I have some apples:)

Helloooooo my Darlin Dears, the meadow creatures who lounge around with me during picnics and the Gnomes who went with me yesterday to go pear picking,

Miss Lamb your cow loving and sheep shearing farmer here,

My darlin dears...the apples are falling here at Early Bird Acres:)

As you saw in my last post, they are even growing from me...

...& Of course they are begging to be taken on picnics with me:)

We had a lovely morn a few days ago (me and the Gnomes) eating apples. toast and honey:) With a big glass of raw milk and a chunk of cheese:)

From Ohio of course:)

The Gnomes need to slow down though..they eat way to many...I need to save some for Pies:)

Cotton also joined us for our picnic :) He likes the red apples:)

So far...I have been on a pie kick:) Dutch apple pie to be exact:)

...but of course, I had to leave a heart in the center:) It can be done with using a cookie cutter while baking in the oven:)
