Fall is in Full Bloom – A Casper Sighting & More
Even though we had a dry summer and have been in a severe drought, the trees have been quite lovely this year. You really cannot beat New Hampshire in the autumn! I would never live anywhere else. I love our 4 seasons! I don’t even mind the snow as long as my power stays on, and I don’t need to shovel my car out🙂 My snow tires have helped a great deal.
I have been seeing Casper the past few weeks – but I either am in a hurry and can’t stop or didn’t have my camera with me. Today – I had the Nikon and my new 18-300mm lens. It was drizzling and a bit dark; however, I did get a couple decent shots that I cropped.
Creepy story – in honor of Halloween: I was in a meeting last week, and we were talking about unusual graves in the area. Someone spoke of a grave in Concord where the person was afraid of being buried alive so had pipes for air and a door on the grave. Well, I went out in search of it and found it! Creepy – but back not too far in history – folks were afraid of being buried alive because mistakes were made. Medical science was not what it is today. The grave had 2 pipes in the back. There was a door – latched and locked and two handles. Creepy!!!
I have carved my first jack o’lantern of the season – the New Moon white pumpkin. It was getting too ripe.
Enjoy your week!
