Just when I had all but given up on a crisp sunny fall day that I could get behind, Tuesday came. A trip to Averril Orchards was a must, and considering the craziness that occurs on weekends there, I knew I had to head over on a weekday. This is probably one of my most favorite spots in Litchfield County (and pretty much anywhere). Aside from the fact that they make the most fabulous apple cider donuts (yes, warm, home-made and straight from the oven) it is hands-down one of the prettiest hilltops anywhere on earth. As far as you can see, apple trees, blue sky, and sunshine. I didn’t come home empty-handied either. I bought plenty of cider (in hopes of making my own donuts) mini white pumpkins, and some pretty mums. Happy fall!
