Reap What You Sow
On my recent travels, I was reminded of a favorite character from Barbara Cooney's book, Miss Rumphius, in which the grandfather tells his grandaughter (Miss Rumphius) that she needs to do something to make the world more beautiful. She planted lupine seeds along the highways and byways of Maine!
I didn't come across any lupines along the byways, but I did spot this 5-pointed beauty in the garden at the Adams National Historic site when I got home to Quincy.
What would you do, if you were given that directive?
Porch Fest 2018: "Revival" started things off on this Marion Street veranda. A few rain drops did not dampen spirits of this ...
A late winter snowstorm named "Stella" is due to bear down on the Northeast Tuesday!
After today's snowfall, the sky took on a watercolor glow of pink, purple and blue. It was a winter wonderland once again.
From atop Penn's Hill, Abigail Adams and her young son John, could have heard the women chanting in Boston today.
