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.
I actually had been creeping up to get a picture while it was sitting still – lol!
Wow, these are great! Love the first shot’s background vista. So scenic!
It is so pretty there!
Love the metal dress! I may have to put Fruitlands on my Weekend Getaway list.

It looks so lush and serene. I would love to visit there!
What a beautiful and unique place that is! These are lovely photos… nice shot of the Robin! 😉
I must add this site to my Pinterest board for Lit Destinations! Thanks.
Here’s my Saturday Snapshot.
Make sure you have Orchard House on your Pin Board! In Concord. the Alcotts lived there for twenty years and Louisa wrote Little Women there. 🙂
I bet a metal dress would be very uncomfortable! My snapshot is at http://goo.gl/LUiDP
I think Lady Gaga needs a metal dress. Nice shot of the bird in flight. Here’s Mine
