Wordless Wednesday (The Hot Orchard Edition)

This is Week One of the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. This week’s theme was “green.” On a late September day when it was reasonable to expect an “autumnal” feel in the air during a visit to a Connecticut orchard, we got, instead, weather that didn’t seem all that different from Florida’s! The vista seemed to be holding back on the fall colors that will surely arrive soon:

Green was not the only star of the day:
But the promise of natural foods, bursting with potential:
And blushing beauty:

Gave me something to “fall” for despite the heat!
These pictures were taken at Lyman Orchards in Middefield, CT.
The Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge is hosted by Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud, Alicia of Project Alicia, and Rebecca of Bumbles & Light. The challenge welcomes photographers of all skill levels. Next week’s theme is yellow! The linky for yellow week will be up starting on Friday, October 14 (if I have the schedule right!).
