Fall is moving along and the colours have been spectacular this year but, sadly, the leaves are dropping very fast now and many trees are bare.
It is time to put the garden decor away.
Last Saturday was a beautiful warm sunny day and we walked down to the local orchard to watch the pie contest. There were only a few contestants and the pies were pumpkin and apple. I had a sample of the winning apple pie after it was all over and it was delicious.
The judges had a great time tasting the samples and this judge's plate was empty when it was all over.
Afterward I went for a walk down through the orchard to take some pictures. I was heading for that row of colourful maples.
There was a sweet country wedding held right here a few weeks ago.
I walked down the road through the orchard to this spot of brilliant colours.
The pumpkin patch is down here too.
Look at that view!!
We are getting a big rain and wind storm today plus it rained yesterday. It has a tropical feel to it and is 16C and we may even get thunder showers later on. We sure need the rain in our area as it was a dry summer. After this is over the temperatures will drop into the single digits Celsius but we've had a good run of beautiful fall weather up until now so I won't complain.
I'll be back next week with more fall photos but I'm pretty sure there won't be as many leaves in them as they are falling off in the wind and rain. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
