Morning Glory

All of these photos were taken in New Castle, NH around 7:30 am, hence the long shadows


You might be wondering why the red post is there next to the fire hydrant, not to mention that they are so close to the stone wall. It's because the road is about a foot away and it's a very sharp curve. In fact I had to stand in the road, watching my back the whole time, just to take this photo. I risk life and limb for you people. LOL!

So many old homes in New Castle and Portsmouth were built with the road going right by the front door. This family is lucky enough to have a little bit of a yard as a buffer.

And on the side of the house . . .



I can't help it, I'm just a sucker for flowers and white picket fences. Someday I WILL have one of my own.







Just a dab of morning dew still remains





I hope you had a wonderful morning!

Your shots are amazing. No place has rugosas like New England. Hydrangea closeups remind me of frosting flowers on a cake! It's a treat to visit your site. Thanks!

I love your blog! Blogs like yours are why I started blogging! I love to escape to your part of the country! Those flowers are breathtaking! They look like someone made them up! They are just too perfect!

Laura said...

My neighbor brought me some of her white hydrangeas last night! The pink and purple are spectacular. Pick out any of those houses for me, Sharon. Did you say you were picking up the tab? The "cheap" one doesn't include a house - wow!

The Retired One said...

GORGEOUS flowers and pictures!

Rita said...

Your photos are always so amazing.

Jayne said...

The hydrangeas are just beautiful Sharon! Love the contrast with all the white fences you see. Oh, and we'll take two of those "cottages." Tee hee hee!

Carolynn said...

So beautiful! I think the first photo is my favourite. Thanks for stepping into traffic to get it! The combination of white & pink flowers together with the fence & the roofline. Really lovely, magazine cover material. What IS it about white picket fences that are so attractive anyway...

Riet said...

Again beautiful photo's. THose hydrangeas are gorgeous.

Cindy said...

Hi Sharon. These photos are gorgeous. I love picket fences too so I wouldn't mind having one myself. I really love the last photo in the post.

Thanks for the help on the butterfly. I think it's called a Fiery Skipper.

The CT Traveler said...

Those photos are amazing. I'm with you...I want a white picket fence of my own one day!! The hydrangeas are just beautiful.

Becky said...

They are beautiful but the 1st is my favorite. Those prices are crazy!

Cindy said...

Sharon, I love your white pickets and flower shots!

Eve said...

So beautiful Sharon and I'm so glad you didn't get run over!

Donna said...

Oh, Sharon, those hydrangeas on that white picket fence.. I am drooling as I type. My dream, too! As always, your photos are stunning. I don't always have time to leave a comment but I try to visit often - I couldn't get over your photos of the banded hawk on top of the car dining on (ahem) a poor Sammy! I'm always in awe of the birds, flowers, creatures, and nature that you capture - keem them coming!!... Donna

Mary said...

Oh, be still my heart!!! ;)

Barbara said...

What a beautiful series of captures. Love them. Barbara

Colleen said...

thanks for risking your life for these photos, they were worth it. I too am a sucker for a white picket fence with beautiful flowers tumbling over. We just returned from Cape Cod and I got my fill of fences and flowers in Chatham. :)

Judy said...

Now maybe it is just me, but after hearing you wish for a white picket fence with flowers hanging over it, I would have to find a small one that would fit into a planter for you. Like the friend who wished for a gold caddy, and then I found one for her - from Matchbox!
Maybe you should be more specific!

These photos are just breathtaking. I feel the same way about flowers and white picket fences. These flowers are so beautiful. Can't get enough. Thanks for sharing.
