OUR WORLD - There's Gold in them thar Hills


A little rain and viola! the countryside turns gold.


I mean it, really gold.


As you can see, we are very near a grape growing district.
These were taken near Woodside on my usual route to town.


Whatever is going on in your neck of the woods,
make sure you enjoy it.

  3. Gorgeous golden landscape!

    For a moment, I was stumped, the vineyards around here look so different this time of the year. Then it came to me, you are heading into autumn. ;-)

    Big hug,
    Merisi

  6. I too was thrown by why there is gold - though still don't understand why things turn gold when it rains. Whatever the reason - it's a lovely colour and a lovely landscape.

    1. After the long dry, we were afraid the leaves would fall before they had a chance to develop colour.

  15. Beautiful! Hurray for the rain! I hope you get enough to have the trees and fields in good shape for winter. We had some rain and a little warmth and some of our bushes burst out with color (grass got real high while we were away for the weekend). I put some pictures on Lew's pics. Some of our bushes are not doing so well and we will be looking for new ones soon.

  20. Pure gold for sure! Vineyards are so lovely to look at. Around where we live in Oregon there are many and we love touring them. (And of course once you're there for the scenery, you might as well try the product!)

    Happy for your rain.
