Seeing Orange

So striking on sunny days against the bluest skies

Or underneath catching the light though the leaves

From a distance admiring the sheer immensity(for perspective, notice the bench swing to the right of the trunk).

Or jumping right in.

Getting Spooky

Eerie morning light.

Blood red pears.

Patch of white pumpkins.

The birds.

Getting ready for jack-o-lanterns.

It's shaping up to be a perfectly spooky weekend.

An Autumn Weekend

We've been soaking up fall with it's sunny days, blue skies, and temperate weather. The other weekend we had old friends up for a lovely harvest dinner party. We took a boat ride, enjoyed a delicious dinner, decorated Halloween cookies, and roasted s'mores over a campfire.
(Smoked apple cider and whiskey BBQ ribs, roasted root vegetables with fresh herbs, spinach salad with walnuts, roasted beets and fresh goat cheese, homemade dinner rolls. For dessert, apple tarte tatin with creme fraiche.)

The next morning we headed out to our favorite orchard for a hayride...

Some apple picking....

Feeding goats and pony rides.
Happy, happy times.
