Fall is here

Fall is here.  This starts a great season in colours, and beauty, as the world prepares itself for the long winter ahead.  At least here in Edmonton.  Our apple trees were, again,  very fruitful this year.  We have so much of all kinds of different apple preserves from the years before, that this year we let it go.  It saddens me to all that fruit unpicked, but then when I remember the amount of work it takes to go through one batch of these, I just shake my head and let the apples fertilize the ground.
