Travel Photo of the Day (August 14)

During my walk today I noticed how brown things are starting to look in London. We haven’t had any rain recently and the grass, trees, and shrubs are starting to show it. Here’s a photo I took last year during my visit to Concord, Massachusetts. It was so green!

    I hope to make it there this fall! Will be in Boston in late October; it might not be so green for me. :-/

    Very idyllic. Nice shot.

    Don’t worry rain is heading up from here in the west!

      I’m excited. I love the changing of seasons. Growing up in California, where the seasons don’t really change, made me feel like I was missing out.

    It was so green and so inspirational too dear TBM, fascinated me. Thank you, love, nia

    Hope you get some rain soon. Nice photo! It would be cool to come across something like that nestled amongst the trees.

  11. That’s a lovely photo. If you were to come north of the border you’d find lushness everywhere, we’ve had a lot of rain in Scotland this summer and I must say it does make everything look fresh and burgeoning.

  12. That is so so beautiful. I imagine it would be a little eerie at night, but during the day it looks like a fairy house!

    Hard to find brown in the British nature, isn’t it?

    I love places like this, except for the bugs…

    Just like a haunted cottage in the forest. πŸ™‚
