On the road to Rozzi Farmers Market, Boston

On a recent Saturday my friend and I went on a photo shoot around our Boston neighborhood. We passed many lovely gardens and interesting buildings.

The Farm:  Photos from My Recent Visit

The farm where my mother was born and raised no longer exists. The farm house is still there, inhabited by my uncle and my cousin and her family. My uncle slowly sold off his fields over the years. The photos below are all views from the farm house yard showing land that was once my uncle’s farmland. This is where I spent the happiest days of my childhood.

Charlottetown, PEI

I have so many photos from my trip to PEI, Canada this September, that I will be posting them in increments by site. The first site is Charlottetown, the capital of the Province. PEI is the birthplace of my mother. She was the only member of her family to immigrate to the US. I have been visiting PEI since I was six  weeks old. I love it there.
