Snow.. in October…. before Haloweenie??  The joy of New England weather!

It’s way too early for this white stuff for me!

New England Harvest

I love the colors of Autumn.. crimson reds, sparkling golds, brilliant orange and rusts.  Jack Frost will be nipping at our toes before we know it–but until then, get out and enjoy the spectaculiar foliage, or head to your nearest farmers market and pick up a peck of apples, pumpkins, squash or native Maine cranberries.

This weekend Kennebunk will be celebrating the Applefest & Art Show.  Scrumptious samples, recipes, musicians and fabulous artwork. Hope to see you there!

Elegant Mama Dove



She took up nesting in our bittersweet vine a few weeks ago.  Odd in itself, as the nest typically houses the robin family.  She was so proud of her new family… almost elegant.

Only three of the five eggs hatched, but so sweet.  Papa brings the meals and Mama feeds her family. It didn’t seem to bother her that we were nearby each time we entered or left our house–nor the fact that Picollo and Spence lived here too.  Remarkable that she managed to fit them all in to this small nest–they were sizeable chicks as you can see.



Bittersweet babes– baby mourning doves

But then yesterday the north winds really were blowing hard here.  This morning I found that they had moved on–probably to warmer pastures if they were smart.  We’re going to miss you Ms Dovey and your family. Winter warm my friend.. til next Spring.
