I belong to the best book club. We are quite the varied group, we are 20 if everyone comes (rarely) and we range in age from mid 40's to almost 97! Some live in rural areas, some on small farms, some live in towns and villages. We come together for the better part of a day to talk books but we always manage time to catch up on our lives and happenings. We are artists and craftspeople, writers and "hobby" farmers, a couple are involved in local wineries and a couple are involved in film. We are such an interesting group! The best thing though is our book talk, we read what we want to and we share our books. It is like having our own livingroom talking library!
Last week we drove inland to Uta's, it was a beautiful fall day and the leaves were pretty wonderful. We drove through farmland and came across a farm and a pumpkin field with a herd of cows thoroughly enjoying a feed of leftover pumpkins. They were still at it when we drove back almost 5 hours later!
The cows enjoying a feast at DeLong's farm. It was a big field and there were a lot more cows, this one was quite intrigued that we had stopped to take pictures!

A stunning Bird of Paradise with a stunning view!
My books this month were the last in Gil McNeil's series "The Beach St Knitting Society and Yarn Club" and Leslie Crewe's "Chloe Sparrow" Both I enjoyed so much. At Uta's request we are all going to try and read something about World War 1 since the 100th anniversary is coming up. I am going to start with Anne Perry's "No Graves As Yet".
