Providence Water Fire

Leona and I finally got to one of Providence's premier summer events. Water Fire. Lots of music, people and fire on the water in large sconces.

Plenty of good food, including desserts, and street entertainers, as well. Way more action than one can see in one evening's viewing, so worth a return trip! There are also Venetian style oared gondola rides on the river as well as other touring boats. Lots of images to see at my gallery at SmugMug.

Magic Wings Conservatory & Gardens

A very fun place to visit with lots of Butterflies and moths and other exotic critters. It is in South Deerfield, MA with more info at Magic Wings. There is a restaurant and hours of watching the butterflies and kids watching them.

Don't miss the two old Blue cabooses in the farm stand lot across the street!

More at the gallery, as usual.

These are made from clear umbrellas and recycled jersey rags. The show opened August 5th and will run through October, 2010. More at the title link.

Fort Hill Farm

In Thompson, CT there is a lovely farm that raises Lavender in a Stonewall Old Barn cellar hole garden pictured at the left. THey also feature a large cornfield maze, their own ice creams including their special Lavender topping. There are dairy cows and a horse and Guinea Fowl and many other great sights. My gallery, linked at the title, above, includes a number of HDR images I took there recently.
