It was still pretty green here last Thursday when I made my first apple pie of the season. But for some reason the smell of apple pie coming from the kitchen is a signal to Henri that leaf peeping must begin immediately.
Just needs the top crust and into the oven it will go. But my mind was on an early rise in the morning so this is the last you will see of the pie. For the record, it was YUM.
The next morning, we were up before the crack of dawn and headed to the Western mountains of Maine with our sights set on Rangeley. The foliage was at full peak, even though my attempts to capture it were thwarted by the glare and shadows created by the noon day sun.
While parked and enjoying our picnic lunch, we watched as this seaplane descended and I managed to find my camera just in time to catch a shot of it's water landing.
One of Henri's captures.
He even found a white pumpkin for me in Rangeley and then later, surprised me with a carving. Check out my newly created galvanized pedestal stands that I'm using to display my pumpkins. All it took was riveting some affordable hardware store parts together with some flan pans I found at Goodwill.
The green pumpkin is a cross between a buttercup and a blue Hubbard. Using dried hydrangeas and zinnias from my garden, I had fun arranging them into fall vignettes, tucking them into a rustic, wooden tool caddy I found while thrifting.
This corn is from last year. Glad I saved it as the colors are still pretty vibrant.
I took this picture just yesterday over in Blue Hill of the blueberry barrens just coming into color. Soon it will be peak foliage here too.
A shot from Sorrento Harbor, where rain is in the forecast, after our nearly week-long stretch of warm, sunny weather.
But this rain is really just a figment of my imagination. The above photo was made using a free stock texture found here and pairing it with my own photograph by using the software program called Gimp that you can download for free here. Pretty cool, huh?
