Art Notes

Step foot into a crisp autumn evening at Apple Hill. The light fall breeze, coupled with the bountiful harvest of pumpkins and colorful mums lining the pathway inspire feelings of serenity and comfort, only found on a tranquil Autumn evening. As the sun sets, brilliant colors of gold, scarlet, lavender, and blue paint the sky and reflect upon the transforming landscape and foliage. Autumn memories of picking apples from the trees and walking through the pumpkin patch looking for just the right pumpkin are captured in Autumn at Apple Hill.

In the distance you can see the quaint village where you’ll find the bounty of Autumn: candied apples, homemade applesauce, apple butter, apple fritters and turnovers, and fresh pumpkin and apple pie.
