Chestnut Herbal School

Tiltillate

Written and Photographed by Juliet Blankespoor

It is truly feeling like autumn with the temperatures dropping down into the thirties and the light slanting low and golden. The air like a cool mountain stream: cool, clear and invigorating. Here is the second set of my favorite summer photos.

Enjoy, and keep it frisky folks!
