We had frost last night...and that reminds me that I forgot to bring in my two palm trees, so I better make myself a note to check on them first thing in the morning.
As you can see from the picture above the leaves are on their good behavior and beginning to show more signs of fall. I just hope we don't have one of those windy thunderstorms that blows all the leaves off the trees at once, before they really show their colors.
Here's a little shop we stopped at. It was full of a bunch of crafty stuff...you know the usual knick knacky stuff and some really nice quilts. The log cabin was real and even had an old screaky floor in it.
Right next to where I parked my bike, while visiting the above gift shop, Jimmy spotted a Persimmon Tree and brought me over some small persimmons to eat. I don't like them, but I gave one a try. It was nice and sweet but when I was completely finished with it suddenly my mouth puckered up and my tongue felt like it was coated with something yucky & dry...I looked in my mirror and my tongue was coated with something white that wouldn't even wash out with water. I had to scrape it off. Am I making you sick yet? I still don't like persimmons!!! I layed them on my fender to take the picture and they do look ripe.
Here's another picture of trees that I thought were pretty. Today we saw several areas that were breath taking, but there was no place to pull over and stop...So I couldn't take pictures to show you. Whenever we came to a pull off where we could stop, the trees were still green and without color changes.
We stopped by to check on the status of this old log house. I had posted this same picture on September 5, 2006 and said I would keep you posted on its progress.
Well...here's what it looks like so far. Red tin roof, some new windows and wood siding on the front. This is as close as I have gotten to this house and if I ever see anyone there, I'll ask them if I can take a closer look...but until then...this will have to do.
