This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

what a day!

walk 6 skippy 2

These are some photos from Skippy's walk. The lighting was fantastic. The woods glow. Lots of yellow and orange leaves this year. Less bright reds.

Amazing how busy the chipmunks were. I suppose they're gathering and hiding food. They scurried across the paths and rustled in the fallen leaves.

Skippy had a nice swim in the water hole and then ran like a crazy dog. He likes the crisp air.

Great photo series Kathy. The last photo is my favorite, the exposure between the sky and trees is perfect.

I was out doing the same things this afternoon. We had nice 65ish weather but it was really grey. Looks like your had much sunnier sky's.

Most of these trails in the photos are actually in Waltham. They're on Met State land between Trapelo Rd (Waltham) and Concord Ave (Belmont). Only the lower photo is on the Belmont side of Beaver Brook. Its taken in Rock Meadow. These are nice walking areas. Use Google maps to find.

Thanks for those photos, Kathy. Looks like we missed some really fine days and beautiful trails while we were on vacation. We love hearing about your adventures with Skippy. It almost looks like he prefers running and swimming to his gardening!! Shame on him.
