We head to Hawthorne on Sunday for a stay that has become our annual October trip to see the Fall colors. Caretaker Bill has been busy finishing up a bunch of tasks before we arrive. You might have noticed from prior post, that Bill is a gem. He takes care of our home as if it is his, and watches after it while we are away so expertly, for which we are forever grateful. On our wish list has always been a green front door to tie in all the other green we used throughout the house. Yesterday was the day it was painted. Oh my word, so happy with the result I could squeal. OK, maybe I actually did. I think we both did. Thought you would all enjoy. Lots of fun Hudson Valley posts in the coming weeks.
