|My overflowing peck of staymans.|
Staymans are my favorite because they are so very tart. They're a great cooking apple and I make my best butternut squash soup with them in late October and early November. The stuff is so good it will make you cry.
The walk up the side of a mountain was exhilirating and the the clear, blue sky lovely. Now for some serious football.
|Lingering color and a blue, blue sky.|
|These allergy-inducing weeds have their own charm.|
