In my heart, it is fall. I'm ready for sweaters, scarves, wool socks, leaves and hot coffee, yet the weather in the Mid West continues to pretend it's summer. It's autumn in the mountains and apples on knobby trees have been ready for harvest for months. It's just now apple time in Missouri, and I rushed out to the orchards this past weekend for a peck of apples.
Here are some photos of my twin, Kimberly Inez, and Ethan picking mountain apples from my latest trip to NC.
