The Colors in Cheshire CT are Just Spectacular While driving past an open field in Cheshire CT this past week I was taken by the show Mother Nature had going. I stopped and grabbed the Nikon and just walked over. To me it was just beautiful. The oak trees had their brilliant red tones. The maples were bright orange, and the rest of the trees just set the stage. Sometimes you just have to stop and appreciate the life around us.

  It has been a long time since I have been on a hayride, but my wife and I decided to do a Hayride At Norton Brothers Farm In Cheshire, Connecticut yesterday along with several people from our Church.  The weather was warm, and everyone one had a good time, especially the kids. While waiting to go on the Hayride At Norton Brothers Farm In Cheshire, Connecticut we went into the store and purchased some cider donuts and cider to take home, and also enjoyed looking at all the crafts, and painted pumpkins.       Then it was off to the Hayride At Norton Brothers Farm In Cheshire, Connecticut.  The hayride was through their apple orchard, but unfortunately just about all of the apples had been picked.  It was still a very nice relaxing ride, and one that I would like to return and do again ...
