An Apple a day...

It's apple season here in North Carolina...

Pin It

Last year I decided to use apples in my fall decor because they are plentiful here and I'm just different that way:-)

You can find any variety you like here. We bought these Rome apples at the Farmer's Market.

My parents always buy several bushels of different kinds to make apple pies, apple crisps, and just to enjoy sliced with a little salt. I'm dreaming of my mom's apple pie already. She has perfected my grandmother's homemade crust.

I LOVE apples what about you?


If you missed my photography post, you can see why there has been a big change HERE

For more daily photos and conversation join me here on Facebook:-)

I'll be joining:


  1. Hi Anita,
    Coming your way via Savvy Southern Style. You photographs of the bowl of apples are stunning. They look like paintings.
    Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Hi Anita,

    Gorgeous pics. WELL, I am funny - I absolutely hate apples raw unless I eat them with warm gooey brie cheese. Weird, huh? I think it is the weird texture of them. HOWEVER..........apple crisp, good apple pie with excellent crust, huge fan - I even like brown sugared apples with French Toast, and apple jelly - but not apple butter. (I am a psycho.)

    Anyway - glad you enjoy your mom's crust. Yum.

    Happy Autumn to you and yours!!


  3. Beautiful photos, Anita. I just ate an apple ... wrapped in caramel and nuts. :) My family and I went apple picking recently and I'm going to bake something with them this weekend. Just haven't decided what yet.

  4. Fall definitely = apples. Love them with warm caramel for dipping.

  5. We love apples and live near a large orchard where we go to pick our own. My husband actually grew up on the farm where the orchard is today. Your vignette is so pretty. I really like the colouring in the apples and hydrangeas. Our favourite apple is Cortland for cooking and eating. Blessings, Pam

  6. Simply beautiful photos! My husband loves apple season when, for just a few weeks, he can enjoy his favorite - a very tart Jonathan!

  7. Yummy! Both in looks and taste - apples are indeed very versatile! Great pics! - your camera course has really paid off!


  8. Beautiful and inspiring! I like the mix of hydrangeas with the apple slices.

  9. Your pictures are always so beautiful Anita. Your apples reminded me of my Nanny and Pop Pop's house. I can remember going there when I was little and playing in the basement. They had a cellar where they kept apples and to this day I can still smell those apples down there. Thanx for helping me remember my grandparents today!

  10. Beautiful photos of some beautiful apples. I'm a huge apple girl, both in taste and in decorating. You are likely to see a display of apples in more than one room on any given visit. They last and last and last and are so much better than any faux stuff IMO.

  11. Visiting via SSS. I love your apple decor. I am not much for pumpkin so this is a refreshing idea. I am still waiting for apples to get here. We only have Grannies so far, but they made a delish tart.

  12. Lovely photos and I do love my apples, I eat one almost every day! Keeps the Doctor away, right?

  13. Visiting today from Facebook. I too have a love of apples - to eat and decorate with. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos with us today!

  14. Your photos are so pretty. I love the look of decorating with apples but have never tried it myself. Will have to try it out.

  15. What beautiful photos! Nothing says fall like apples and these look delicious.

  16. I love apples and the apple season. My mother had lots if them in her garden this year, but for some reason I had none, but I have pears!
