Moving on over

I've combined my blogs, just look at the last post, over at Alchemy of Clay. Trying to have a life outside blogland. Not sure it's going to work....

Remembering last month

Nestled in a bit of a hollow just below the Blue Ridge Parkway, way in the distance, you can see the Altapass Orchard...from the Bear Den Overlook.

That's because the trees are pruned and round and green against natures brilliance of early autumn (a month ago).

Helen and I enjoyed our fresh home made apple pie in the sun out of the wind...on a porch overlooking much of the orchard.

We were entertained by the owner, Bill Carson, who shamelessly solicited our support to keep the Orchard going, as it is now a non-profit trust.

The many apples were certainly well as other apple related products.  I just wasn't too thrilled that the golden delicious apples were left on the trees for "you pick um" rather than being in a half-peck or bushel for me to take home.

I'm not exactly one of the "you pick ems" these days.  I'm a "you eat em."


  1. Wonderful photos - and I love your last line. I'm right there with ya! I'm not into picking either, but I sure am into the eating part!

  2. Schöne Bilder vom Herbst und den Farben dieser Jahreszeit.
