Today was the first full day of fall and also our monthly “date night”. Since the weather was beautiful we changed date ‘night’ to date ‘afternoon’ and headed off for a local u-pick apple orchard.
I grew up in British Columbia surrounded by apple orchards so it was a nice little romp down memory lane for me to see and experience the sights and smells.
Of course you can’t have a u-pick apple orchard without some animals to pet, and luckily there were a few of those as well.
There were some happy little goats…
…and a couple of Clydesdale ponies as well.
The apple trees were loaded with ripe, delicious and fragrant wares.
Apples are such an iconic autumn fixture in my mind, that today’s outing prompted me to seek out some apple-inspired DIY craft projects. Here are some of the beauties I found (direct links to follow):

Have a happy fall everyone!
