A few ways you can tell it is fall here in Quimper Land: Ripe red apples on the backyard tree….

  1. Leaves are turning such beautiful colours here, lots of Person’s apples are ripe, though ours need a little longer, the veggies are stored, blackberries and rosehips are ready to harvest and the swifts are sitting on the overhead wires, ready to fly south to Africa. I love autumn.
    Best of all is the smell and bright colours of jams and jellies we are bottling.
    My favourite is plum, ginger and almond. Yummy. Roberta likes raspberry best. Which do you girls like best?

  2. The leaves are falling here and Hitty Madge has the first of her Autumn dresses made. She walked around the garden in it yesterday looking at all the changes in the garden that herald the fall. Leaves of reds, goldens and browns are littering the garden. The girls have been conker collecting…who can resist the shiny conkers that fall to the ground beneath the Horse Chestnut trees? Apple and rhubarb crumble has been on the dessert menu for a few days now and has been enjoyed by all.

  3. Ahhhh fall. And I have to admit the pic of Patience at the mailbox made me grin. All wrapped up against the chill.
    Love all the photos and the commentary. Thank you so much for all of this.
