I promised to share a few more photos of our autumn foliage. I still have one more "batch" to share after this.
Pink Lady apples - the type of apple trees to blossom and the last to ripen. Crisp, bright and bold they almost hurt the eyes with their vibrant colour. These came off just last week.
Like a crazy yellow/orange shag carpet, the fruit tree varieties lay like a carpet on the hillsides.
It really does look like a little "Valley of Heaven" - doesn't it?
Almost like a FIESTA of yellows, browns, greens and every shade in between, all the prettier for the complementary turquoise blue sky.
These Peach leaves are as jewelled as the slices of peaches which got preserved will appear in the dark days of winter.
Right down to the ground where they shimmer with dew which barely has time to evaporate during the cold November days.
More to come soon!
