Autumn is waning. Soon all the trees will be naked and winter's stark beauty will change the landscape.
Yesterday we were on the road over to Rhode Island and returned by the CT shore where there is still some color. It was warm and drizzly day (almost 60F!).
We always take the road less traveled and this dirt road is one we love in every season.
It passes by a much photographed swamp that was one of my husband's childhood haunts.
When you leave the dirt road, this amazing barn comes into view.
Years ago, I sketched it in the winter.
We were wishing we had time to wander through the opening of this wall nearby.
The stone walls of New England always amaze me. They are everywhere. We have an expression that rocks grow in New England. Anybody who gardens in New England can expect a new crop every spring! After the spring thaw, you see they have emerged to the surface. One can only imagine how difficult it was to clear the woods and make fields...and walls.
Hope you enjoyed this little travelogue. Just a wonderful ride on a pretty fall day.
Enjoy the day!
