Harvest Scene

At the front of a farm store near Port Perry, Ontario

Fruit and vegetables fresh from the farm are delicious this time of year and for sure this store sells the tastiest, crispest apples of all! OOPS! Just wish I could remember which variety I purchased though. Do you have a favourite variety of apple?

And now...
Kostas at Fotoseasons has very kindly given me this award.

As part of the award rules, I must list six things I like a lot, so (on my less serious side):
coffee, tea
walking in the rain
nature in general
OOPS! that's way more than 6?

OK, on my more serious side in alphabetical order:
a. Compassion
b. Ecological awareness
c. Family and friends
d. Integrity
e. Life-long learning
e. Wisdom
(and much, much more...)

And six things I do NOT like, again in alphabetical order:
a. Aggression
b. Bigotry
c. Commercialism
d. Excessive competition
e. Manipulation of the vulnerable
f. Unethical advertising

As for passing this award on to six other bloggers, how can I chose? There are far too many wonderful blogs out there that I love to visit...and YOU know who you are. ;-)

I am very proud to accept this award from Kostas as I think his photography is OUTSTANDING! Kostas has a marvelous eye for what makes a great photo. I find his work inspirational and I am striving to one day be as good as he is. To see for yourself what I'm talking about, check out

Thank you, Kostas!

As usual you have posted a stunning photograph.
I like your thoughts on the awards. Like you, I feel honored when someone awards one to me, but I just cannot bring myself to pick one fellow blogger over another so I never pass them on.

I also liked your skywatch post on the Bittersweet. It is a colorful plant which is very attractive and as you mentioned an excellent source of food for birds.

That picture is so Autumn! I love it.
Empire apples are my favorite. They are grown locally right here in New York state.
Have a wonderful week-end.

Great Harvest scene shot. U think my favorite apple is a Gravenstein but really a crisp juicy one will do. MB
