Scenes of Fall
Just before I left West Virginia this past weekend, a couple of things happened to remind me that Fall was just a few days away.
For one, the Canadian geese are honking around and eating the taller grass on the second tee. Probably driving the groundskeepers mad. I saw guys teeing off and the geese not even flinching or moving. I guess if you can fly that far with all the hazards the geese must face, a flying golf ball must not be much to cause worry. I found it a funny sight however. Grown men shooing at geese and the geese just chomping..........
Then a stop at an apple orchard nearby to buy apples, pumpkins, and, oh yes, fresh, juicy peaches. Oops, before I forget, a homebaked fresh peach pie. DE-LIC-I-OUS.
I must confess I had never seen Delicious apples without that wax stuff that they apply to the apples before they sell them. These Delicious red apples came right out of the orchards. I swear they tasted better. Probably my imagination.......I just couldn't resist sharing a photo with you of the apples and pumpkins. Such a fall sight.
I'm back in San Miguel where people celebrate the beginning of Fall at the Botanical Gardens with a Moon Ceremony.
But, alas, no pumpkins, freshly picked apples or honking Canadian geese - yet.
