This dram evoked autumnal feelings in us all, even though slightly different ones. From walking inwoodland searching for blackberries and mushrooms to grape harvesting on a warm afternoon and pickingapples in an orchard; eventually we all celebrated harvest festival. For that we were eating plum, orange and almond cobbler, toffee apples, caramelised pears and pumpkin pie. With water the first signs of winter appeared, the cool wind and the comforting aromas of spiced hot apple cider and vanilla scented candles drew us inside enjoying a cherry pie with a nutty crumb crust and real whipped cream.
