Maine in autumn

Posted by Sharkey

Silly me!  I just found these photos taken in early October, during the last time we went to Maine with Martha and her guests.  I must have misplaced the memory card.  We Frenchies take so many photos for our blog and I guess, once in a while, things can slip through a crack.  ‘Tsk-tsk,’ as …

Sharkey and I were outside exploring the other day, when we found some strange things in one of the wooded areas of the garden. At first we thought we found some balls to play with but, as it turned out, that wasn’t the case.

All of a sudden the weather turned cold.  Sharkey and I put on our warm jackets and went outside to see what was new in the world.  We were so happy to find that many pumpkins and gourds had been arranged for decorations.  We love pumpkins and Martha grows many unusual varieties.  Come and take …
