We decided it was time to take a break from all the insanity and Afton State Park Minnesota was a perfect respite. Fall is definitely in the air!
The park is gorgeous with plenty of places to hike and birdwatch- also spend a night or two in a cabin, tent or yurt.
If apple desserts or just plain good eating crosses your mind, a quick trip down the road will suffice. Whistling Well Farm Minnesota is a perfect place to pick apples or purchase them bagged.
The dessert pictured above is Apple Crumble Slab Pie from King Arthur Flour recipes.
There are quite a variety of bees hanging out in the garden…
Of note, a few more blooms to report 🌞
Flower close ups! Is this the garden’s last hurrah?
A fierce thunderstorm swept through in the early hours and I still hear some rumblings of thunder. The little wildflower garden perseveres despite the downpour! On Saturday, a hummingbird stopped by to feed on the red blossoms 🌞.
There are a few new stars of the garden!
The secrets of the wildflower garden are slowly being revealed. I look forward to sharing updates. 🌞
