Hi all- it's been a while! I've had to put the blog on a back burner due to a new job opportunity. However, this weekend I have a spare moment to post something, so here goes!
If I had to choose a favorite season, it would have to be fall, with spring as a very close second. This mainly has to do with apple trees. In fall, they offer us a bounty of colorful fruit that can be used in pies, crumbles, and quick breads (like my signature Banana Apple Bread.) In spring, the trees put on a glorious show of blossoms.
Lucy Maud Montgomery's writing is unmatched when it comes to painting a scene in nature. She could certainly express the delights of apple trees better than I can... here are some fitting quotations from Anne of Green Gables.
Just think what a lovely place to live–in an apple blossom! Fancy going to sleep in it when the wind was rocking it. If I wasn’t a human girl, I think I’d like to be a bee and live among the flowers.
The orchard, with its great sweeping boughs that bent to the ground with fruit, proved so delightful that the little girls spent most of the afternoon in it, sitting in a grassy corner where the frost had spared the green and the mellow autumn sunshine lingered warmly, eating apples and talking as hard as they could.
Wishing you a wonderfully crisp and apple-filled fall!
Thank you for stopping by,
