September: Breezes Tasting of Apple Peels

“The breezes taste
Of apple peel . . .”
— John Updike, “September,” from A Child’s Calendar

This is the season for apples.  We have plenty on our apple trees this year.  Yesterday morning I picked up those that had fallen over night and juiced them for breakfast.  I added three carrots, half a lemon, and some leftover blackberries.  Yum!

  1. What a magnificent illustration in the book! Who is the artist?

    • Rosemary Says:

      The artist is Nancy Ekholm Burkert. This is the 1965 edition of the book, which I checked out of the library.
