We have spent the past few days celebrating… Mabon, The Autumn Equinox, Feast of the Ingathering, Alban Elfed, the start of Fall. It is glorious. During the evenings it is nice to welcome the dark that comes ever so much earlier now and eat by candlelight. During the day we spend time outside in the cool, crisp air and let the elusive sun kiss our cheeks. We went to an annual Apple Festival, rode on hay covered wagons, drank apple cider floats, and we picked our own apples in the orchard. Little did we know we would stumble onto the best deal on apples around. We picked over half a bushel of apples, 25 pounds or so, for only $9. That works out to about .40 cents a pound and that is a steal! We got Ida and Jonathan varieties since we love tart apples. Then we came home and made apple dumplings. As I write this my husband is baking some apples to put on top of buckwheat pancakes. I love the way the house smells.
Here are some of my fave shots from the past few days. Something has inspired me to break out the camera and take pretty pictures again… must be Fall.
