Apple Season

One of the most striking apples on the farm is the Katy apple. They're so bright red and shiny that they seem fake; like a tree from a film set even though you know you found them from climbing over two gates and walking down a very wet, grassy path. Thomas's dad doesn't plant all of his Katy trees in a row, but rather mixes them in amongst the Bramleys, so you walk by tree after tree of green apples until you almost seem to stumble upon this mirage of vivid red. They're the first ones picked on the farm so we always have to be quick to get pictures of them once they're ripe--this tree was picked the day after we took these pictures! It was tricky enough capturing the Katys since our first few attempts ended with us huddled under the branches as it bucketed down rain and we knew we didn't have many days to snap them before they would be off the branches and piled high in crates! It's been quite the wet September over here, but we've still been making the most of it. There's too much to see around the farm to let a few rain clouds keep you trapped inside all day...



  1. Summer's still my favourite season, but I love fall produce, especially winter squash, pumpkin and apples! This post has got me so excited for the delicious recipes incorporating apples I'll be trying out!

  2. I love these pictures. I've never seen apples so vividly red. How amazing! Also, you're my style guru. I SO love your outfits and how you pair things together. I'm always amazed at how well your outfits come together. I want to be as good as you someday, and I'm trying. I love that it's fall and tights are back in. That's my absolute favourite look. Thanks for the link too...I saw a few bodysuits on that site that I'm ordering now. You're the best!

  3. Those apples look so amazing, I want to eat one

    PS... Your fall photos are always my favorite! Ugh, I just love how all the autumn colors go beautifully with your hair!!!

    1. Aw thanks! Autumn has become my favorite season for a variety of reasons, but it's funny I think other people always loved my autumn posts before I even realized I liked them more than other ones! It's definitely a big season for me now; I look forward to all the different parts--apple picking, plums, pumpkins, etc! :p

  7. I've just come across your beautiful blog and had to leave a comment. Your photos are amazing and the colours so vivid. Also...I'm very envious of your hair, so vibrant :) I'm really not into clothing but I'll definately be reading your blog in future, you have such a great style!

  8. This is a beautiful post Rebecca! I too am excited for the abundance of fall! This is when the Rose Hips are on their way, apples and pears heavy on the trees and all my herbs are to be harvested, dried and stored!
