Apples Anyone?

We are home again.
Sigh.  Back to reality.  Back to schedules and school and laundry.
But I'm not ready.
So I'm going to find my happy place and pretend that I am still here:

Rocking on this front porch of my friend's farmhouse.  Isn't this restored home beautiful?
You won't believe the surroundings!  It is nestled deep in the NC mountains.  It boasts 3000 blueberry bushes and hundreds of these:
Yes, glorious apple trees!
One word to describe the orchards that surround the house:  Picturesque!  
Ah, the cool mountain air, the rustle of leaves, the buzzing of bees ... oh, wait.  I don't like bees.

Time to snap out of it and enjoy the gift of today.
While I'm munching on these:

Wow...I am so jealous (but not in a sinful way, of course)! ;-)

Love the house,the front porch, and the orchards! It looks peaceful and inviting. What a blessing to get to enjoy God's creation, even if only for a short time.
