A Bit of Autumn Happiness...

What a lovely autumn day in my garden! Why, thank you for stopping by for a sweet visits! My dear readers, are always welcome in my garden!

A few days ago, Mother, a few close friends, and I went for a visit to a local fruit stand named "Avela Barn," which is only open twice a year: summer and autumn. In the summertime, people may go berry picking and the peaches and nectarines are in season. There is also a candy/ice cream parlor open, and two sweet little stores that sell trinkets, jams, cookbooks, and so much more!

In the autumn, the apples come into season along with lovely pies, scones, breads, and turnovers being baked. People may come to see the animals, buy corn, pick their own pumkins, and have fun in the hay maze.
The bright and cheery sunflowers were in bloom:

Bright and cheery....
.....A bit of sunshine....
Sun flowers are one of my favourite flowers!

We also went to a small fruit stand named "Gopher Glen," where they sell bushels of freshly picked apples including Johnilicious, Heaven Sent, Fuji, and a wide variety ranging from the sweetest to the tartest of apples.
This picture reminded me of "Apples of Gold." :)

With Love and Blessings~
