so many orchards, so little time

It's apple harvest time here. Much awaited, and much celebrated! Little stands open up on country roads, and the larger orchards entice families with wagon rides, pumpkin patches, petting zoos, and of course, pick-your-own apples.

A new breed of pumpkin is in town. Love the warts!

One is missing!

.....and Chrysanthemums. Lots of mums for sale!

Looks like a bumper crop this year!

It wasn't a very nice day. In fact, it was chilly and damp!

Do you think I'm pretty?

The Jamaican apple pickers return every year to harvest the crop.
