Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

I've been gone quite a bit for work again these past few weeks, but one of the things that has helped make up for it is the beautiful scenery I've seen along the way. Coming from MN, where we have a fabulous fall season, I have mostly been unimpressed with what I've seen each autumn in France. This year however has been fantastic. I'm not sure if it's due to the Indian Summer we've been having or what, but I am loving it!These vines produce some of my favorite Loire Valley wines:Trees lining my customer's driveway:
This scene brought out my inner child and made me want to stop the car and run around kicking leaves:Keep it coming France!

I had no idea this year was a special year for fall! The trees in the Loire Valley were breathtaking when we visited.

I've been stunned by the glorious reds that seem to be about. I don't remember seeing them quite so stunning previously.

I rather went off running through leaves and kicking them when I hit a huge hidden dog turd once and trying to get the muck off was the very bugger!

This IS an exceptional year. I've been living in France since 1975 and have never seen an autumn like this one. We've been picking a lot of mushrooms this year and the time spent in the forests of Chantilly and Senlis has been quite magical.
