We have moved from early spring to enjoying the May weather. I trust you have enjoyed this special time of year.
We have just returned from a trip to New England. We visited Boston, MA; Cape Cod, MA; went through Vermont, New Hampshire,
New Jersey, Rhode Island, New York and then on to Maine. We stayed in Bar Harbor and visited Acadia National Park. Sunrise
there was about an hour earlier than here. I was amazed how far behind the season is up there compared to here in Southeast
Virginia. The forsythia were blooming as well as daffodils, tulips, azaleas and other flowers. Also the leaves were just beginning
to come on the trees. And it was cold!! We wore winter coats, scarves and gloves while we were out and about. We really enjoyed
the scenery, especially the rocky coastline of Maine. Coming back through Vermont, there was snow on the hillsides and woods.
We were glad to get back home to the warmer temperatures. Now it is beginning to get really warm. We are having to adjust
from 40 degrees to 85 degrees in just a few days!!
I hope you get a chance to visit some other places in this great country of ours. Every place has its own beauty.
