With an arterial bridge under construction, my normal route from "downtown," when I have occasion to be there, has changed.  I take an old, very familiar street — one with some history (LaPierre lived on that street) — one I like a lot.  DH and I almost bought a house there 20+ years ago — after we looked, the Realtor gave us info on a few similar properties and one of them was Our House (which I’d actually driven past a few months earlier but wrote off as surely being out of our price range) (obviously, I was wrong).

There’s a small Labyrinth Garden near a church on that street.  I pass it, notice it, make note of it every time I go by.  I’m usually in a hurry, so — every time — I think to myself that I need to stop there someday.  It was 6:00 and the light was fading fast when I drove by last night and I felt a little guilty stopping only to photograph the beautiful color and texture in the surrounding gardens — it kind of felt anti- what a labyrinth is all about — but whatever.  We’re having SUCH a beautiful autumn.  There were no labyrinth police there and, really, there’s no right and wrong.


Now that we’ve been introduced and I’m a bit more familiar, I will definitely stop again to walk.

And take pictures.

Happy Weekend!  My body will be up VERY early to go to Madison tomorrow.  It will be a blast — the cutest little kids in the whole wide world, wearing Halloween costumes, having a PARTY, going on PARADE!  Let’s not forget all the various TREATS!

Oh, my spirit will most definitely be in Rhinebeck cavorting with my friends.  Let me know if you feel it.

  1. Lovely colors, Vicki.
    It will be good to be very busy tomorrow. I have a sister visiting, which makes a very good tradeoff, but I’ll still be envious as all the Rhinebeck posts start to show up.

  2. I love labyrinths…there are no rules – you’re right. I told Carole that we’re going to Rhinebeck next year. She squeeeed! I guess that means we’re committed to it. Have a grand time in Madison. Can’t wait to see the photos.

  3. I thought of you while in Rhinebeck for my first time — even though, of all the people I saw and met and reunited with, I missed meeting Norma/Margene/Sandy (I did say hello to Cara and beautiful Meli though). But on our (Cheeseheads’) behalf, I took Toe Jam Packer sock yarn (acquired at WI S & W) to a blogger/designer friend whose husband is a Packer Backer (but who lives in NY so is deprived). So, a little bit of Wisconsin has been left in NY.
    Go Pack!
