Hello rainy world! After a string of clear sun shiny days, the sky has opened up and we are getting some serious moisture here in Windsor. Hopefully it doesn't take down all the leaves but we have had a gorgeous autumn thus far. Today is the perfect moody day to stay in with a cup of fresh warm apple cider.
This video is quite fun via CBS news up at Shelburne Farms-- definitely worth a day trip! A 1,400 acre working farm and National Historic Landmark that practices rural land uses that are environmentally, economically and culturally sustainable. Cheesemaking, walking trails, demonstrations, and a farmyard are among some of what is available to see at this working Vermont farm.
Enjoy these beautiful shots of a Lake Runnemede sunset (just behind the Inn) and have a wonderful weekend! Thanks to all who visited us from Design Mom's wonderful write up - and please do come again. We have been thrilled so many new visitors have stopped by.
Check out Kristie's blogs here and here for her personal perspective and pictures of the weekend. See you next September!
What do ya say ?
Aren't old pictures cool?
There are pictures of Paradise Park and Lake Runnemede today and it is so interesting to see how things change.
I was reminded of one thing as I looked out my bedroom window--
the way the skeletal branches are silhouetted against the wintery pink sunset over Lake Runnemede (right near the Inn). Windsor is beautiful ALL year round, even November.
What is something beautiful, comforting, unique or redeeming about November where you are?
Two weeks ago, Leilani, our official Snapdragon Photographer, came up from Boston for a visit and we chatted about the wall art for the Inn. We love her work and it will be featured in many of the rooms and common spaces.
She will be coming up again to take some more shots of Windsor for the series, "Black and White Windsors" which will hang in the 2nd and 3rd floor Hallways. These are a few from the series that she took back in December around Lake Runnemede (just behind the Inn).
That time has come when the snow all melts and leaves the mushy aftermath of 5 months of cold and a ground that has been insulated from the world under feet of ice. Lake Runnemede is completely thawed and reflects Mt. Ascutney once again. I look forward to getting out more with my camera now that I don't have to worry about my fingers freezing. Before we know it, the leaves will be back. Hoorah.
Now I am off to paint the 3rd floor Hallway!
