These limes caught my eye; I love how Whole Foods stacks their produce so beautifully. I wanted to take more photos, but I got the "evil eye" from the produce manager. Next time, I am after the party-colored peppers...

One of my favorite places to wander and photograph is University of Virginia's Blandy Experimental Farm. The State Arboretum of Virginia is located within the Blandy farm. It is a wonderful four-season experience. My favorite time, of course, is Autumn. Blandy is home to a large grove of ginkgo trees. For a brief period in October, the whole grove is golden; the tiny fan-shaped leaves painted gold. The golden leaves don't stay long on the trees, and when the leaves fall of the tree, it's all at once...and the base of the grove is blanketed in a glorious gold carpet.

I live in the last bit of rural part of Fairfax County, VA; just outside of the tiny town of Clifton. Yates Ford is a winding, narrow road; go one way and you pass Paradise Springs Winery, and the road eventually ends at Hemlock Overlook Park and Bull Run. Go the other way, Yates Ford zips onto Clifton Road, then zags back off to the left (never could figure out why) and eventually you wind up back into the hectic/traffic-filled Fairfax County.
