Life's Little Instruction Book, page 136 + some photos of this and that . . .

My favorite thing about fall is the hard crisp apples from New York State. I took this photo while eating the other half.

Isn't this one of the most beautiful views you've ever seen? New Jersey has some surprisingly lovely estates.

The most beautiful path. Landscape architecture at its best! One can only imagine how long it took for everything to look like this.

The botanical wallpaper is perfect in this room. Wish I could see more. It might also be individual antique prints that have been glued to the wall.

An English gentleman dug this hand-shaped carrot from his garden, took a picture of it, and then cooked it for his daughter. In the USA, it probably would have ended up on eBay!

Such a beautiful family. I've always been fascinated by giraffes.

Thanks for stopping by the cottage for another page from Life's Little Instruction book and some random photos. ♥Rosemary

Sadly, I have only anxious, worrying thoughts if I awake at 3:00 in the morning.....
But I like the other two instructions(are we getting to the end of the book???)

All week I have been eating fresh, just picked apples and marvelling at how absolutely delicious they are, as compared to the older ones(all tasteless and watery) we have to eat later in the season. Wish they could always taste as crisp as when they first come off the tree in autumn.
