I am back in Connecticut until the 30th. Even without snow, and even when houses aren't decorated,
it feels a lot more Christmas-y up here. And, more colorful. The top house,
in the West End of Hartford, has a "little free library" in front.
This house is on Prospect Avenue, on the West Hartford side of the Hartford-West Hartford line.
I tried to photograph it all summer long. It is so much easier in the winter, without the leaves.
Notice the green grass in December? Forecasters say it will be 70 degrees
(21 degrees Celsius) on Christmas day.
