An Autumn Ramble

Find Jamie in this photo.




Autumn is ending, but a walk with the cats still reveals intriguing sights. 


The creek takes on color as leaves drift down.  I played in this creek as a child in summers when it wasn't so icy.


Claire found a warm spot at the corner of the old log barn where Dad stored hay. Now fallen in, it was built by Mr. Cable in the 1890s.


A few apples cling to branches. Sour and hard in October, this late apple is now crisp and sweet, despite frosty nights.  I shake one down to munch while I walk.




The deer will wait near an apple tree for apples to drop.  We have over one hundred wild apple trees on the place -- and lots of deer.  Bears come through every evening, too.


You never know what you'll run across if you take a different route.

A tramp over our 66 acres is enjoyable, even more so with friends along.
