Fall in New England - there is a bit of a chill in the air, the leaves are putting on their autumnal show, apple orchards are bursting with fruit, and our thoughts turn to… alpacas! I kid you not.
We spent a good part of Sunday at the AlpacaFest hosted by Southwinds Farm. Alpacas are camelids, which makes them relatives of camels, dromedaries, llamas, vicuñas, and guanacos. Alpacas are valued for their wool. Their wool is exceptionally soft. Not only that, but they are beautiful animals.
This is a photo of Turtle Pond, which is in walking distance of my home. The trees are turning, and it's starting to look like Fall...

While I enjoy Fall, it's my second favorite season. I prefer Spring. Possibly because I like to garden; possibly because winter is over; possibly because I was born in the Spring.
