Oh The Places I've Been

Hello everyone,
Happy Halloween... A couple of weeks ago, sweetheart and I took a drive to visit our daughter's friend.  He lives in a log cabin at the foot of  Mt Lassen. Before we went to his home we all met at the "Apple Festival" and enjoyed ourselves for a few hours. Here is a tour of the
Is everyone thinking about Thanksgiving? And all the wonderful baking we love to do.  One vendor had a fabulous basket of assorted nuts ready to bake with.  All cracked and packaged for those delicious Pecan Pies...
As a gardener. I'm always on the lookout for different and interesting plants. I love the look of this one. 
This vendor had some new plants to me and I could have bought more.
But this is the winner. A Virginia Creeper...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. I planted it on one of the post of my pergola. Hopefully it will grow up the post and display this beautiful fall color next year.
The entertainment was great. Who doesn't like fiddler's music.
Yes! Apple pies galore*
Beautiful mosaic pieces for the garden. 
Natural Handmade soaps.
Apples, apples and more apples.
A beautiful day in the mountains of Northern California.
Now it's lunch time at "Bill's House"
Smoked salmon-fresh vegetables and dip, crackers and salsa, stuffed mushrooms and delicious hot cheese spread on wheat bread.
Hum! Hum!
After lunch we headed to a local winery.
Alger Vineyards and Winery. 
Located at the gateway to Mt Lassen.The owners embrace the idea and practices of biodynamic farming. 
The tasting room is located right on the vineyard and offers incredible views of the vineyard and Manton Valley.
I was so happy to take a mini road trip on a beautiful fall day.
Thank you for visiting and thank you so much for the wonderful comments you leave every day. I try to bring interesting content and beauty to my blog as often as I can...

  5. I have the Virginia creeper on my front porch, it spreads all over. I have it coming up all over the place. Pull it when it begins to trail. It will go underground and come up unexpected. It has wrecked my pines. It is beautiful though. Just keep it controlled. It looks wonderful on fences.It's colour in the Fall is beautiful. Just be warned though its not called creeper for nothing.
