For a fun and relaxing experience in beautiful surroundings, while having your hair done, check out Jayne Power's organic hair salon on Main Street in Clinton, Connecticut. I met Jayne several years ago when looking for something a bit more natural. I discovered that not only are her hair products more natural but the whole environment inside her shop is very soothing..... filled with plants and angels! There's never a dull moment with Jayne. I find her very personable and love the way she styles my hair.

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.
