Autumn in New England

by Caroline Brown

I know I’m supposed to do a post on cranberry farming next…it’s coming. I’ve been traveling for the last week and am catching up with work in addition to writing the cranberry post. In the meantime, here are a few pics from some of my local travels.

  1. Breathtaking C! Thanks for sharing. New screensaver for me, thanks. 🙂

    Looking forward to the next cranberry installment.

  2. Thank you Caroline for the incredible pictures. My favorite is the tree in #3. Wow. On my list of to-do’s is to visit New England in the Fall. Breathtaking!


  3. Thanks for posting the incredible image, the water just looks so smooth like a perfect mirror.

  4. What a pleasant surprise, while looking at your blog I came across this old post with a couple of pictures of Woonasquatucket River.

    I grew up in Johnston, RI. and remember fishing this river as a kid. My friends and I had made a Tom Sawyer type raft out of 55gal drums and plywood and using a pole pushed our way up the river until we came to the small waterfall.

    Looking back, I think what a sight her were 3 kids on this thing with a couple of lawn chairs and fishing poles.

  5. If you love these serene landscapes, you might want to check out an awesome landscaping conference in MA next week. You may have heard about Peter Forbes – he’s the guy from Mad River, Vermont who’s done really fantastic work on protecting Walden Pond and the White Mountains in New Hampshire. He also launched a program to protect and revitalize urban gardens and farms across New England and he’s got a national reputation for being a champion of a new way of thinking – a lot like mine – where the health of the people and the health of the land are viewed as equal. I wanted to let you know that Peter’s providing the keynote presentation at ELA’s Conference and Eco-Marketplace, February 27, in Springfield, MA. He’s really worth listening to! Check out Peter’s schedule and the other speakers and demonstrations at: (
