I’m not sure what these are as I picked them up on clearance a couple months ago never quite sure if they would do anything. I noticed that they had bloomed and love the framing with the old bird feeder hanger and the plant basket.

Tatting

I’ve wanted to learn how to tat for a long time. My grandmother tried teaching me in the early 80s before she died in 83 but I never quite got it. I just recently found a book I could understand and figured it out. The shutter here is my grandmothers…

Gurdon Bill Waystation

Once a year in the fall Ledyard opens up several of the historic sites in town for the 2nd grader’s Ledyard History tour. I happened to catch the weekend opening today even though it was rainy and cold..

The waystation was built in 1816 and acted as a local store, meeting place and stagecoach waystation as it was located on two main roads between Norwich and Mystic. It happens to be about 3 blocks from house… I’ve taken photos of the outside several times but this is the first time I’ve had a chance to take photos inside. Apparently when Gurdon Bill passed away the parsonage across the street, the waystation and a nearby barn were all bequeath to the Ledyard Congretional Church. The Station was boarded up and pretty much left as it was… The old barn and stable is in severe need of repair – perhaps I will walk down on a sunny day and take some photos of the outside of it as I’ve never taken any of the old barn and stable.

Cherry Blossom

A cherry blossom in the fall… I apparently have a seasonally confused cherry tree. While backing out to take Jon to school early this morning I noticed this lone blossom on the tree. After getting home I took this shot. A cherry blossom on the first day of fall….

Really happy with how it turned out esp the comp. It was a bit frustrating taking it. I kept hitting one of the many leafless branches of the tree and causing the blossom to shake…

Happy Autumnnal Equinox 🙂
