Serendipity Sunday – Road Trips


Yesterday, we drove to Watertown Minnesota for an Arts and Crafts Fair we were invited to at the Luce Line Orchards. 


It was a beautiful fall day with temps in the low 50s as we drove there.  We drove along the Crow River for a good portion of the trip, and marveled at some of the homes along the way.  But, the big draw was the river, the trees and the sumac which is starting to turn red.


Now, we thought about how in two to three weeks, how gorgeous the drive would be with the yellows, reds and oranges.  But, it was still a very nice drive with the green leaves still on the trees. 


It will be changing soon enough, and we can wait. 


Thank goodness, the snow that was predicted for late last week never came to fruition. And, even the frost warnings that meant we had to cover the tomatoes and move other tender plants into the garage never came either.


To everything its season, so we know it is coming….. We can wait…..


Hope you all have a great productive week!



Best, Ron

Nice, Ron!   One small disappointment about living in Florida... we do not have Four Seasons.

Glad that you had a fun and productive day Ron, yes we can wait a few more weeks for fall and winter.  I have been enjoying the cool down that we have had so far.

Hi Ron - Nice trip. You guys needed some away time and I'm glad you got it. And here's hoping for a mild winter to make up for last year's beating.

Summer is still in full swing here.  Our leaves will turn starting mid october I suppose.  I'd love to drive up to the mountains one year to see the leaves.

Ron, so glad that snow missed you and sounds like a little Jack Frost is no match for your and your plants.  What a fun weekend and great drive that you enjoyed!

Hi Ron -- would you like to have someone in the back seat for the ride?   Those 50 degree temps along with the good company sound pretty good right now.   Looking forward to seeing your photos and learning more.  

Have a great week.

Ron, Your drive scenery sounds wonderful. I hope the Festival was good for your business. Glad to hear the bad weather did not occur. Temps in the 50's sounds wonderful to us as it is still hot and humid here. Have a great day.

Ron Marshall it's hot as ever where I am! Triple digits if you can believe it. I'd love some 50 degree weather about now.

Hi Ron, It sounds like you had a great weekend. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons and the changing colors of the leaves is one of the most spectacular things I will remember about growing up in New England.

Ron, it's way too early for snow.  I'm glad your forecast was off! They're predicting colder than usual temperatures for North Texas this winter.

Good morning Ron, it is a lovely 65 in Missouri this morning and the trees are starting to turn into a glorious burst of color.  Later today as the temp goes up to about 80 I will be taking a few photos along the way to my appointments.  The sumac is very beautiful here too this year.
