Townshend, Vermont...

It was a beautiful day for our town's tag sale.  I manned the bake sale and we did very well, all for charity of course.

Strawberry Jam...

After picking and hulling eight flats of berries yesterday Tom picked another flat this morning before I was awake.  He hulled them and I made jam.  Twenty five little jems all in a row to be given as Christmas gifts later this year.  I'll betcha I've made thousands in my lifetime.  Canning is just something I never get tired of doing and my family never gets tired of receiving.

Strawberry Fields Forever...

Myself and half a dozen friends picked 80 pounds of strawberries for our annual WCO chicken bbq.  It was actually fun sharing this time together, helping each other pick a few for ourselves along the way.  What a great group of friends I have!

Then we hulled all 80 pounds.  They were really sweet this year and I have to say I snitched a few.  And I also have to say that by the end of this project my shoulders hurt.  Then I came home and hulled more for my family to enjoy.

Goodbye Cape Cod...

I caught the sunset on Skaket Beach last night.  It's still too early for tourists so I had the beach all to myself.

Corporation Beach...

I spent part of the day taking pictures at Corporation Beach.  It was a beautiful day with blue skies and hardly any wind.  Oh to be young again; I remember doing gymnastics.

Laurie, Shirley, and I spent the day in Provincetown with our 365 friends.  We parked on the pier, chose a really nice place for lunch on the water and ended the day with gelato.  What nice friends I have met by being on 365.

The sky was gray all day so we didn't have a lot of good photo ops.  But the day was memorable just as it was, clouds and all!

Wychmere Harbor

I spent today wandering around the Cape with my sister.  As you can see we couldn't have asked for a nicer day.  

I feel so at home here.  The beach roses were blooming everywhere.  They are not fragrant but blowing in the wind they are stunning.  The Cape is such a beautiful place that describing it never seems enough.

Bonnie's Hands...

I stopped by a friends house the other day and she was just coming out of her garden.  I said, "What a cute frog."  And she said, "It's not a frog, it's a hoptoad."  I learn something everyday.

The Old and The New...

Sometimes I almost get myself in trouble.  Noticing these two bridges, I wondered if this would be a cool photo for my 365 project. 

So I drove my Scion though the surrounding field (yes grass over the windshield) and found myself focusing from the bottom up. My next concern was how to get the heck out of here!

Storm Clouds...

We've had a solid week of rain in the morning and sun in the evening.

When I was out looking for something to take a picture of, these dead trees caught my eye.  Just as I snapped the sun came through the clouds and lit up the foreground.

This is one of my favorite pictures so far.  At first it reminded me of "Gone With the Wind" when Scarlett is pulling up carrots and saying, "I will never be hungry again!"

Most of all it represents the reality of spring in Windham.

Vermont Meadow

After a week of rain, the sun peeked out today.  It was a dash between clouds to get a shot of this meadow.  This is the Vermont of yesteryear, just nothing but wildflowers, stone walls and hedgerows.

Running Bear

"Running Bear loved Little White Dove with a love big as the sky, Running Bear loved Little White Dove with a love that wouldn't die." 

Now they are selling seeds.

Spinning Lessons

The children from the Windham Elementary School visited Susan Persa's farm today and enjoyed a spinng lesson.  They were surprisingly interested in this old time craft.  Isn't this what we do?  The older generation teaches the younger generation the skills of yesteryear.
