September- Person, Place & Thing

farmersmarketportrait01detail-optPerson-  I met this farmer at our town’s local farmer’s market. He had the best tomatoes.

oursouthernfarmhouse-optPlace- We downsized to a small farmhouse built c. 1865-1870. The first owners were the Caldwell family who emigrated from Ireland in 1766. After a long and interesting history (which I’ll share later) it’s now our turn to be caretakers.

tentcaterpillarnest04-optThing- I’ve become fascinated with nests created by tent caterpillars. The structure is so tightly woven a bird can’t penetrate it.
