Quite some time ago I spent four years in Massachusetts. As you can well imagine autumn is an incredible display of brightly colored trees and farm stands selling all sorts of apples, mums, pumpkins and gourds. I have fond memories of driving from my suburban neighborhood outside of Boston into the countryside armed with clippers so I could pull over and snip bittersweet (my fall favorite) growing on the side of the road.
I do miss the northeast at this time of year, December through March when the snow piles, up not so much.
These photos were taken by my great friend L. who keeps me in the loop with scenes from her area. A few years back she even sent me a huge box of bittersweet. Thanks L!
