Apples, Plaid and Pinecones





Apples, plaid and pinecones.  Three things that always bring back
fond fall memories.  I have picked apples in Wisconsin, at the base of
the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and in Idaho too.  Baskets full
of reds and greens that become pies and crumbles or served sliced
with some cheddar cheese.  

Pinecones collected on hikes in the northern Rockies.  The sound of
falling leaves crunching beneath our feet.  

Plaid scarves and plaid flannel shirts protecting from the falling
temps.  Squirrels running everywhere busily burying their finds. 
It's a lovely time of the year.  The days are getting shorter, the
nights a bit cooler.  The beauty of the season is everywhere.
I love it!

I am joining the gals from Thoughts of Home for their
Be sure to stop by for some excellent fall decor ideas!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  7. One of my fondest memories of growing up in New Mexico: every fall we would travel out to Dixon Apple Farm and pick up apples. They had a wonderful spot for picnics. Apple cider, too! Thanks for the memories!

  8. I enjoyed reading your apple picking memories Susan and your tray is wonderful.
    Apples just signify home don't they and that plaid is perfect.

  11. What a pretty tiered tray you put together. My grandfather grew apples for market. At Christmas my grandmother would choose the best looking apples and display them in a blue and white bowl. It's the simple ideas that are sometimes the best ;)
