The Festival of Trees is an annual exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum. I wasn't in town this year, but my fellow Connecticut blogger Sue took some photos and offered this image to share with the viewers of this blog. There will be more on Sue's gardening blog, Idyll Haven. Thanks, Sue.
It is confession time. Since I retired in 2010, I have been spending half the year in Florida, mainly in the winter. I have kept this blog filled with photos from Hartford because I take and store away plenty of indoors shots and non-seasonal outdoors shots in the months when I am back in Hartford.
But, there are some some winter events in Connecticut that I just can't cover without being there. I have thought about having a summer blog for Hartford and a different winter blog for Florida, but that is just too much work and would probably be confusing to viewers. So, this winter I will showcase occasional guest photographs from Connecticut and my own and guest photographs from places other than Connecticut -- like Florida for me and South Africa for my daughter Susie.
But, the anchor of this blog is greater Hartford, and the vast majority [90 percent?] of the photos you will see this winter will be my photographs of Connecticut, either taken on occasional returns to Hartford or taken back when the weather was a little kinder. OK?
