Summer's End....


A Pinterest project from this summer -- And my Apple Harvest.
Not just a sample of the harvest-- the entire harvest. We had tons of blossoms on our apple trees but a Spring freeze  killed the chances of fruit -- Except of the two above in the picture.  Somehow they managed to stay tucked away and protected from the ice by other leaves and branches.  I don't mind .  there's enough fresh apples growing everywhere else in the U.P. and Wisconsin that we'll get some.  

I picked these two -- and told Don,
" Enough-- one for each of us...."

Summer walks, Garden weeding, and flower picking are all over and the season now changes to Fall.
Though the seasons change the players in our house are still the same...
There's Bruno


and Ripley

What a great project, and that's exactly two more apples than I got. LOL Our peach tree had lots of peaches, but since I forgot to spray dormant oil....they were more worms than peaches. Oh, the joys of gardening!

In Sweden ..at least here in the north we didn't get so many apples either... Some trees didn't even have any!!
Still no frost here..but we have had degrees below zero...so it's getting near of that white stuff to come!! Huh!

I sense a bit of sadness in you with the end of summer... but nothing a winning season for the GB Packers won't cure! Love all your pictures... such cute pups!
