Monday Chat, Apple Harvest Time

One of the things I love about life in Luxembourg is the feeling of community and togetherness. Here in my tiny village we have plenty of opportunities to get together and any excuse for a BBQ or beer tent and we’re on it. We’re so lucky to have our own chateau too  which is a very pretty addition to the skyline.

The orchards around the chateau are managed by the villagers who trim the trees, plant new ones and collect the apples in the Autumn. A couple of weekends ago was apple collecting time and I went down with the family to help pick.

It’s all about the juice and of course we get to keep that too once it’s been processed.

Of course the Autumn is making the forest feel so magical at the moment. It can be misty, cold and wet but the forest stays the same all the time and my morning walks with Cooper are a real joy.

I know these beautiful colours won’t last long so I have to get out and make the most of it.

I hope you’re enjoying the Autumn colours where you are.
