‘t Was a mellow Monday on Apple Hill, where about fifty apple farms,
a few vineyards and tree farms are located. May have been the last warm and beautiful day of this year!

THE GOOD:  Not only did they have apples:)
THE RANDOM: also  pumpkins, persimmons, gourds, lots of  apple pie,
and random shopping booths. Am going to try this EASY recipe
Apple Hill gave. Sorry for the cheesy pic next to it –  that’s all I have:)

THE FUN: Years ago the grands, rode their favorite pony with delight.
This one is much prettier than this filter shows, but I had to do something
about the extremely harsh green of the fence!

Even the flowers today are orange




The fishing pond was well sought after. This shady spot is easier on the eyes.




Fudge factory_3391

Next to the fish pond, a small Fudge factory, but oh such a dangerous place –
ended up with a six piece of chocolate fudge with a layer of coconut in between.




Of course I forgot to take a pic of the door of the fudge factory! Here’s one we come home to instead. So much glass that it is drafty in winter. Instead of the drab colored curtain when we moved in, I waited till the thick decorator material was 50% off, to Quicklyhaha -sew this one, plus the ones for the side lights).

Actually started my post with this gorgeous sunset behind this enormous tree

A glorious end of the day!
