Here in southern California, we don't experience the climate change that brings blazing autmn foliage to northern regions. Our autumn comes in more gently - a little fog here, and little rain there, but mostly our days are still sunny and bright.

Our brilliant autumn color can be found at the Santa Monica Wednesday Farmers' Market, where the abundant harvest of peppers and eggplant blazes on the tables.


At one stand I found these tawny, striped melons - called Tiger melons. The size of a softball, they have pale white or yellow colored flesh.  What beautiful colors!
