When most of the garden is slowing down for winter...how nice to have a plant that puts on a spectacular show! Now that my pink petunias are gone....and the winter pansies have arrived, I'm ready to do some fall decorating. It's time!
Another sign of fall...ladders and baskets under the apple tree (the neighbours tree, that is).
And in the kitchen everything is coming up apples! We've had applesauce, apple cake, apple fritters and apple pie.
The Italian prunes are nearing the end of the season...and I used the last of mine in galettes yesterday. Galettes are simple, rustic tarts...rather like a free-form pie without the top crust. I've made them with apples, peaches and plums...check out Betty's recipe here if you need a guide.
It may be cool and damp outside...but we've got the fire going...I'm wearing my slippers...sweet autumn is here!
