Before The Storm

I was at Compo this afternoon waiting to shoot the impending storm 
when I got a call from my daughter that I had to pick her up right away. 
(Of course when I arrived, there was absolutely no sense of urgency!)
So no storm shots today but I did get one cool image of the clouds closing in.

Turkey Hill Road South

Every now and then when I mention I live in Westport, CT, I'm asked if I live near Martha Stewart. Well Martha Stewart doesn't live here anymore but I do drive down her old block, Turkey Hill Road South quite often. I have no idea which home was hers, but the street is so pretty.
  Here are a few pics of Martha's old hood.

A Pretty Westport Day

How beautiful does Compo look today? Drive by and check it out. It's too nice a day not too. 

I drove over this morning to enjoy the weather and the view before picking up some book donations for my friends Sherry and Adelaide.

It got me thinking how pretty everything is in Westpoort in the springtime until I saw this in the road!

Luckily I saw this soon after to get that prehistoric reptile off my mind.

Unfortunately on the way home I noticed that old snapping turtle hadn't gotten very far!

40,000 Daffodils

I read an article online the other day about a 96 year old man in Redding, CT who over the years has planted 40,000  daffodils in his back yard. Last year he planted 1447 until he got rained out.  I had to meet this guy! I drove out there around lunch time last saturday and when I pulled up I noticed a small sign on the property that said "Welcome Drive In", so I did. Unfortunately the flower man was not around, but his beautiful work was everywhere!
