Glorious Fall Colors Abound

The trees on our property have finally decided to put on their Fall show.

This is the view stepping out the front door of the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn.

Looking to the left on the front porch.

Looking down the driveway of the inn.

Looking at the driveway entrance from the sidewalk.

Looking down the front of our property from the street. Notice the "Chocolate Shop is Open" sign! Life By Chocolates has created some fabulous Fall chocolates with the flavors of pumpkin pie and homemade marshmallows.

Looking down the sidewalk in front of the inn. The sign is the logo for our Hudson River Valley Art Workshops. We still have some wonderful art quilting workshop this year, plus the retreat week- Nov. 1 - 7 - when anyone is welcome to sign up for 1 night to 6 nights and make use of the spacious studio to work on whatever they wish (painting, quilting, knitting, scrapbooking, writing, collaging, etc.) and get great meals, too!

The Red Squirrrels Are Going Nuts

As winter approaches it is always fun to watch the squirrels in their annual frenzy of gathering nuts. There is one little red squirrel that always sits in the same spot every day in one of our trees and works on chewing the shells off walnuts.

I wish I had a better zoom lens for a close up, but you can still see his cute little face!
