Apple Festival Time

October is Apple Festival time around Oregon
 I love apples, so off I went to explore.
Aren't they beautiful?
The varieties were numerous.
The addition of autumn settings made it delightful.
I love autumn for the celebration of color and harvest.

What delights you about this season of harvest?

Your collage is lovely. Those apples do look good - such bright color and they look crisp. It is fun to visit growers to see and taste varieties not available in the grocery store, isn't it?

I love the colors of the season, and apples and winter squash and warm sweaters and snuggly afghans and quiet evening by the fire!

So lovely--this post really says AUTUMN, Marilyn! I love the change of colors, apple time for apple treats, I like how the body gently, naturally seems to turn inward--into the home more, into one's spirit more. The celebration of Thanksgiving is dear to my hear at this time of year, my favorite holiday. And I look forward to soon traveling to the US to share it with my family--many years since I had a REAL American Thanksgiving... I can almost taste the pumpkin pie already...mmm... Happy Weekend :o) ((HUGS))

Apple harvest and grape harvest has been fun to observe, but I have to say that the wheat harvest has always been my favorite. The huge combines that track the sides of steep hills so amazingly are something I never tire of observing!

I fear too many things delight me about autumn -- will I have enough room? The apples, squash and pumpkins -- all the harvest veggies; the wonderful and brilliant leaves; walks on crisp days; seeing change each and every day; the pleasure of buttoning things up; more time inside for creative pursuits... shall I quit now?!
