Red Ridge Farm, is a delightful place to visit. Since the sun was bright, we made a point of getting out to enjoy the sunshine.
Besides wine tasting, there is a small but charming nursery and a gift shop, with tasty looking treats, books and all of those fun things, that we women like to look at.
For the past few days, the leaves have loosened their grip somewhat, due to the wind, causing them to dance and flaunt their beauty. The leaves on these trees are pretty much intact. Another week of color fun, here in the Willamette Valley. I will hop over to Dawn Miller’s to see what she and other color hunter’s have found.
sky so blue
with an open heart
and eyes to see
i thank the good Lord..
for what he has done
for you and me..
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
The days sneak up on me.. and then they are gone.. keeping my eyes peeled for Autumn color fun..
The Willamette River
Continuing on the fall color hunt. I am noticed that in the past few days, trees are dropping their leaves quickly due to the rain and wind.

Break time is over..
I realize that these are very blurry.. but as we drove by, and I observed these cows heading back to their barn, I was intrigued. What caught my eye was the one leading them back, like an obedient soul, knowing that it was time, to go back to work. I saw humor in this, but inwardly, I hoped that they are happy cows… or as happy as they can be in their living quarters and circumstances in life. There are quite a few dairy farms, that I have read about, that don’t treat their cows well. But that goes for many animals, and it makes my heart sad, and for humans, as well.
Even though we had been to this state park previously, I think two times, we hadn’t really explored the area. Champoeg State Park, is about twelve miles from where we live. We brought our lunch and I looked forward to what we would discover.
I am posting for Festival of Leaves, with hostess Dawn Miller, who gladly is carrying on this seasonal challenge. This will be a teaser post, because what I discovered beyond this point was very special. So I will leave you with a bit of anticipation, of what I saw and captured, until next time.
as you go about your day..
someone is needing to hear
what you have to say..
it may encourage
the heavy hearted..
and hurting soul..
your sincere words
will make a difference..
and let someone know..
I’m so glad that I live in a world where there are Octobers..
We are on week 3 of Festival of the Leaves. I was fixated on the geese more than color at the time I captured this. My heart gets excited when I see them fly. But change is happening.. Please check out Dawn Miller’s blog, to see what she, and other participants are sharing.
