Finding beauty in the details

Fall is back. The air is crisp. Apple picking has started and the leaves are taking on their autumn colors.

Day 291

#EveryDayAPhoto, Day 291: - A hibiscus leaf is a palette of autumn color in the Town of Tonawanda.

Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes are showing up at roadside stands, farmers markets and pumpkin patches around Western New York.

Great Pumpkin Farm

There are hundreds of pumpkins for sale in all shapes, sizes, and colors at the Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence.

This year, oddly-shaped, unique pumpkins are very popular, perfect for decorating and for photographs.

Wacky Pumpkins

Fresh, crisp apples are available for picking, eating and baking.

Sanger Farms & Bakery

It is apple season at Sanger Farms & Bakery at 852 Youngstown Lockport Road in Youngstown with 10 different varieties for apple picking.

A fall outing wouldn't be complete without tasting local cider.

Clarksburg Cider

From elaborate to traditional, cider is the taste of autumn, and nothing goes better with fresh apple cider than a warm doughnut.

Smith's Orchard

They're making cider doughnuts at Smith's Orchard and Cider Mill at 4960 Mapleton Road in Pendleton.

I hope you can get out this weekend to enjoy the fall treats from pumpkins to doughnuts and apples to cider.
