Some fun at the Publick House! We had a wonderful dining experience there too!

Sky Watching makes me dance!

How can I scare crows when I'm this cute?

Great photos! Who can paint the hills like that! I love New England in the fall. I remember going to Sturbridge with my girl scout troop a few years ago....

That is one happy scarecrow, Maria! It made me smile. Those fall colors on the hills are just breathtaking. One of the things I miss about the East Coast is the beautiful array of colors that fall offers.

Diana said...

Love Di

What lovely scenery you have up there. I'm just thankful that, though we're not far north enough for a really severe winter, we still enjoy all the colors of Fall.

Referring to it as God's glorious artwork seems very appropriate.

everything else thrown in said...

oh, the color on those hills is incredible--this is such a beautiful time of year!

Thank you, Maria, for always being there for me. I honestly feel like we have been friends forever.

Yes, hold those you love very close this weekend.

Hello, dear Maria,
The contrast of that vivid blue sky and those orange, red and golden hills is stunning! I adore that cute scarecrow, too. She makes me want to kick up my hills and dance along with her! It looks like a wonderful time for all. Thank you for stopping by for a visit today. You always brighten my whole day. Vicki
