On the street where I live…
Happy Easter Everyone! Pretty chilly here in New England where Mama Nature still hasn’t decided to let Spring out! I am going to take you out and about in the country as a change of pace from the Fifth Avenue Easter Parade.
Sunrise lights the mountains first before cascading over our fields.
At last there is no more ice in the stream. This is Schenob Brook and once was a famous trout stream. Now it is too warm for trout. Its’ spaghetti-like path forms our northern boundary.
A mile to the North is this hen house. This one is pretty quiet.
Next door live a herd of Highland Cattle. They are out all Winter. Mom and her baby watch me watching them.
They also escape. This was ten days ago.
At the other end of the road, Belted Galloway cattle graze. These cattle come from Western Scotland and are so striking with their distinctive white belted middles.
Livestock aside, there are lots of flower events still happening. While collecting flowers at the wholesaler for a workshop in Albany, I saw this lovely Easter basket with a towering orchid.
Perhaps a bit heavy with tropical flowers for Easter but very pretty nonetheless.
This is more like it!!
