Another Trip and Autumn

Well I've been traveling again. This really is no good for my blog! I don't manage to travel and blog at the same time. I can't imagine what people do who have blogs about traveling. They are far more talented than I. Two of my very good friends from college got married last Friday and I wouldn't have missed it for the world, but heading back to the US so soon did quite a number on me, so while I get back to Paris time and back into the rhythm here, I will just share a few fun photos from out trip.

Despite summer drought leading to muted colors, absolutely nothing beats autumn maple trees


Edward Cullen, this means you!

Took D. apple picking for the first time

Someone in Western, MA is tired of leaf peepers!

But nobody is tired of golden leaves in the afternoon light.

(Thanks to D. for some of the photos)

Love that last photo! What would you say if I told you I knew of a farm outside Paris where you can go apple (or pear, or pumpkin, or...) picking? I'm afraid we may have missed the weather window, though.

Thanks Rosa!

Camille - No! Really?? D. had never heard of it in France before. I want to go!

I love the photos, you're right, nothing beats maple trees, at this time of year the colours are just amazing.

Actually, there is a network of them around France. I spent a solid afternoon figuring which of them were reachable by public transport and this is the one: http://www.cueillettedecompans.fr/

I really want to go, too! Maybe we should arrange a day trip soon. (I just noticed that they have quinces, about which I am inordinately excited.)
