Good Stuff

Marbling

On a recent trip up Dorset, Vermont, Kaki noticed that the sidewalks are paved with Vermont white marble.

Old Man Winter

Mark visited the polder landscape of northwest Germany (Friesland) near the North Sea, which is very similar to the Dutch landscape of farm fields and windmills, all below sea level. On Easter-eve he joined family friends for their annual bonfire that burns away the winter cold and brush cleared from the fields, to usher in spring. This amazing German tradition is widely celebrated, and fires were visible in every direction from our spot on the Pfahldeich (pile-dike, built in the 1600s).

Spring Chickens

It’s spring and Mary’s chickens are in heavy production! Today was the first distribution day at KMDG.

Zeacliff Summit

Panorama of the White Mountains from Zeacliff summit.  The windchill was -75 on Mt. Washington (on the left of the photo).  This was taken by Michael on his recent winter excursion.

Pedestrian Patterning

Mosaic paving is used in towns across the Azores on sidewalks and plazas.  The black stones are native to the islands, and islanders exchanged them for the white stones from mainland Portugal.

Haystack Craft

Ruppert Nurseries

Sharon spent a beautiful morning tagging trees at Ruppert Nurseries in Laytonsville, MD.

En Route

Cows in a green pond. 

On the way to Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary in Boylston, MA, Kaki couldn't pass by this scene without taking a picture. 

Morocco

Keller Fountain Park

Halprin's Fountain 44 years later.  The contrast between the water stained and the weathered concrete was quite striking. It's too bad the water wasn't on.

That View

Can’t complain about this view!
