What a perfect Fall day today! Hardly a cloud in the sky and cool. I needed a few things at the Belleville Farmers Market so off we went. The market vendors are under the two metal roofed structures. Everything you could need is there. Fruits, vegetables, baked goods, meat, flowers, handmade jewellery and clothing, preserves, cider..... the list goes on and on.
The Market is celebrating it's 200th anniversary next year. The location is central in the downtown being located behind Belleville City Hall, pictured here. I love visiting the Market. I usually come home with too much produce and we eat fruit and veggies for every meal.
Such a beautiful church spire.
We went the "back" way home (not the main highway). So much prettier. I believe these silo's are something to do with corn
As you can see the corn has gone brown.
The soy really turned brown this week.
We pulled over to the side of the road for a moment as we thought we heard the paint cans in the trunk tip over. No, they were alright. The trees are starting to change here and there.
Every time I see milkweed fluff I think of a story my Mum told me. She was born in 1934 so remembers WWII. During one of the war years kids were told to collect milkweed fluff for parachute linings. My Mum did her part and collected a bag full. She can't remember what happened to it after that. What a tedious job that would have been!
We swung by our old neighbourhood to see what our old house looked like. We lived here from 1986 to 1996. The tree in the backyard was planted by Chuck in 1987. It was a little stick that had been growing under the front porch. I guess a squirrel had buried some keys and this one rooted. We dug it out and planted it. Looks like it is doing very well.
This tree is already fully changed.
Coming over the bridge looking towards the second bridge and Murray Hills.
I was standing at the dining room window and noticed this leaf seeming to float on its own. Then I saw the cobweb. It hung there for quite awhile.
My pot of impatience is still going strong on the porch. I will try and nurse them along as long as possible.
I hope you are able to get out and enjoy this day if it is nice where you are. I'm off outside to putter.
