A lot of photos to share.
Hubby and I went to one of our favorite places to visit during the Fall season.
For the past 20 years, we have enjoyed this beautiful little place
but it has changed and a lot of stores have closed and
a lot more homes and business have been built.

They have a lot of fastivites during the months October - December
The have a neat store inside and also a wonderful bakery.
We took our boy too.
Apple trees are so beautiful
Hey-rides there too.
Our next stop
The little deer had no problem coming up to Opie.
This adorable little pup was so happy to see Opie.
This was a booth that sold sunglass for dogs.
No, we did not buy any for Opie.
Inside the village they have tiny stores that look like doll houses.
They are so cute. I would love to own one of these.

We brought home a bag of Jonagold apples and some apricot jam.
there is nothing like fresh apples just picked.

In the Garden.
I'm trying to grow carrots in containers.
I had four but the cutworms destroyed one of the containers.
The Fall weather here in Southern California is perfect for my roses.
I think we are past the extreme heat.
I thought the butternut vine was done. When Hubby went out to take the vine out, He saw two nice size butternuts.
Amazing. We will leave them on the vine to see if they will continue to ripen.
Last year we found a tiny shoot growing in our raise bed. It was a maple tree.
Hubby transplanted into a container and so far is doing great.
The leaves on it are starting to change.
One last thing.
I finished my laundry curtains.
I found the perfect fabric from my local
The top valance I used a large gingham. There was no marking on the salvage of the manufacture.
The pretty floral fabric is "bonnie & camille" line called Scruptious (Moda fabric).
I did line the curtains using
Next step is to paint the room.
Here is the book that I used to help be make my curtians.
