Fall is my favorite time of year! We had an early hard frost on Saturday night it was mid to upper 20's. Brrrrrr! The weatherbears said it was unseasonably cold, it usually doesn't get this cold till Novembear.
Last Sunday was a beautiful crisp fall day. The trees are really just starting to change by us. But after that cold snap they will be changing fast. Mom was wanting to take a ride and see if there was more color on the trees. So dad drove us north to Woodstock to see what we could see. On the way we did see a few trees that were changing.
Scruffy and I heard mom on her cell phone talking with Mrs. G. who lives in Woodstock. She was asking about an apple orchard and how to get there. Pretty soon Mr. G. called on dad's phone to give directions, dad handed the phone to mom since he was driving.
We saw some more pretty trees as Mr. G. drove us to the orchard.
here, the orchard doesn't seem to have their own website. Mostly just things written about it by other sources.
They have big horses, I think they were Morgans, that pulled a trolley wagon ride through the orchard and pumpkin patch. We didn't ride on that and we didn't take a picture of it either. Mom said we had to save camera battery for important pictures of me and Scruffy picking apples. They also had great big flat bed wagons they pulled by tractors to take people out to the orchard to pick their apples. Again no photo, as me and Scruff rode in a tote bag.
Once we got into the orchard, my dad wasted no time in reaching the apples, even if he had to climb the tree. I think they had ladders available for the way up high apples, but would my dad use one?
Mom said she thought they were kind of high priced, but not the highest she saw listed for local orchards, but plenty high. I think they are rolling a charge for the experience. Scruffy & I were tired after the apple picking so we rested in the car while the people went and shopped in the new big barn. They bought Raspberry fudge and some Amaretto fudge, Corn Salsa and a surprise for my Brother T.. Mr. & Mrs. G. bought some of the same, but in addition some warm apple donuts. The donuts were yummy, they shared.
Grr-bye for now,
