Ah, sweet autumn. The colours almost passed.
our giant ash are already past their glory since I took this picture last week.
On Thanksgiving Monday we headed out for a stolen afternoon, stolen because there is so much work that really ought to be done on a good weather day off but, golly, we needed a day off.
First stop was at this roadside farm stand. Proceeds are going to the restoration
of this giant red barn
what a great idea.
It was hard to find the bright reds of maple and sumach that we so enjoy but I got this fading maple as we drove by, hence the blur.
And what's an outing without a visit with the friendly farm animals?
This dear girl was fast asleep
as I closed in for a better shot
Another cow as we turn a bend in the road, closer to our destination.
You can see the sea in the background.
the rolling hills of a Minas Basin farm, again the sea in the background.
But now another stop
because when else will I have a chance to meet such a friendly pig?
Toes together she roots with her hard -tipped nose for tidbits.
Around another corner, Blomidon. Quite the address.
Tomorrow, more pictures of our afternoon out
with a peek at the piece I started in a most tranquil setting.
taking our cue from this pleasant autumn day,
peace on earth
