I must admit although spring is lovely, I do like the cold weather, and autumn is my favourite season (as I type, a whopping big blowfly buzzes around the room to verify this thought). So I'm a little wistful reading about mamas in the other part of the world embracing "fall" by celebrating harvests, picking and eating new season apples and canning, canning, canning.
Meanwhile, we're at the seasonal crossroads here in Tasmania, still eating last season's apples while waiting for those juicy summer peaches, cherries, apricots and berries to appear....can't wait.
So, inspired by all those apple pies being made by the blogging mamas, Hugo and I made a monster one today. A rather lovely hour as I sat and peeled apples whilst Hugo contentedly played with his dough. Happy times.
I would have posted a picture of said apple pie, but alas, my camera batteries died - Aw Scheiße!
