I'm right behind you. Will do a little this weekend and add to it until it's all done by Sept.

Maybe a little fall color will chase the 100+ blues away. Looking forward to cooler weather and my first bag of candy corn.

Fall is my favorite season, but I'm not ready to decorate in that theme yet. I will change it to an Apple Theme first, probably for the month of September, then go to Fall.

I'm with you Ceejay. Apple season first and then fall. Then Halloween, thanksgiving and Christmas. We have so much winter I don't want to rush the season.

Well, Shannon, I sort of "link" them. But growing up on a farm with tons and tons (literally) of apples, we started apple season before fall was in full swing.

Judy, I love that you are a trail blazer this year!! Your gourd set-up is just beautiful!! Sometimes, you just have to make the inside change when the outside is still hot and humid. As you all know already, I started August 1 with my Apple Season stuff which I call my Pre-Fall Warm up! Hehe! What is totally hilarious is that we don't even grow apples down here in the heat and humidity!! But, I grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia and apples are in my blood!!!

Shannon, you and I can link apples with late Summer because the early varieties are already ripe in North Georgia and Virginia and most likely your northern most section of SC. So, we can celebrate apple season right now and be totally within the boundaries of normal.

Bonnie, I think you have a great agenda of roll out! That is exactly how I like to do things so there is time to enjoy each part of the celebrations. it stays warm here for so long sometimes that Fall is not very apparent. You just have to pretend and go North if you want to have a real taste of true Fall. Luckily, my youngest daughter lives in Asheville, NC and we like to go there in late October when the Fall is absolutely gorgeous!!

Keep us posted Judy of other beautiful decorations you pull out and set up for the season!

Winnie...You are so sweet...but I have to admit...the gourds are not mine...just a picture I got online...to start the Fall season off with some beautiful color for the forum...I have gotten into closet cleaning for the Fall and have not gotten as much done as I wanted to this weekend...but it is still August so I have some time yet...I just really enjoy the fall leaves...gourds...and pumpkins etc...I am not too much for Halloween at all so I just enjoy all my Fall décor from mid August through Thanksgiving...I will try to post some pictures as we go along...Thanks for your interest in the topic I started...can't wait to see what everyone else is doing!!!

Hugs!

Judy,
I do NOT do Halloween, in any shape or form, so my decorations will be fall/autumn . . . after my apple theme!

I took a photo of the Williams-Sonoma catalogue that came in the mail. Isn't this the prettiest apple pie in the apple Le Creuset dish you ever saw!!



If only it didn't cost $165.00 for that dish.sigh. I love the way they made the lattice with leaves too. Just gorgeous! Did anyone else see this and fall in love?

That dish is beautiful..l but that price!?!? Ouch! One day I would love to try my hand at fancy lattice work. Right now I am happy to get a pie on the table, lol.

CJ - we do not do Halloween in any shape or form either. So my Fall decorations generally consist of apples, leaves and pumpkins ;)

Here is a great little list of all the things I love to do in the Fall!



What else can you add to the list? How about bobbing for apples? Making Brunswick Stew with cornbread and apple butter? Sleeping with the windows open and quilts on the bed? Wearing flannel shirts? Porch sitting in the evening with hot tea or apple cider? Ok, your turn.........

Judy, I love the picture. I only wish it were cool outside, then I'd decorate today. I may wait until the last week of August. I love decorating for fall!!!!

This morning I could not help but laugh at my children... they have decided they want cooler weather, so they are wearing pants and 3/4 or long sleeve shirts! When I told them it was going to be too hot to wear that (we are suppose to hit 90 and feel like the upper 90s with real feel), they looked at me like I had three heads and informed me they would stay inside then. Guess we adults are not the only ones itching for cooler weather ;)

Love your autumn photo with the glimmering pond, Judy!

Shannon, I had to laugh about the children's comments. They must be reading our minds!! It is awful here today with the heat and humidity. I see where some of the states north of Georgia will have a bit of a cool down with nice evenings. Let us know if porch sitting happens with a cooler breeze? It will give the rest of us HOPE!!

Ouch . . the price of the apple pan! Mercy me! It is a beautiful pie though!
I don't really make pies, never have much. But I do make a wonderful apple crisp which I like even better, anyway!

Our neighbor gave us a colander full of summer apples which I just made into applesauce this afternoon!

Yum, homemade applesauce is one of my favorites too!! I like to make mine with apple pieces in it so it is sort of chunky.

Judy, I have had fried apple pies many times up in north Georgia apple country. They are delicious, but my favorite is still a good apple pie.

While this is not about decorating, I found these apples at the grocery store that were labeled "early" and came from Washington State. They are soft, a bit tart but good. So, yesterday while it was pouring rain with the sun still shining and the humidity literally falling from the sky, I decided to use my apple bakers and make an easy favorite fall dessert of mine.



I core the apples and then stuff with a mixture of chopped walnuts, Apple Pie Spice mix, brown sugar and dried cranberries( or raisins are good too). Add about 1/4 cup water to the dish and bake at 325 for about 45 minutes or until apples are nice and tender.



We ate them for dessert and I added a generous spoonful of apple butter on top of mine and my husband added a drizzle of maple syrup on his. They were simple and delicious!!

Winnie what can I say...Yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs!
