Sweet Saturday: Apple Pie


I've been sure checking the apples from my garden that they are still fresh, so I have managed cooking and my family and I had delicious apple pie for Saturday lunch. We name it 'charlotte'. It's very easy to make it
You need :
1 glass of flour
1 glass of sugar (I put less sugar)
4 eggs
and of course, slices of apples


I put slices of apples on a bottom of a round pan and then pour whipped mixture of ingredients. That's all.
Oven 375 F( 200 C) 30 min
recipe here


I enjoy 'charlotte' with a cup of flavored tea. 
Do you love apple pie? 
What is your favorite one?

Wordless Wednesday: Last Autumn Flowers





Last autumn flowers colored my home in October cold days. I'm deeply sure warm season passes faster than others seasons at least in the Northern areas

Garden Blog Day in Mid-November

A real winter has came, it's ravishingly beautiful but it's just cold. Who live not far from the North, know what winter season is and how to dress well: winter boots, warm coats or down jackets, hats, scarfs and gloves (uh!). So I had dressed well and went to see my garden in snow.
First snow is always nice, soft, light and very white. My garden was completely covered with snowy carpet.
This winter coming has been such unexpectedly that not only I but many of my plants met first snow with leaves and fruits. They were suddenly winterized with thick snow. Look at the Celastrus berries and apples:




Some dry bush branches and grasses that dried up in October were snow-capped and slowly moved in the wind. Interestingly the snow seems whiter than grey sky on the photo below.


The empty hangers for flower baskets looked contrastingly with white snow on their black iron figures. The long thin branches of Parthenocissus swayed dropping last green leaves. 
The low 'niwaki' pines nicely looked dressed in snow costumes.


What is your garden in November? Do you prepare it to winter season?
