Hallmark “trees”

The sappy, saccharine Hallmark movie Falling for Vermont has everything: a Famous Author, a cozy bookstore, a gazebo, even a “town meeting.” It’s a bit like Gilmore Girls with amnesia. That is, the protagonist has amnesia, not the movie itself.

An additional treat: the opportunity to watch for the same four or five gold- and orange-leafed artificial trees as they travel from scene to scene to scene to signify fall. Look, here come two of the trees now.

We saw most of Falling for Vermont last night. Me: “This has another hour to go.” Elaine: “That’s not a problem.” The movie airs again on October 20.

I tried the Hallmark channel again, on a TV in the motel in Duluth, but just couldn't... so I just have to enjoy that YOU enjoy these movies.
LOVE the trees. The children look artificial too!

If autumn trees followed me around a small town, I'd be nervous.

Ha! They always keep at a reasonable distance, so as not to blow their cover.
