The leaves are beginning to turn here in Colorado so I took the opportunity to go for a walk with my mom and the dog and take some pictures. As I was snapping photos, I realized how much this reminds me of the Brambly Hedge children's book series by Jill Barklem. These were my favorite books when I was a kid because the images are so beautiful and I had all of the season series. I decided to theme my photos in light of the Brambly Hedge series so I have interwoven photos from the walk today with photos of the Autumn Story book.
These are hops (like for brewing beer). Since my dad is a homebrewer, my mom and I spent the afternoon picking them for him to brew. In fact, he used them today to brew a cream ale!
