LikeLike Reply I was transfixed, much to the bemusement of the man who lived there, getting into his car, fine white hair, lifting in the breeze, staring as he drove away. LikeLike Reply I can imagine it! LikeLike Reply I wanted to give him a photo. But I don’t know him. Ah, well, if I ever see him again, perhaps I will tell him about it.

I wish it was crisp and light like that picture here….endless rain in the UK. LikeLike Reply I’ve read about that. I hope your community is not flooded. The pictures are alarming. I remember being in Bath when the Severn had flooded, and all the pitches for miles around were underwater as well. Children must be going mad without safe places to run. LikeLike Reply I shared with and read this one to my son and he really got. very cool LikeLike Reply he really got what? I’m glad if he liked it! 🙂 LikeLike Reply It is nice to see some sun after many grey days. 🙂 *hugs back* The extent of my walking was to the back yard to try and move some of the willow limbs. Some ended up in the creek. And I think are going to need more than just me to drag them out. Maybe tomorrow. As hubby is due home in about an hour from being gone for a bit so no work! Just play! LikeLike Reply We had three enormous swamp willows in our backyard growing up. Every year we cleared out branches. LikeLike Reply I’ve read various accounts as to the life of willows. From ten to forty years. Mine is about 24 years old. LikeLike Reply Ours were not weeping willows, but they lasted into my 40’s and were probably my age. Then my parents moved, and I didn’t keep up with them. They were really wide, huge trees with garter snakes at their bases and squirrels in their branches. LikeLike Reply Ah, so that is why I have garden snakes. I have some of those snakes living under my wood pile. Squirrels are in all of the trees. 🙂 I don’t mind the snakes. If they just would keep some of the little rodents away. LikeLike Reply Garter snakes are harmless. They must have good root systems for snake nests. LikeLike That and the otters, muskrats and other critters that like to burrow into creek and river banks. 🙂 LikeLike A busy place where you live! LikeLike OH so breathtaking 😉 LikeLike Reply Thanks!

We have another storm due tomorrow. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I remembered later what area you are in, and I found it on your blog. We loved Maine and New Hampshire back in the 60’s when we lived in Maine. LikeLike Reply Yes, it’s all beautiful here. Summers are fabulous. Did you go to the Cape? My kids LOVE it! 🙂 LikeLike Reply We didn’t go to the Cape that you probably refer to. In 2006, we returned to Portsmouth, NH and revisited the place where we once lived in Kittery, Maine. On the way back home, we spent some time at Gloucester where our kids went on the boat to watch the whales. We loved New England.
