We’ve been in Maryland of late. Roger has business and I got to come along for the ride. It’s been great fun catching up with friends we got to know when we lived here. Yesterday I spent the day with our good friend Julia Landrum, catching up while watching birds at her window feeder. There were so many different species feeding, a far cry from the few I get in Vermont. We saw mourning doves, red-winged blackbirds, starlings, cardinals, chickadees, juncos, house finches, a nuthatch, a red-bellied woodpecker, a mocking bird and a carolina wren. The wren was a real treat, especially to see it up close and personal like that.

Today we had a visit from Cindy Turner. She came to our hotel where we caught up over coffee and lunch. She had some fabric shopping to do so Roger decided to sit that out and she and I went to G Street Fabrics and JoAnn’s. Yep, I spent money but it was all 25% off. What a deal.

While driving around, it is hard to recognize much. There has been so much development since we left 14 years ago. Some of the street names sound familiar, though I can’t really remember how they connect without looking at the map. Our old stomping ground of Damascus still looks the same though there are new shopping centers that have popped up where fields used to be. On my way out yesterday I took a photo of the Maryland farmscape that I loved so much when we were here. I love the rolling hills and farm fields, the barns and livestock with the mountains in the distance.
