Autumn Day Trip

Autumn in New England never loses its appeal.  The natural wonder of leaves turning color is a spectacular event we are blessed to partake in annually. So much of my art is nature inspired, so we tramped off to Harvard MA, about 60 miles or so from home and spent much of the day at Fruitland, a historic piece of land that was once the hopeful beginning of the transcendentalist movement and the preserved communal home, initially established by Bronson Alcott and Charles Lane in 1843.  If ever you get to MA it’s a wonderful place to visit.

  3. This does look like a beautiful trip! Perhaps we will have time to visit Fruitland next fall. Too many trips to PA this year.
