A little sweetness on this first day of September. Met this little cutie at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. Came seriously close to bringing him home with me.


Dear friends, I’ve decided to keep with this photo-a-day posting for the time being, with an occasional longer post thrown in here or there. I feel like I’m in a groove now and it seems to free up more time to visit all your wonderful posts. Comments are open once again, but please don’t feel obligated. I’m just happy that you stop by for a visit once in a while.

a September Greeting



Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

This was one of those perfect New England days in late summer where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy, through the ripening country-side, and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat, puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf and flower and human shoulders.
