What a great weekend!
Saturday with our grandboy,
who is 4 and a ball of energy;
and Sunday out to the Camp Springs (a local town) Herbst Tour. Herbst = autumn in German.
The sun was shining, the pumpkins and corn stalk decorations were out at the farms; the kids were petting the animals and riding horses; and the trees were blazing with color along country lanes. Couldn't ask for a better day for it this year. Sweetie and I toured the places from 1 - 4 pm (the tour actually was on from noon - 6 pm on Sunday).
This photo was taken at the top of the lane to a photographer friend's house. He had his gallery open to sell his photos Sunday.
There was everything from working farms (horses and miniature herefords), craft items, food, tons of pumpkins and gourds at the huge Neltner farm where they had live bluegrass music. There were even 2 local wineries open for taste testing and 2 other vineyards for touring.
I had to bring home some local goods = honey, a mini pumpkin pie (in the witchy bag), and a huge chocolate covered marshmallow. YUM!
Lots of tasty things for the mouth and the eyes.
We even toured our local animal shelter. They weren't accepting adoptions Sunday so I was safe and told Jerry that before we went - just in case there was a little black dog there wanting to come home with me!
There were a few big dogs and one cat who seemed perfectly calm and unconcerned about all the people coming and going and the dogs barking. That made me feel okay = not a lot of animals waiting for homes right now.
This is a quick shot of poke berries. I liked the sunlit greens and purples.
I hope you had a great weekend, too. (And I did see a really cute little Boston Terrier at one of the horse farms but she belonged to the owner so I could only pet her for a while and then come home.)
