(Almost) Wordless Wednesday


Late summer has been kind to us this year, with blue skies and plenty of sunshine! Sumi has been with us for almost a year now and she seems happier, more playful than when she first arrived. My pink hydrangeas are still blooming. I was gifted this gorgeous handmade placemat & coaster set by the lovely Claudia. Sweet surprise! Although our tree is still quite small there were plenty of apples to be picked - which I made into apples sauce, tarts and apple crumble cake (above). So delicious! I'm very sorry to see summer go...

Der Spätsommer hat dieses Jahr viel Sonnenschein mit sich gebracht. Sumi ist nun seit einem Jahr bei uns...trotz ihres Alters ist sie ziemlich verspielt und macht einen glücklichen Eindruck. Meine rosa Hortensien blühen noch! Eine süße Überraschung habe ich von der lieben Claudia bekommen - diese wunderschönen, handgemachten Sets und Untersetzer. Sie passen so gut zu mir :) Die Apfelernte war reichlich, obwohl unser Baum noch recht klein ist. Die Äpfel habe ich zu Mus, Galettes und Apfel-Streusel-Kuchen (oben) verarbeitet. So köstlich! Ich bin ein wenig traurig, dass der Sommer sich dem Ende neigt ...

  2. I'm with you, I'm sorry to see summer ending too. That hydrangea bloom is beautiful. Mine only got a couple blooms on it this year and they weren't very colorful.

  4. How wonderful that Sumi is doing better and better! The pink hydrangeas are gorgeous. For some reason we don't see that color here, just the blue and the white versions. That fabric of the coasters and placements is fabulous! It is sad to see summer go but now the tasty fall season will bring us apples, squashes and other delicious goodies. :)

    Sumi ist so eine Liebe, es freut mich sehr, daß sie sich gut eingelebt hat und glücklich ist ...ja, man kann es erkennen, daß sie es ist!
    Hab noch einen herrlichen Nachmittag!

  6. Beautiful Photos! Your Pink Hydrangea Photo is amazing! I don't think I have seen a Pink Hydrangea primarily in NY - they are various shades of blues or purples. The Pie looks delicious also! Thanks for sharing!

  7. What a sweet slice of life post! The flowers are stunning, and your apple dessert looks delicious. I'm so glad Sumi is doing well. It makes me sad to reach the end of summer, too. :(

    1. We are going apple picking on Sunday - wish I could send you a bunch of crisp NY apples.
      When my children were young I would take them and a few of their friends apple picking - at the time it was $5 a bag, so I would purchase a couple of bags for the children to fill. Now they are charging $35 per bag. Glad my children are grown - now they are treating me :)!
