First Parmelee Farm Farmer's Market 2015


 The first Parmelee Farm farmer's market was held on Saturday June 13th, 2015.... and it was a big success. There were many interesting vendors and the parking lot was full! The newly renovated pavilion provided the perfect shelter for many of the vendors while the overflow with tents set up outside of the pavilion.

The Insects of Killingworth and Haddam

This is a collection of photos I took over the years which show some of the insects of New England....specifically Killingworth and Haddam Connecticut. I'm sorry I didn't research and identify the names of all the insects but this post is just for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of nature. This is the time of year (January) where I have wistful thoughts of summer and like to revisit memories from that time of year.

Killingworth Millennium Christmas Tree

I thought it would be fun to look back at the year 2000 when the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was cut down and brought from Killingworth, Connecticut. Quite a few townspeople showed up to watch the tree be cut down and loaded on the truck to take to New York City. I gathered a few pine cones that had fallen and used them for decorations on our tree.
