SEEN IN NEW HOPE

the beautiful Delaware River
 
The fall season, especially Halloween, the fair hamlet of New Hope comes to life! I swear, this is the most prefect town for Halloween, with it's rich history, and numerous ghost tours. Some interesting sights this week as the holiday approaches..........
 
There is always some oddities to be seen at the Creeper Gallery.....
 
 
And at most establishments around town, it's not unusual to see these...
 
The leaves are slowly turning along the street.....
 
Saturday over at the farmers market, one of the vendor's dog was resting outside, soaking up the nice weather. He has the right idea.....
 
How many can I send you???
 
Up the road from the Casa du Borghese is Buttercroft Farm, that I pass everyday going to work. I sometimes see these beautiful horses. If there close enough to the fence, I sometimes sneak them some apple slices. I'm sneaky like that.
I would be very hard pressed if I ever had to move from this swell little charming spigot of a town!

  2. Seeing horses on the way to work is the one thing I miss about going to the office. :-)

    1. Who you telling. I've. Been told if I was a cat, I'd push all my young off the porch!!!! I'd be a rotten mother.

    2. I wasn't born with a "mothering" gene; I have always disliked kids, so I chose not to have any. raising bratleys ain't for everybody!

      but stoopid people breed (re: duggars)...

  6. Nice pictures, Maddie, especially the dog protecting the pumpkins and the bucolic Delaware River. Is the Bucks County Playhouse on the right a theatre, or another place for your ribald adventures?

    1. Tomass, my friend, you have a eagle eye! It is indeed a playhouse with usual top notch entertainment! My antics aren't open to most public consumption.

    1. The gallery owner specializes in oddity artifacts and taxidermy posed into odd poses and in outfits. The animals were already dead and not harmed though. Or they were purchased at antiques markets. They also carry little novelty pieces.

  11. I still remember my trip east a couple years ago. The Fall is always most spectacular out east. The farm with the horses looks more like an Estate!!!!

  12. William and I love New Hope and Bucks Country in the autumn, when I feel is at its most spectacular time. The color, the crisp air, and the eerie feeling that always looms. Those horses are beautiful creatures.

  13. Beautiful. There was a horse named Checkers who people would always stop to talk to and give him apples, carrots, and such. He became quite the celebrity... When he passed away a couple years ago (at age 29, I think) the flowers and wreaths and signs filled the fencing. It was so sweetly sad... Sometimes it's the simple giving of oneself - like a stolen moment to hand a treat to a horse - that can bring out the best in us. Happy Monday!

  14. These post are helping me embrace the lovely fall season. Could that dog look more content?

  15. After seeing those horses, it makes me wonder if you ride astride or side saddle?

  16. I can definitely see we need to road trip to the southeast one day. We have heard of the beautiful town all the way hear. Looks so quaint and charming.
