Apple Time

Apple harvest - the best time of the year



The best part of happiness is the apple tree



If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees. ~Hal Borland



I hear the wind among the trees
Playing the celestial symphonies;
I see the branches downward bent,
Like keys of some great instrument.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Bread and butter, devoid of charm in the drawing-room, is ambrosia eaten under an apple tree. ~Elizabeth Russell


An apple a day keeps the doctor away

Pie!

Oh JoAnn! What a splendid, beautiful post! Apples are delicious gems, and the trees are wonderful, fromvtheir blossoms to their fruit. :)

Beautiful tree shots but I have to admit the one that got my most focused attention is that luscious looking pie! Yum! I can almost smell it.

I agree with Kay - I loved the apple shots and then came that wonderful pie and my mouth was watering - delicious.

Lovely post, JoAnn! I wait every fall for the new crop of MacIntosh apples ~ my favorite ~ and all the other luscious varieties too. I'm from the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia which is a famous apple growing area in Canada. I thoroughly enjoyed the photos!

Ooh,lucky you :). Our Fuji apples were gone overnight when they were the size of golf balls, not a trace of what might have happened? :( Thanks for sharing and partying with us!

I can practically taste the crisp and juicy apples on those trees! I love the quote by Elizabeth Russell. And that apple pie just makes my mouth water. Beautiful photos :) xo

They are the most beautiful apples I have ever seen :-)

Is that your own apple tree? I would love a apple tree in my garden.

The deer or the bears ate most of our apples and broke branches on the trees while doing so - such a shame! I'll have to buy my apples this year.
Gorgeous shots!

Just the sight of a good red apple makes my mouth water! But the last shot of the apple pie has me craving it ;) Great little thoughts & photos on the humble apple. Wendy (visiting from Fishtail's)
