  1. Our apple trees are absolutely LADEN with fruit this year. I love apple crumble the best.

    I use Nigella's crumble recipe from How to Eat. Scrumptious!

  3. Dear Mrs Sutton, I should never tire of gathering bounty from my own garden. Your apple harvest is very impressive and is so very useful for any number of receipts. The onset of autumn seems to fit the need for home baking. Alas, however, I am no cook. Your pie looks and I am sure tastes delicious!

  5. Your pie looks absolutely delicious!

    Thank you for popping over from September Cottage and for your lovely comment, I see we may have some other lovely mutual blog friends:-)

    You will enjoy living in the country. We have been here for a few years now and would never move back to London - the occasional visit to a gallery or exhibition is enough for me!

    Off to have a lookie round Hill House - I'm sure I will become a regular visitor.

  9. Hello,
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Wow, your house is absolutely stunning so I very much hope you will indeed share more of the interior with us. That will be a privilege indeed!
    We are drowning in apples this year. My parents were staying with us last week and my mum peeled and cooked loads of them, she never seems to tire of it, my freezer is fit to bursting. We still have loads on the tree and ground, too. Hmm, if only they were cider apples!

  14. Your house looks amazing! The apples do to... ;-D It seems like those of us who do not have apple trees of our own harbour romantic dreams of having them, whereas quite a few who do have trees struggle to make do with the harvest... but I agree with you, eating fresh pickings from your own garden, whatever these may be, is such a delight and hard to beat!

    Thank you SO much for your incredibly kind words on my blog - a heart-warming surprise!

    Warm regards,

  17. Thank you for your comment on my blog. So nice to see a new face, and such a nice suprise to see you are in the UK. My partners sister lives in Cobham, Surrey and I love it over there. Your home is absolutely gorgeous, and I love the button back chair in your drawing room. I am the same in that I put on the wellies and would wear a dress, and I love a cardi (lost count at owning 22!!)over a bikini. A great read and enjoyed your 8 things about you, and happy you finally decided (after 5 months) to start this blog. Look forward to enjoying more of your journey. Have a lovely week.

  26. Thank you all SO much for your lovely comments about the apple pie (and Hill House!) - relieved to hear that I haven't bored you all with tales of my apple picking - it's obviously still such a novelty for an ex-city girl such as myself - as is baking - both of which I hope I shall never tire of. All the best. xx

  27. I had an apple tree when we lived in Italy and my neighbor would come over and pick apples at make jams and pies. Of course, she would also give me a couple jars of jam and a pie or two. I never did make my own pie, but at least i provided the apples:-). xx
