Two things to note...
As you can see in the pictures, the Cormiers are "dog people". And it seems we are following suit. This summer, we are hoping to bring a new furry, four-legged member into our family. Because we need a little more noise and chaos in this house...
I have fallen in love with lupines, a beautiful flower native to northern New England. I learned that we can, indeed, grow them in northern Illinois, and purchased some seeds in Maine to grow in our back yard.
Coming soon: pictures from Rhode Island and Vermont...
