Fall scenes at Kensington MetroPark



It was such a beautiful day today 77 degrees and sunny and everything just about at it's peak colorwise. We went out to our Kensington Metropark (about 20 minutes from our home) to just enjoy the Season. Of course, I had to sketch and paint--and took a few photos of things I knew wouldn't be around long. The Milkweed pods were all opened and spilling their fuzzy seeds. And there were 4 or 5 Cranes walking around (they migrate through here) and one walked right in front of me! This is not a close-up lens! They don't stand still long enough to sketch them--so I did the photo-thing.
I just love the Fall Wildflowers (?) We also stopped at Long's Apple Orchard and Barn on Commerce Rd. and had some Cider and Cinnamon-Apple doughnuts :-) Yum!

Don't you love the colors of Fall! I have a liquid amber tree right outside my deck, it warms my heart and soul.
