Autumn Leaves

img_4277img_4289img_4300img_4309P1020563New England gets all the press, but leaves in this area are pretty spectacular at this time of year.  Our garden is beautiful, lots of leaves turning red, gold or yellow.  And not just ours–everywhere we are seeing lovely colors, though not as much as some years since it has been so dry.  But it is feeling like autumn and on our way to Mount Vernon we pass pumpkin fields and stands selling apples and pears.  We don’t stop at those, as we have our own fruit trees.  The peaches and plums are over, so it’s apples and pears now.  I just took an apple/pear crisp out of the oven and  the whole house smells like cinnamon, apples and sugar.  And I recently bought a pumpkin cookbook, so guests will be having pumpkin, apple or pear muffins, pancakes, coffeecake, waffles and whatever else I can come up with.  Great time of year!
