merry hallow's eve

shadowless like Silence,

To Silence."

a Merry All Hallow's Eve to you,too,Heather~

Thank you for your note and yes, aren't these wonderful images of a Vermont cemetery? I loved walking through it and reading the stones from the late 1600's til now.

We are all doing great, the last mint root was just this morning planted and now all the fields are resting and quiet until spring.

Our new little grandson, Matthew, is 3 months old and such a sweet little boy. We're enjoying them all so much~

The dollies all say hello and send their best to you & your family~

Love walking thru cemeteries, especially with my granddaughters. We love reading the old fashion names and dates. Went on a great candle light one just before Halloween. I have missed you. Sethy sends her love to you and Sukey!

Hello Barbara,

It's so nice to hear from you!
All the little Deerfield ladyes send their love to you and Sethe! Especially Sukey~

That's so nice that your grand daughters enjoy doing these kinds of things with you. Isn't it wonderful?!

My daughter & I love walking through old cemeteries,too.We have gone on many a lantern lit tour and love them especially~and scaring ourselves silly!

We have a little snow falling today and I'm baking~ a perfectly snug day for candle light and sewing by the fire.

It's so nice to hear from you today, Sending love,C.
