a farm stand and new friends








this weekend while trying to find a supermarket i ended up getting lost but what i ended up finding is the perfect farm stand. catherine the owner with her large smile explained that this was their first year. I listened and asked questions, took pictures and went home with all the ingredients for a ratatouille( thanks sheila) and ate a delicious apple on the way home. well yesterday needing to go get more veggies, i found myself driving there. the stand is in ct, and i must pass many farm stands before i get there but i knew it would be hard to find people as kind. i arrived and quickly gathered more veggies a couple of apples to try, they have many varieties. she handed me a big basket of peaches and a few other things on the house, how lucky was i! I grabbed a bottle of locally made ginger ale, when she said "how did your picture turn out?" i said "okay" and she said would you like to go to the orchard and take photographs? would i i was in heaven! The orchard is beautiful it has fifteen hundred apple trees of every kind and color not to mention peach trees and a pond. I was under the weather so i will return there to take more pictures. I can't help but think how quickly life has changed for k and i, their i am getting my produce in connecticut having four pets, listening to crickets under the biggest starlit sky..while eating peach crisp and ice cream!

You? stuck? This is so much change my head is spinning. I've just looked at your last few posts and can't believe the change you, k and the dogs are making. I wonder which area of Vermont you're in. maybe I should give you the address of our house. We have a renter there but the place is beyond gorgeous. I will miss pictures of Providence but can't wait to enter this new world with you. Hugs and kisses!
