe apples. 
beth invited us girls along the other day, when she headed out to a nearby dirt road to gather fruit 
from wild apple trees growing beside the road :

 
: these trees seemed untouched and unused - heavily laden with fruit  
ripe for picking, and on the whole, good to eat :

: we brought a number of baskets along {which the nephews loved carrying around!} 
and we filled over three baskets worth with large green and red apples :

it was such a fun morning, and we've been very much enjoying cooking up and 
having yummy apple desserts which these cooler nights make all the more lovely! 

: what do you enjoy cooking with apples? :

  3. What a beautiful day Abbie! How neat that you were able to find wild apple trees! I wish I could come along! I love apples and especially apple pie! I hope you post some pictures of your apple treats for us to see!

    I am so happy to find you here and have been enjoying your lovely blog. All the pictures and writings have refreshed me so much.

    I would love to come over and have a nice tea with you! Maybe some day the Lord will open that door!

    Many blessings
