landgrove, vermont

While driving through Landgrove, Vermont,
I spied this beautiful horse standing in a snowy field
- the white horse in the white field had such a dream-like quality

Me: Wow - white on white - that sure was pretty! - I wonder how it would look in a photo
Greg: Too bad you don't have your camera
Me: Ummm, I do - but what are the chances she'll still be in the same spot?

The chances? Yeah, pretty much zero...
But I did manage to catch this shy beauty's last glance before she hid behind the trees.
Note to self - always have camera ready when driving through Landgrove...

More snow this morning - but then, this is Vermont...
I'm pretty sure mud season is on its way - then maybe Spring flowers

I'm joining Eileen for Saturday's Critters
Have a wonderful weekend!

hello, again!!

it's been a long and snowy winter, here in Boston
and like a bear - I've been hibernating
okay - not really - wishful thinking...
but enough of my laziness
Spring is on the horizon - I hope...

and while I do love winter
- not to mention the snowy Vermont countryside -
the commuting scene in Boston was getting u-g-l-y
 So, it turns out that poorly maintained trains don't like snow - 
and cold, weary commuters like trains that show up -
Not a winning combination...
On the upside, though,
there was lots of bonding and commiseration happening at the water coolers

we've had some new visitors at Away
- the perfect motivation to dust off my horribly neglected camera -
and get back on the horse - so to speak

I'd like to give a giant thank you to all who emailed and messaged me during my absence
Thank you for your kind thoughts and patience!
All is well - I've missed you!!

I'm joining Theresa at The Run*A*Round Ranch Report
for Good Fences
- because you know how I love a good barnyard fence :-)
