muted autumn colors
Took the scenic route on the way home today…..I never get lost. I just end up taking an ‘alternate route’. The majority of our trees are conifers, or evergreens, so our autumn colors are less exuberant than other places. Reds are rare except for the occasional vine maple or imports planted in a landscaped yard. The overcast skies probably added to the rather somber tints.A cute little creek near Gravelford Road… it will undoubtedly swell to greater proportions once those cloudy, overcast skies really let loose.This is the scenery you miss if you stick to the highways…Farms nestled in the valleys between the foothills of the Coastal Range.Some of our farm country where “Century Farms” (those that have been operating for at least a century) still seem to keep going in spite of competition from Corporate Farming (Agri-Business) practices…. These are some of our Organic Valley (co-op) farms bringing you milk from happy cows without the growth hormones and antibiotics and all that other nasty stuff.
Got Milk? 😉
