A Month to Remember: November 2022

That’s not to say […]

A Foliage Guide From a New Englander…

In my last post, where I talked about snapping some foliage photos in Old Sturbridge Village– I had commented how we were presently in what I considered to be the peak and most beautiful Autumnal scenery here in New England- and how it can come and go in an instant. For example, just a couple […]
