Located near Rye Harbor is this adorable little pocket garden. I photographed it once before but how could I resist giving it a second chance!
Ever since my husband bought me a Nikon D5100 for my birthday this past month I've been revisiting some of my favorite old haunts. Funny but when I bought the Fuji s100 fs a few years ago I did the same thing ... reshooting many seasonal shots I'd taken with my smaller camera. I don't know about other people but there are some places I am drawn to for photography over and over again.
Isn't that garden gate the sweetest thing?
And who can resist a white picket fence? New England and white picket fences go hand in hand. Throw in an ocean view and you've got a recipe for summer perfection!
Every year I pine for a white picket fence of my own. Where it would go, who knows. Surely there has to be a place in my garden ... somewhere! I'll find a spot!
The greatest gift of the garden
is the restoration of the five senses
One of my goals this summer has been to drive down to Rockport, Ma. and shoot the gorgeous gardens in town, especially the hydrangeas. It hasn't happened yet. This Thursday may be my last chance before the flowers take a turn for the worse. It's a little heart breaking to see but some of the trees in the marshes are already turning red. Not to mention the school busses will be running next week.
To every season turn, turn, turn ... but does it have to turn so soon?
Like the gulls, all we can do is enjoy every last moment of beauty August has to offer!
