  2. Now that you've gone behind the waterfall (is it like going through the wardrobe to Narnia?), we'll expect photos from different times of the year.

    1. I can only do it in summer when there is less water coming down, and winter, when it freezes. It's very mossy and slippery back there. I keep trying to get good pictures of that rocky mossy little world but my baby camera can't handle it.

    1. Not sure about the wild dill. Did you see my May 28 post where I took pictures of 14 barns in one 8 mile stretch of road. Come to Delaware County NY of you like barns!

  4. Barns, barns, glorious barns! Even when rundown or abandoned. Your photos remind me of happy childhood summers spent Upstate and our driving expeditions from our Orange County base, near Washingtonville.
    Do they still have horse racing via "the trotters" near Goshen, do you know? And the wonderful Summer concert series, sprinkled all over Upstate! I do hope you-all attend some. Thanks for these terrific pics, Jennifer.

    1. Hi Diane,
      I don't know about the trotters. Upstate is pretty great (and big!). Glad you have good memories.

  5. The splendid greens and yellows should inspire another abstract with just a splash of red! The view from behind the waterfalls ...mystical. Loving the croc on the old red barn... Barn whimsy at its best! Books, flowers, and a surprise daylily...a wonderful visit to the country!

  7. The waterfall reminded me of church camp when we used to go to the Arbuckles in Oklahoma. There was a waterfall called Turner's Falls and behind the falls was Devil's Den, of course, and you could wade back behind it. It was such an adventure for us as kids.

  9. Hello Jen, I love the little touches (the rocket and the crocodile) that show that time has not entirely stood still in the traditional backroads of New England. It goes without saying how much I also like the nature photos.
