…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.

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).
