I was sitting upstairs today with all of the windows open because it is a glorious sunny day. All of a sudden this wonderful smell came wafting into the room.
The unmistakable aroma of Autumn Apples tingled my senses in the most delightful way.
Unless you live in farm country you cannot really imagine what that smells like. There are orchards all around our area and when the apples ripen and fall on a sunny, breezy day like this the scent surrounds you.
This is the last official week of summer and although the sun may still be very warm Fall is upon us and apples are the first Fall Harvest we get to enjoy.
When the days are a little cooler I love to make apple pies. The house is filled with the heavenly scent of baking, but not just any baking, Autumn Baking.
So as our summer slowly comes to an end I open my arms wide to welcome the Goddess of the Harvest. Bring me your ripe, red and golden apples and I shall bake you a pie!
