Saturday Snapshot: FRUITLANDS!

on July 13, 2013

A couple of weeks ago my dear friend, Pat, and I went to Fruitlands, a museum in Harvard, MA (above). Fruitlands is one of the many places that the Alcotts lived (in 1842). It is so very beautiful there! We enjoyed the view, went through the Alcott farmhouse museum (red farmhouse down the hill) and the art museum, and ate lunch at their scrumptious cafe. They also have an emphasis and exhibits on Native Americans and on Shakers.

Here’s a robin, just taking off!

Here’s Pat posing by some art they had on display: metal dresses!

    It’s so hard to get a picture of birds sitting still! Especially robins, they’re to flighty. I love the interactive art! Very cool.

    Wow, these are great! Love the first shot’s background vista. So scenic!
