One of my most Favorite fall activities is apple picking. There is just something about being in the crisp fall air, tasting the delicious apple cider slushees and apple doughnuts, and picking enough apples for months of apple pies and apple crips. I love exploring the different types of apples and finding an unexpected new one. Apple picking just says FALL to me.
In years past we always enjoyed visiting Carter’s Mountain in Charlottesville. We loved it there. This year we had to make a switch and find a place outside of Philadelphia. Would we be able to find a place so memorable? Would the experience be less of a thrill? We found Solebury Farm in New Hope fit the bill! The farm was beautiful, they even had a cutting garden! There was plenty of parking but you did need to make a reservation on their website. We found it very accommodating for people with disabilities and seniors.
Apples not your thing? No worries! They offer year round produce picking. I can’t wait to try blueberries!
As much as I love my porch in the summer, it really turns into a magical place in the fall. Nothing is better on a cool fall afternoon relaxing on the porch watching the world change color. The brisk air brings people outside after the heat of the summer and you get to wear cozy sweaters again!
Of course, you need some Halloween touches along with the harvest decor. Mums are necessary and pumpkins the perfect touch. Come visit my porch, I have apple cider and pumpkin spice treats to share!
Today I felt a little fall in the air, just a little. The weather was cooler, relatively, we attended a Navy football game, winning game I should say, and the tops of the trees in the neighborhood are turning red and orange. I love fall. I feel like I can exhale as I look forward to the next month or two. Apple picking, Halloween, crunchy leaves, pumpkins, mums..so much color and beauty. Is it the ending of something or the beginnings of something? I don’t know but both options signal change and transformation. Everyone needs a transformation every now and again, so embrace it. Enjoy some early fall in my home!
