When we moved to our lovely home a few years ago, there rested two apple trees along the property. As a little girl, I always found the idea of skipping around the yard, casing after butterflies, then taking an apple off a tree for a snack, a wonderful idea. But we had no apple trees then, and, although I did try planting one once, we never got any. Due to my childish daydreams, I was delighted that we had trees here now.
Autumn has now taken over us and some of the apples are now ready to pick. We don't do anything to keep the wee buggies away, so most of them are not very appealing to the eye. But simply the idea of picking apples delights me.
Just spending autumn afternoons outside in the sunlight as it slips beyond the horizon will make me smile out of pure joy. With family, with friends, or with a page in a pen; hands down, I'm in.
what do you enjoy doing during autumn afternoons?
