More Fall In New England

I love, love, love this house! It's absolutely adorable! The only thing I don't like about it is that it sits right on main street. Besides that it's perfect! I can only hope it's as cute on the inside as it is on the outside.

The girls and I went on a little nature walk together. When we found an old picnic table I had them lay on it so I could take their picture. When Elise first sat on the top, it almost fell over! Needless to say the table as seen better days and it's well weathered. Instead they both climbed on at the same time so it wouldn't tip. Love this picture! Just look at those blue eyes! They didn't get them from me or their father. Yup, it was the grandparents.

Funny how they didn't even realize they were holding their hands the same way until AFTER we viewed the picture. Andria sure has a strong affinity for that hat of hers!


Another view of those gorgeous Hydrangea's from the previous post. Gorgeous old Hydrangae

I'm thinking I need to print one of the pictures to frame and hang in my bathroom.


Our local farmstand has plenty of pumpkins to go around! They made a wonderful display incorporating oodles of corn stalks that begged to have somone photograph the moment.

Pumpkin Stacks


More pumpkins at the ready in case you can't find the perfect one ; )

Pumpkin Bins



Waiting for the Great Pumpkin to appear!
A plethera of Pumpkins!


I thought this scene was so pretty. It's the end of the road, literally.

Fall Foliage


One more beautiful Hydrangea, only this one is a tree. Wish it were mine!

I'd say this house if fairly old as are most houses on this street, but what I really love about it is the flowers growing on the fence. Perfectly New England.

Beautiful garden

I had hoped you could click on the pictures to enlarge them since I uploaded them from Flickr, but unfortunately it's not working. Trying to have larger pictures just isn't working out for me. GRrrrrr ....

So yea, I guess I feel like one of those cat tails right about now! lol!

Loved this post. Your girls are so sweet together. Are they really close in age?

I didn't even know that cail tails did that!

Alyson, the girls are just under 3 years apart. 12 and 15. A perfect span ; )

I remember being a kid and ripping the cattails apart thinking it was so neat! Just like we did with Milkweed.

You've captured charming New England. Where are you in New England? I'm in New Hampshire.

I followed you here from Miss Vanessa's amazing Halloween bash.

Be sure to swing by my place for I have some brain tonic and three witches brew for you! Vincent Price is waiting patiently for you to arrive to begin his story. I do hope to see you soon!

Happy early Halloween.

Hi Kristen and Kathryn! Thank you for stoping by my blog!

Kathryn, I'm in the Exeter area. You and I sure aren't far apart! It's been fun to meet up with other bloggers in New England : )

Rae said...

Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers! The hydrangea trees are just amazing. I too wish I had one. Your pictures are fabulous! I'm partial to the old cape cod style house. I love their simplistic look.

These are great New England shots. The houses, the pumkins, the leaves...no where but here!

Thank you Rae and Steve. As you said Steve, no where but here.
However, I could take a Palm tree every now and then ; )

I love the picture of the trees at the end of the road! I wish we had Fall here. I think we are going to skip it and go directly to a mild winter. You make me miss the East Coast!

That is so funny how both girls had their hands the same way. True Sisters!
