Happy Fall!

The gosh darn "minimum" amount of pick-your-own Cortland and Gala apples from the orchard--a half-bushel! My DH was good enough to SAY NOTHING when he saw the sheer volume. He could have lit right into me, but didn't. Besides, he likes to bake really huge apple streudels. I see a lot of pie and applesauce and upside-down cake and tarts and give-aways to friends in the immediate future.

Unbelievably huge pumpkins outside one of the wonderful colonial houses in historic Deerfield. I hope the residents don't need to rush out the front door in an emergency, because them gourds ain't movin' outta the way.

Some of the "drops" that have fallen off the apple trees.

Squirrel in pumpkin, my porch. It's not this year's picture, but I like it.

Pumpkins in the fog.

My hatred of squirrels is legendary, but that squirrely pumpkin pic is terrific.

Ooohhh. These are lovely. It is enough to make me remember why I used to love the autumn. My favourite is the house being blockaded by pumpkins.
