Saturday Summary



     I gathered a few pictures in my travels this week:
     

A much needed walk down a local bike path.



A defunct train station,
but a picturesque stopping
point on the trail.
Colorful sumac

A stoic little bird unconcerned by bikes and people.


I had to stop and admire a surprising display of tiny birdhouses outside of our town library. 



This morning we were visited by a lone turkey who stayed for hours, apparently entranced by our car. 
And have I mentioned that we've hung the latest masterpiece by my husband resident artist?

  2. At first I thought your bike path was a narrow road. Now I know that it's a first class bike path.

    1. Yes, it's only a mile and a half one way - not much for a bike ride - but challenging enough on foot.

  3. I don't like to walk around my little neighborhood in the county because not everyone restrains their dogs.

    1. That's a shame, Ellen. I remember the days of my childhood when dogs pretty much ran free. Happily, it's not a problem here.

    1. Thanks, Delores. It's based on a photograph we took one summer at Cape Cod when we stumbled onto a blazing sunset shining onto a small lake.

  8. I love frog legs and glad they are available in some places. Be very afraid...I have an entire box for bones! One of my favorites pieces is an old faucet connected to a deer bone that is titled Bone Dry.

    I'm a little strange but never bored.

  10. That is a really fine picture. I finally found a way to follow you on my Reader, because I wasn't getting your posts through Google+ (which I rarely visit). Yay! I like those pretty birdhouses, too. :-)

  12. Your husband is an excellent artist.
    I like the little birdhouses, I used to have one and left it in the tree when i moved away.

  13. That little sparrow on the rock has already puffed his feathers against the oncoming cold.
    The little abandoned train station looks perfect to be moved to another site and refurbished as a cottage.
    Dreams...
