color, glorious color

Some of you know that I just returned from a trip to Guatemala where I was cooking at a writer's workshop on beautiful lake Atitlan.  I arrived back in New Hampshire early Monday morning.  The day was gray and I was struck by the absence of all of the color that had surrounded me for the past couple of weeks.  This post will be mostly photos-- a feast of color for all of us that are slogging through the drab days of late winter.

housekeeping day--I was so touched that the housekeeper had placed my glasses carefully beneath my books--pretty sweet

It is nice to be home, but I have to say that spring can not come quickly enough!

Absolutely fabulous, Lisa, and the view from your room is superb. What an antidote to a dreary, rainy day in New England. John

Well that was a real change of pace/space from NH. Hope you were able to come home recharged. Hugs, Cyndie
