esther listens
as the wind rolls up to her door and calls her out to witness
the revelation of leaves

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the h... whoops. Wrong holiday. I do like the house. Is that your house?

What a wonderful abode. Not much TV watching in that house.

Not my house, Abe. This one belongs to Butternut Esther, the beautiful elder I showed the other day. I hope you're enjoying your time off.

What a great view Esther has. Looking off towards NY? MA?

Love your poetic contributions! They are outstanding, as is this fine photo.

Who is Esther? Never mind, I just read your reply to Abe. And I remember Butternut Esther who's 180 years old and going strong!

Must be the weather in them thar parts.

Magnificent setting and the house looks so perfect. I can't imagine that the view could get any more beautiful. The first owners certainly knew what they were doing.

How old is the house?

Seeing your picture, I'm sighing.. So serene, so perfect, so beautyful..This house made certainly a lot of people happy, even us, who can do no more than falling in love with it...

Beautiful autumnal countryside, its almost like a dream for me see something like this, now surrounded by concrete and glass. Have a wonderful weekend and many thanks for your most kind visits.

I love the colors in your autumn photos, the contrast between the green and fall colors is scrumptious.

Esther is indeed in paradise. What a house, what a setting . . . I like the leaf bare birch tree in its colorful surround and the polished stump. Thanks for sharing another magnificent photo from Brattleboro.
