My World Tuesday: Bethlehem, Connecticut

Bethlehem

Bethlehem
Once a part of Woodbury, Bethlehem, Connecticut is its own little rural world wherein lies a beautiful, unpretentious, bountiful apple orchard that also happens to sell the most superb corn on the cob. It's best to eat the produce outside because it's so juicy it splashes. That's March Farms. The stream in the last shot was part of a land trust tract that we stumbled upon after the trip to the orchard.

(P.S. The "red one" is an apple! A lovely and wonderful Macintosh.)

    Hugs and blessings,

  4. What a lovely place. The water in the bottom photo is my favourite I think.

    You brought me a smile today with this, remembering friends of my mother's who would drive all their Christmas cards 100 miles each year to Bethlehem PA just for the postmark. We always got a kick out of seeing it.

    (oh dear I nearly signed off with Merry Christmas Sandy LOL)
