Fall Approaches

Where has the summer gone? It seems like we were just picking strawberries and now it is almost fall. One of the first signs, or rather smells, that makes me think of fall is of apples in a nearby orchard. Ted and I often ride our bikes in the morning or evening on a nearby back road where there is an orchard with peaches, pears, and apples. When we start to notice the juicy, fruity aroma of apples, we know that summer is on the wane. Just the other day I noticed this for the first time. Soon it will be time to go over to Nichols orchard and pick apples for cakes, pies, and sauce, and to have in a basket on the porch for all to enjoy. We have done this for over 30 years!
