I noticed on the way home tonight the crates are in the orchards just waiting to be filled with their harvested apple crop. But its August, is it really time? The picking hasn't begun yet, but with the crates in place it is about to begin ... very soon.
Wasn't it just yesterday that summer arrived? I know I have been busy, but where did summer go? Although I do love Fall and the crisp cool weather that follows, the smell of burning leaves and the house filled with simmering scents of stew and the vibrance of the colors of nature.
Here's hoping to a long lasting Fall.
A pleasant night and sweet dreams.
