This year is going by so fast. It’s amazing to the see the trees changing color already and have those smells that you know are Fall in the stores. The apple trees here on the mountain are almost ready for picking and it’s always fun to see the kids in the area making apple cider or applesauce with them. Here’s a poem I found online that I thought fit perfectly with this time of year:
A little red apple
Hung high in a tree
I looked up at it
And it looked down at me
“Come down, please” I called
And what do you suppose—
That little red apple
Dropped right on my nose!
Since Fall is here, and it’s my favorite time of year, I wanted to make something that always seems to remind me of the season – apples! Not only that, but you can even use this as a gift for your favorite teacher or friend!! They are super easy to make, and I think the hardest part was washing the bottles!! 🙂
