Riding down Rt. 655 this afternoon was a lovely way to spend one of the last fleeting weekends of summer. It's starting to look like Autumn for sure but the warmth of the sunshine still echoes of summer.
Our first stop was at Natural Designs ~ Floral Studio and Gardens...a little gem tucked away up a winding country road. Owner Sally Yoder was gracious and her unique floral arrangements are really lovely. If you're interested... she offers workshops in floral arrangements. Visit her at Natural Designs Studio for directions and more information.
Some more of her pretties.
Rt. 665 is a thoroughfare for the Amish and Mennonite communities.
I consider myself privileged to be able to witness snippets of their daily life.
Working the fields.
We ended up at the charming Brookmere Winery where we participated in a wine tasting. We visited with the owners who generously explained to us their experiences of owning a vineyard and winery.
It was a perfect afternoon to spend with my husband as sultry summer days come to an end and gives way to cooler days bursting with color. ~amy
