It is just beautiful. What are the three trees? Elms, maples, osks....

Gorgeous view!

Nice little place. Rather small, though. I suppose one could always find a place to sleep in the solarium at the rear. And I'd really like a larger yard - you know, for the dog to run.

But, other than that, it looks fine.

P.S. Enjoy your Sunday! Crumbs in the cash drawer. Sheesh! You're so funny!

Looking at your photos, I am always entranced by the space and greenery you have there. I am envious because those are such luxuries here in Manila. You live in such a beautiful place and your photos show that so wonderfully!

Majestic house, majestic site. Air looks briskly autumn-y. Black Mountain, mm? Sounds eerie.

I remember I used to do the same thing on a river near by my home, when it was still clean enough to do it. Now you would probably get a disease, if you tried.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Brattcat! for the dedicated post! Ye ole colonial looks as if it could be Greensboro.

Actually, I'm out of town taking care of sick relatives and had to sneak off to McDonalds with my laptop to get internet access! Seeing this post made my day. That view hasn't changed.

The ivy covered fence in its autumnal dress makes a fitting border for the house. This is the sort of house that I envisage Emily Dickinson lived in as she scribbled her quixotically punctuated poetry on scraps of paper.

Lovely ...

such beautiful images of rolling green hills and autumn tees and history also!

Thank you for sharing your blue skies with us. I feel brighter already.
I've loved your series on Butternut Hill. One can see exactly why they sited the house where they did. Loved all those shots, especially of the proprietress and her tree.

Beautiful looking house.

Thank you all for your kind comments.
Arija, the trees are maples.
Julie, Emily Dickinson's house is far more modest. I've just spent the last hour scanning my files, trying to find a photo of the house where the poet of Amherst spooled out her life but I must not have been pleased with anything I took during my two visits there.

Couldn't you just idle away a lifetime in that solarium? What a breath taking spot.

Thx for bringing us along. A place worth seeing.

I like the angle you have chosen to show the house behind the tress.
