This past Saturday was gorgeous in our area. The temperature was in the 70’s and the skies were perfectly clear. We started the day by going for a run and then did a bit of gardening. I’ve been itching to get some pansies planted. Pansies will soon brighten the pots the kitchen door, the planters hanging from the deck, and the planter leading to the screened porch.
I hope these will grow quickly. I found the Old Virginia brick under our Magnolia tree this summer. I’m not sure how it got there, but I like it and have it on display. It needs a small pumpkin on top of it!
After gardening, we headed to the lake thinking it would be a perfect day for dock sitting and a boat ride. It was pleasant to sit on the dock but it was cold! Instead of boating, we decided to visit a Bedford County orchard.
We decided to visit Johnson’s Orchards since we’d never been there. The drive there offered beautiful mountain views. Sharp Top is to the left and Flat Top to the right. Both are great hikes.
Johnny Appleseed greets visitors to the orchard.
Apples of many varieties were available for purchase. Mr. SP picked Gala.
Gross’ Orchard was on our way home, so we decided to visit there, too. They have a great store that’s fun to browse.
It was pretty much a perfect fall Saturday!
What’s your idea of a perfect fall Saturday?
