…and the leaves went crunch, crunch, crunch

Fall season in the chestnut forest

Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far.
~ Thomas Jefferson

The woodland colors are so vivid and dazzling in this period that it almost makes up for the diminishing amount of daylight hours. I like fall, but I love spring even better. We set the clocks back an hour this past Sunday and the following day, the doxie was in a huff when I handed out the daily mid-morning snack at what he perceived to be an hour late!

Speaking of late, back in September we visited our favorite pumpkin vendor at a sagra but I had forgotten all about these photos that MotH took with his phone. Zucche & Zucchette puts out a fantastic variety of pumpkins and sells most of them for only 1€/kilo. I nabbed the biggest Halloween pumpkin for just 8€ (although I’m sure that it weighs more than 8 kilos).

    Beautiful squash photos! Fall is indeed a beautiful time of year. I love pumpkin soups, ravioli, gnocchi, and of course pie!:-)
