Apple picking

If there's one thing I love to do in the autumn, it's apple picking! On Sunday the weather was perfect for it - sunny but cool - so I persuaded Scott to come apple picking with me. We took the dogs with us to Eddisbury Fruit Farm and came back with a huge bag of bramley apples for baking with.

Pepe & Nina thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it now means that summer is officially over and autumn is here. Next on my list of autumnal things to do is go pumpkin picking! I baked some yummy apple crumble bars with some of the freshly picked apples, but I shall share that recipe with you at the weekend. What's your favourite thing to do in the autumn?

  14. That sounds so nice! I don't think there are any apple orchards in my area, how sad. My grandpa has an apple tree in his backyard, though, so once you post that recipe, I'll be ready!

  17. You're the second person this week who's recommended apple picking - I'm thinking I really need to try and find somewhere I can do it, it seems like such a lovely "Autumnal" kind of thing to do!

  24. I just love every last thing about autumn!

    When you're in Edinburgh you should go to The Rose Leaf http://roseleaf.co.uk for cocktails in teapots, their gin and homemade ginger beer is blissful. If you're down that way Sofi's Bar is lovely too. It's a little Scandinavian haven tucked away in Leith. Take the number 22 from Princes Street right to the front door.

    As for shopping you will love The Red Door Gallery and Godiva in the Grassmarket.

    How long are you here for? Maybe we could have a cup of tea and a slice of cake? I'm desperate for some book recommendations for taking on holiday.

  26. This looks like such a nice day out :) Your dogs are adorable too. When Autumn rolls around I enjoy the return of scarves and crunching through leaves, but will have to give apple picking a go now I think! x
