Here is one of the country roads we explored , can you see the tinge of color that is happening with the leaves , some have changed more but for the most part it is just beginning to happen . We did come across one tree that had the most beautiful colored leaves so I jumped out and took this picture .
Aren't they an incredible color , and such perfect leaves , can you tell I love trees !
Another common sight this time of year is the blueberry fields are turning a glorious red , just love this , there were a few blueberries left along the edges , you can see them in the lower half of this picture but they are soft and only good for the bears , you could actually smell them fermenting .
Are you hungry yet, perhaps you would enjoy an apple , we came across an old abandoned farm with at least a dozen apple trees , of course I had to get out and pick a few , apple jelly on my mind ;-) What we didn't realize until we got closer to the apple trees was there were some blackberry vines that have been undisturbed for many years to the point they had grown right up into the apple tree branches .
I am picking blackberries here not apples , I had never seen this happen before but it made for easier picking . So are you wondering just how many blackberries we picked .A bowl of black gold !
So you must be wondering about the apples , yes we did pick some but we came unprepared for this event so I was literally stuffing them inside my shirt to get them to the car , not a pretty sight so it was a good thing no one was around . I haven't tried them yet but they are perfect not a blemish and no sign of worm holes just a few had a little bite out of them from the deer that obviously call this orchard home and can you blame them , food aplenty.
So that was my afternoon but now I must share the evening skies with you , oh they were amazing so I quickly grabbed my camera and ran outside on the deck first then out the front door so got two different views of this magnificent painted sky.
