Apples are ripe
Nuts are brown
Petticoats up
Trousers down! 

(a saucy old Suffolk saying!)

Celebrating apple day in our village, with a communal apple pressing on the great oak press, poetry and songs, cider and stew, apple bobbing, toffee apples and a baking competition judged by the fabulous Silvana de Soissons the founder of The Foodie Bugle.

  1. I do love a good apple day! Our local one isn't until October but we had lot of fun visiting an orchard this weekend.

  3. Emma, I always love to cross over the pond for a visit with you. Learning of Apple Day is a true delight and the saucy poem surely tops it all off.
    Happy Autumn.
