Apples Wait to be Pressed into Cider- October 2009

This is a reblog- originally posted October 2009.

Sand Hill Berry Farm Cider Press- Bushels of Apples- October Sunday-Mt. Pleasant, PA

Red Currants and Red Raspberries their specialty, not to mention the gooseberries to make jam. Raspberry pies, and free raspberry sundaes. We roasted hot dogs over a fire, and marshmallows to make s’mores.  

Autumn color in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania is hard to beat. The barn was filled with the smell of apples.


Original four comments.  Zero likes .    My friend Dorothy passed in 2010.  A Memorial Poetry Reading is being planned for this November 13, 2015.  

Ruth, what a wonderful angle to take your picture to include indoors, outdoors and I can almost smell the apples.

  1. No amount of editing can fix the original four comments. Wanted to include them, but can’t find a way to fix the formatting that looks fine in the preview. Ruth

  2. I love Sand Hill Berries at the Farmers Market on Mondays …always hope to get out to their place. Glad you reposted!!!

  3. Such a beautiful choice for the first week in the fall. I love everything about this composition- the color , the framing, the memories.

  4. A beautiful fall image capture; it’s very reminiscent of the midwest, too.

    I’m sorry about the passing of your friend.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
