Of Peanut Dryers and Pumpkins


What says fall to you? Or do you prefer “autumn”?

I guess for each of us there’s a particular sight or sound or even smell that lets us know that fall is here.

Growing up across the highway from a dairy farm, the sound of  peanut dryers always meant fall of the year to me.  Many nights, the hum of those motors would lull me to sleep.

We met this little girl during our recent trip to Pennsylvania Amish country. 

She may not know the sound of a peanut dryer…….but she knows it’s autumn.
