New Year’s Resolutions?

New Year’s Resolutions?

Although it’s a common practice, I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. I never have. If inspired to go on a diet or revise an exercise routine, I don’t want to wait until January 1st to start. If I’m thinking about changing or starting something new; when it’s time, it’s time. Yet, in so many situations, […]

Garden of Lights

Over the years, I have driven by this exorbitantly decorated property, thinking that it was a bit over the top.  Actually, I thought it was pretty tacky.  But this year, I looked at it with fresh eyes and a different perspective.  Perhaps, after all, this elaborate holiday display could be looked at in another way; as something […]

Harkness Memorial State Park

In celebration of our anniversary, my husband, Ged, and I visited a gorgeous park overlooking the ocean in Waterford, Connecticut. Well worth the visit, my post will hardly be able to cover all the wonderful aspects worthy of mention on this beautiful estate. Between the stands of ancient beeches, maples and chestnuts, the expansive and […]

Innisfree

Imagine a garden designed to delight us visually and sensually, as well as addressing the often neglected sense of sound.  Using a story high fountain, rambling brooks tumbling over carefully placed stones and a gorgeous forty acre lake; the sound of water soothes visitors, while the reflective surfaces incorporate the sky and surrounding hillside into this breathtaking atmosphere.
