What has surprised me is the seemingly increase in fall color as we have gone west. I would it expect it of course if we were traveling north but actually we're going slightly southwest. And maybe it's my imagination that there's more color but the countryside is certainly beautiful.
Rain is moving in and out this morning, requiring me to have my coffee and do my writing indoors. We will head to Lincoln mid-day and look forward to several dry late-summer days. The weather people wouldn't lie, would they? Anyway, we'll definitely keep this place on our list of 'do returns.' Wish we were going to be here this weekend for the cast-iron cooking contest. I bet they give out samples.
