Apple Time by Susan L.

A huge black of starlings has just swept by to roost for a moment in the trees across the road. Their restless gathering is a sure sign fall is here. H and I are going to do some apple cooking later today. Pies possibly and more pies because the harvest is bountiful this year. The trees at the side of the road are loaded with fruit so we may as well take advantage of nature's gifts. Last year there weren't many apples due to a late frost that killed the flowers. I wonder if the trees are so loaded because of having a vacation year. Maybe there's a lesson here...o "For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His."

  1. I so miss picking apples in the fall! I've finally found an orchard not too far from me and we are going to try it this weekend. Yay for apples!
