This morning, a few dew drops on a spider web reminded me to keep things simple. Doesn’t it feel refreshing to declutter?

Rainy Daze
Last spring, in New England, we had  a long spell of wet weather. This is the kind of weather that offers spectacular opportunities to grab some surprising and exciting photos. One of our favorite rainy day destinations is Long Hill Gardens, a Massachusetts Trustees (of Reservations) properties in Beverly, MA.  

Take your camera to a rain-sprinkled garden and prepare for enchantment. #thetrustees #gardens #photography #nature
