It all started on Sunday at the Renaissance Festival.
We had laughs with old friends Dirk and Guido,
Good music served with our dinner,
And we saw a not so impressive knight.
It was all in good fun...
Just ask the mud-splattered pirate!
I saw a balloon on the way home, to boot!
The work week began in a fog :-)
Silos rose like castles in the mist,
Making them blaze with light!
These were gorgeous October days
With spectacular sunsets!
The last of the corn stood tall, awaiting harvest.
I sensed that the season of flowers was almost at an end.
After a busy week, Saturday came at last,
Highlighted by maples bursting with color!
It was a great day for a wagon ride,
Or for feeding goats...
Very spoiled goats
That know how to work a crowd!
There be pumpkins aplenty in these parts
And awesome ice cream!
We saw beautiful horses on a family farm,
And old barns still standing proud,
Waiting on the cows to come home.
Some of the sheep have been shorn,
While others are getting woollier...
If such a thing is possible!
They graze with enthusiasm, though the grass is parched,
Knowing very well that winter soon will come.
