Color abounds in Pennsylvania on this beautiful autumn day. I start the day outside my front door.
Not frost, but dew on the pumpkins in the morning!
Emma, our cat, demands attention...often.
Off to The Springhouse...pumpkins everywhere. I got milk and cookies! (More on The Springhouse later!)
Off to the farm and the blueberries have turned red~ gorgeous!
The gorgeous fall color is coming to life out at the farm. There are hundreds of blackbirds in the trees right now.
Hundreds. They look great against the pink and reds.
Odd mushrooms growing at the farm under some pines. I have no idea if they are safe, I'm guessing not, since no critters have munched on them. If in doubt...don't touch!
This toby tree is in the front yard by the house. It's huge! You can see the corner roof of the house on the left amongst the leaves. I can't get the whole tree in the frame of this picture!
Corn or beans can be found in just about any open nook and cranny around here. It's quite a pretty sight.
Leaving the farm to head to Mingo Park, one of my other favorite places. The black angus cattle are enjoying this gorgeous day too.
Maybe my favorite picture. Going down Epler's Hill towards the Truck Stop, this bend in the road is very inviting.
Ahh, I arrived at Mingo Park to find some more color! Imagine a wooded park running through a valley with a wide and shallow creekbed running through it, the kind with great rock jumping and skipping rocks and crayfish and toads...and you have Mingo Park. Beautiful.
The shallow and wide creekbed.
Look here. I'm standing by the creek, the road above. Look above the guard rail at the rocks jutting out...and the rather large tree growing on those rocks! Now who ever said Pennsylvania is boring and sleepy!
This is the retaining wall under the roadway that has the tree growing above the rocks! This wall has been here for as long as I can remember, and we've come to this park since I was a very little girl.
The Henry Bridge. One of the anchor's of the park, the other being The Ebenizer Bridge on the other side of the park.
Haha...and the day ends with soccer. They usually end with soccer! She's gotten quite good at her corner kicks!
Well really, the day ended with the milk and cookies I got at The Springhouse.
