The view from my kitchen window on the first foggy morning of this season. It turned out to be a beautiful sunny day, as is often the case when it looks like this at first.
An old school friend and I met last week after work for a walk in the park. It is beautiful no matter what time of the year, but you only see these fantastic colours now, in September and October:
That's my shadow there, and my friend's next to me.
Yes, it's that time of the year again; I've showed you the pumpkin exhibition last year already. This year, I did not find that much of it worth a picture, but I really liked this display in one corner of the hospitality area:
Sorry for the blurred picture, but the lighting was rather difficult by then. It was almost 6.00 pm, the time when the kiosk and temporary restaurant closes down, and there were hardly any people left. We still got ourselves a tiny bottle of pumpkin sparkling wine each, though, and enjoyed it at this table.
This year's theme for the pumpkin exhibition is Sports, and as I said, there isn't much I thought worth taking a picture of. The alpine ski display was funny, though:
And of course, the world's heaviest pumpkin is on display! It weighs, as you can see, more than 1.000 kg, and is so large I guess two people could comfortably fit inside if it were hollow:
Some more beautiful flowers in the park, their colours matching the season so well:
On Sunday, RJ and I went for a long walk (almost 5 hours altogether). We rewarded ourselves for our efforts with a delicious Sunday lunch at a Chinese restaurant. It was served so prettily, with a bird made out of a carrot:
On our way back, we came across this tree which was quite ahead of all the other trees in terms of colours; everywhere else is still more green than yellow, orange, red and brown.
The heron in the field was totally unfazed by people walking by, but I suspect not many saw him, he stood almost perfectly still.
That was my little September Selection - now October has begun, and I already have a back log of three or four book reviews waiting to be written and posted.
