Daily Painting, "Apple on the Tree" 6x8", Oil Original, SOLD

My favorite place to be in the fall is North Carolina.  A few weeks ago we were visiting our favorite orchard there and found the trees full of gorgeous red apples.

The orchard was over run with customers buying fresh apples, cider, jams and jellies, and my favorite..............fresh baked goods!  You have not lived until you have bitten into one of their fresh apple cider donuts or apple fritters or pies.  I was lucky to get out of there with only one sack of donuts in my arms.

As a kid in Ohio, fall brings memories of fallen leaves and hay rides.  After the hay rides we always had hot donuts and apple cider, so I love repeating this tasty treat every fall.

Even here in Florida, there is a tiny taste of fall in the air.A few days ago my friends and I met for lunch and SAT OUTSIDE instead of seeking out air conditioning.  Actually, I always think the October and November are the best kept secret in Florida.  Gorgeous weather and lots of outside activity.

J'ai beaucoup cette dernière publication qui me ramène à mes souvenir lorsque je vivais à Port-Grimaud dans le sud de la France et que mes enfants étaient petits. Nous prenions beaucoup de plaisir à aller cueillir les pommes à Vidauban chez un producteur qui nous confiait des paniers. Nous récoltions nos fruits que nous pesions et payions en partant. Nous pouvions faire un pique-nique dans la propriété, c'était fort agréable... De merveilleux moments ! trop vite passés !...
Une belle peinture pour illustrer vos bons moments à vous. On a envie de la croquer cette pomme ! De belles couleurs autour d'elle qui la mettent en valeur.
Gros bisous à vous.

Ps : L'hiver est- il agréable chez vous dans votre région ? je vous demande cela car avec mon ami nous souhaitons partir cet hiver et nous recherchons un lieu où l'hiver est meilleur que chez nous.

Gros bisous encore.

Nice color choice on the blog. It is really easy on my eyes and I have bad eyes too so that's a really big compliment lol
