Autumn has its rituals. One of ours is visiting the mountain apple farm.
Whether or not there is anything special about Dixon Apple Farm's apples is beside the point. We swear there is, and nothing else will substitute.
Fall rituals also bring changes in the way things look around the house, of course.
It's a perfect season for the patio, but the mood is different now.
We tend toward evergreens in pots because they require less attention.
Dried arrangements take on a special beauty in the fall.
Does autumn feel like an earthier time for you?
Fall family rituals seem cozier. We always used to put up jars of applesauce with apples from the same orchard year after year when the family was young.
Now that we are scattered like windblown leaves to the four quarters of the country, our yellow delicious apples have moved beyond being an indispensable flavor of fall, to becoming a sweet tasting emblem of togetherness.
Fall brings thankfulness and reunion along with it. It's a natural gathering time of not only the fruits of our labors, but for shelter and company. I hope you're enjoying your own autumn rituals.
Thanks for stopping by! Ciao! for now!
