I love petting the farm animals, too!
I enjoyed the shots of the gourds & pumpkins, and the pumpkin
postcard (I think that was in the RI group?) Can't wait to see the
spectacular foliage you anticipate; I think maybe it is too early
for the peak yet.
The funny thing is, I didn't know how to find your Rhode Island
gallery, so I put "rhode island" into the search box. Imagine my
surprise when, among your photos, up popped a photo of my husband
and me! Pranlobha took it (I don't remember even ever seeing it
before) and posted it. It was taken about two years ago. We were
standing on the steps of the old church on the green in North
Scituate, Rhode Island, where we were married in 1983.
It was also fun to see the RI World Harmony Run shots and some of
your pretty photos (butterfly on flower, for instance.)
Thank you Sharani, for the many many ways you bring inspiration to
