Temperatures took a real nose dive here over the Thanksgiving holiday but everyone stayed warm and cozy by the fire and enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving feast. I hope you also had a wonderful holiday spent with family and friends.
It was the first snow of the season yesterday but, unfortunately, I didn't have the chance to take many photos. I had not finished putting up the winter deer fence and, as bad luck would have it, about three or four deer descended on the garden Thursday night. Sigh. We finished the fence today and so hopefully things are now tightly sealed off and secure
The maples that drape over the rooftop of the Hidcote-inspired folly at Juniper Hill never fail to give their best in the autumn.
I don't know the variety of this crabapple. It's ancient and was here long before we were. However, it's the most prolific fruit producer of any crabapple in the garden.
This mature Japanese Maple was already here and well established when we moved to the farm and it was quite large then. I’m not sure what variety it is. Most likely ‘Bloodgood.’ Whatever the cultivar, it puts on quite a show every fall and it’s always a bright landmark whether you’re driving to or from the farm.

This Angelica gigas has given up its purple summer color but is still beautiful. Many umbellifers, like Angelica, continue to provide interest in the garden if left standing through the autumn and into winter.

It’s rare that I can get a small group of sheep to concentrate on anything except eating grass but I was lucky to get this shot with my iPhone before everyone resumed their chomping at the ground.
A little Photoshop magic allowed me to take this street scene titled “Wishing,” which was shot in the middle of the day, and make it look like early evening. Photo was taken in Chipping Campden, UK using a small 6 megapixel Nikon D50 which still takes great shots!
One of my favorite subjects for fall photography is this red barn located in Hancock, New Hampshire. I have taken many shots of it over the years from many different angles.
One of my favorite spots to photograph in the fall is this little pond on the outskirts of Hancock, New Hampshire. I simply love the way the hayfields surround the pond, with it’s colorful foliage, all set against the backdrop of that lovely little hill. I have photographed this scene many times over the years and it never fails to please.
A row of maples in a wet area at the foot of Crotched Mountain in Francestown, New Hampshire begin to turn color before many of the surrounding trees located on drier land.
Monet would have been perfectly happy had he been able to be in New England during foliage season.
Autumn truly is the best season in New England!
