It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

On the Road Again

I'm leaving for a few days. I'm going down to my son's house. It's time to see my family and get my "bambino fix".

When I went to Stockton a few weeks ago the mustard was starting to flower inbetween the rows of dormant grapes. Today I'm sure there will be an abundance of yellow in the vineyards.

Your post has made me a little homesick. Love the picture of the vineyards. I was wondering if it was were I went with my dad years ago to get the grapes he used for making wine. Have a safe and fun trip visiting with your son and grandsons. Madeline
