  1. I have a huge folder of pretty New England homes (ideas for my next life) and I definitely added some of these to it. Thank you!

  2. I have often noticed in your photos of the old New England buildings that they don't usually show foundation planting. I wonder if that's why so many are still standing.

    1. What I wonder is why none of them have mold on the weatherboards. Practically all the houses in this neighborhood do.

  6. Lovely homes, interesting buildings, striking scenes that bring questions...how big is that tree, how old is that tree...just an enjoyable series of pictures. I must admit that my favorite is the trailer with the load of bales of hay. I live in a small town with farms near by so we see a lot of hay but it's in round bales(?). Not being a farmer, I prefer the old style bales which bring back memories of time spent on farms. I'm sure round is the most economical way to go but.... As always, thanks.
