picking the perfect apple for apple pie

We went to a local orchard that is near our house this morning, a perfect day for it. Here are some picks from our trip, including the apple pie I made with the apples
beautiful views - leaves are just starting to turn
I love the way the rows of trees look so inviting
these look good to pick

homemade apple pie - yum!

Giant Mantis

I was startled saturday morning by this thing on the bathroom window! It has to be the biggest praying mantis I've seen!

Fun times at "A Day in The Plains"

Yesterday at "A Day in The Plains" was a blast. Met some nice people, the weather was absolutely spectacular and got to spend the day with my hubby/roadie, without whom, I could never do the shows - he is a great help. I was very encouraged by the fact that The Plains paintings I did were a hit, and I sold my first original painting at one of these events. Paul & I were so beat, we slept until after 8:30 this morning! Thank you everyone for all the nice comments and to those who made a purchase.
