This is my friend Val's front yard. I go there for a women's Bible study every Monday, and it's like getting a little taste of Heaven...Her husband built the sweetest house for them right in the middle of an antique apple orchard...
The great crescendo of fall foliage is over. Many of the brilliant leaves have fallen, and a lot of the trees are bare.
But the late October season has its own kind of beauty.

I love walking in this type of weather, with the fallen leaves swirling around my ankles, and the smell of woodsmoke in the air. Yesterday I took my iPhone with me and took some shots...
Up at the end of our meadow, processed with the app Picture Show.
I am still in awe of all the photo apps available, and how I can take a snapshot, and process it like I would in Photoshop, but right in the palm of my hand as I'm walking!

But after a long brisk walk at sunset, nothing feels quite as good as coming home to our own cozy farmhouse, where I know that, inside, the fire is crackling and the wine is being poured!
Bisous, mes amies,
