Who says you can’t go back?


This morning, Audrey, her mom Connie & I had headed back to Middleboro,MA where I shot the inside of a home early in the spring. This time it was to get some outside shots now that things have filled in a bit. If you missed the sneak peeks of that shoot, you can click ~HERE~!
It was wonderful to visit again with the homeowner Donna and see her yard all decked out for spring. We had a chance to sit and visit on their gorgeous patio and she treated us to some delicious goodies...

…but that is all I can show you because the rest of my pics are for a future issue!! Sorry to tease you like that!!
Okay, I am not really sorry… but it will be worth the wait  ~ ~ ~  I promise!

Then we headed down the road a bit to the  gardens and home of my friend Donna Glidden – does that name sound familiar? That’s because her gorgeous gardens, yard and porch are featured in the summer issue that is out now. I was there in August last year and was so excited to head back today. And even though it is still very early in the garden season here in New England, her yard and quintessential New England cape style home looked wonderful! Sometimes pictures need no explanation…

In addition to the garden tour, Donna gave Audrey and her mom a tour inside and I quickly snapped a few photos inside as well …168

While it is not always possible to go back to homes we have previously visited, this just worked out wonderfully! !
Thanks Donna and Donna!! It was a delightful way to spend a late spring day in New England
Thanks so much for stopping by and making APP blog part of your reading.
