Fall harvest

Making the usual Sunday rounds, I hit the farmers market, Target and Borders for a New York Times. Although there is that coolness in the morning air that lets you know fall is here and winter not far behind, we are in the midst of an Indian Summer. The days are hot. The skies are clear and sunny. But walking around the market there was little "summer" produce and all those wonderful fruits you expect to find in the fall. Apples, pears, figs, pumpkins ,winter squash and pomegranates. We have a border of pomegranate bushes in our back yard but they did not produce any fruit this year. Today is my husbands birthday I'm not baking a cake, but will make him brownies-those are his favorite and I rarely make them so they should be a treat. Even if it is hot out the house will still smell good with baking chocolate, one can never go wrong with that.


  1. Yum! Enjoy the birthday celebration - nothing like a good brownie!
    As always, thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures too.

  2. Beautiful photos Lorrie!!

    Chocolate rules!

    Happy birthday to the hubby!

  3. Belated birthday greetings to your husband!
    The farmers market looks wonderful again - love those yummy pumpkins!!! I love to cook with pumpkin... And those tomatos look delicious also! We don't have that kind of variety here in the rural area I live in - if you want "exotic" tomatos, you have to grow them yourself.

  4. What wonderful images! These are some of my favorite colors. Thanks for posting them.

  5. Happy Belated Birthday to your husband, Lorrie! Your photos make me long for cooler weather and fall in our neck of the woods! Hope you had a great start to your week!! Hugs, Silke
