An Early Autumn Morning In Asti

 After being away for several weeks, we discovered that fall has officially arrived in Asti.
The first clue is the Mulberry Tree.
It's dropping its leaves and soon will be just a skeleton.

 The grapevines are just crispy leaves and shriveled unpicked grapes... for the birds that are still hanging around, including the turkeys, who clearly didn't get the memo that Thanksgiving is just around the corner!

 I just love how the early morning light casts a warm glow on everything.

Especially the light in autumn.
Isn't it beautiful?

Yes, autumn has officially arrived in the wine country.

Mr. A and I are spending the weekend winterizing the house and preparing for our first Thanksgiving celebration in Asti.  
It's going to be epic!

Pin It!

Fall in our area is a beautiful thing. I have the same trees as you do in my backyard. They cover our little patio this time of year. I feel so blessed to live in this beautiful place.
