Apples and asters: When they´re ready you definitely know that it´s autumn. The apple trees everywhere in the village are full of red-cheeked beauties and hardly anyone cares. Sob. I know it´s very much the city girl in me who thinks that every single apple must be harvested, but well. It´s just such a shame.
We only have one old apple tree on our land and my neighbor keeps telling me that we need to fell it because apparently it has some kind of tree cancer. Which may very well be but as long as it produces the most beautiful apples it will stay. It´s a small tree so the crop is manageable and the apples store well. I have no idea what variety these are but I think some kind of cooking apples, they´re pretty tart.
As for the asters - so pretty. They add so much color to a garden that is, at last, a bit tired. Have a good week! And promise me to take care of your apples.
