Leaf Peeking and such!

Hubby and I decided to take a day to do some leaf peeking.









This year our autumn landscape has not been quite as vibrant.   Perhaps it is due to lack of frost.


 We managed though to find some lovely scenes that made us stop and take a peek.













There were some quaint places too that made the trip so pleasant.    This little shop served wonderful soup and the best coffee.    



 The shelves were decorated with art and antiques.












In the corner was a piano.   Wonder if anyone plays it.   Hope so.


To finish up our adventure we found an old cider mill in operation.  They sold apples,  pears, grapes and of course cider!
        
   It was certainly a wonderful trip - so glad you came along.

  14. Glad I got to go along, too, by way of your beautiful photos! It is my favorite time of year, but here in Florida we haven't much color or coolness. Still, I have been here long enough to notice a slight change, and with a cup of cider in hand, I do feel like it it Fall here. Thanks for sharing!

  15. It looks like it must have been such a wonderful fall day and I love the drawing of the leaf and seedpods. I can't wait until there is finally some fall color here in N.C.

  20. How do you find those cute little out-of-the-way shops?! I've never been able to do that, and I think I'd love to! The photos are beautiful and I really like your drawing. Do you draw while on the trip? Or take photos to draw when you return home?
