Autumn Leaves

"The leaves fall patiently
Nothing remembers or grieves
The river takes to the sea
The yellow drift of leaves."


All of these photos were taken around my home~ the colors are beautiful & rich, I love it.

Flavors of Autumn

Peppers & tomatoes at the end of their growing season. 

 Chestnuts are available at the laiki.

Our pomegranates are so sweet and juicy, mice have eaten most of them before we could pick any.

Mr. George gave us beautiful grapes from his vineyard. 

My neighbor is growing pumpkins. 

Apple-Cinnamon muffins...the children's new favorite treat.  

Persimmons...so sweet and beautiful. 

The best dessert I've has this autumn...κυδώνι με χαλβά (baked quince with halva). Absolutely dreamy. I can't wait to recreate this dish.
