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.

Yay! She's back blogging again. No signs of fall around here but it is nice to know it is happening somewhere. Nice photos, Babs.

I am flabbergasted that you´ve passed your entire life, until now, without seeing unprocessed apples. In any event, welcome home, not that you´ll be here long.

Yep, me thinks like wise. Flittering back to the Ozarks with peach or Pecan pie in hand to woe the General.

Woe the general? LOL--maybe that's the case.

Or perhaps "woo" the general? :-)

I'm back Kay! In my own house and pretty much over "la grippe" as Josefina says.
Felipe, I continuously seem to flabbergast. Good.
Ruco, he's NOT a general but a Colonel. But I AM the Colonel's sweetheart - its official, cause he told me so. And, I woo him every chance I get.....Woe to the Colonel.
