Ancient relics

Ancient is all relative, of course. Sharon was founded in 1740, and some of these gravestones date to the late 1700's. I pass by the cemetary every day as it's on my way to work, and on the path of my morning walk. In the early morning, in early Spring, it's eerily beautiful. When I took this picture, the air was filled with the sounds of birds - chickadees, titmice, crows - it was quite a racket. Posted by Picasa

Welcome to Sharon, CT, Daily Photo!

Inspired by ParisDailyPhoto.com, and the many other hometown blogs that have sprung up, I thought I'd share photos of my hometown, Sharon, CT. It's in the far northwest corner of the state, and has a population of about 2,000. I will probably include photos of other towns in our little area, including Lakeville, Salisbury and Millerton, NY. It's hard to pick the very first picture, but I chose this one because it gives the feeling of a small New England town, where details count and people take so much care over the little things. Spring is here, and on the town green, where this photo of delicate violas adorning a mailbox, was taken, the daffodils are coming up and the trees are starting to get a slight blush to them, though they won't leaf out for another six weeks.
