Provincetown, Massachusetts

Provincetown is a very special place. I remember driving there with my sisters when I had just gotten my license. We drove up through the East end past all the beautiful cottages with gardens in bloom. I thought I'd never seen such beauty. It still hits me the same way every time I go.

The Bird Window

The "bird window", as we've dubbed it is a beautiful custom bow window which replaced a single double hung Cape window after 18 years of talking about how it would open up the room ;) We don't rush into anything :D but now we know what we missed. While I painted today on my 12x12 spider mums painting, I had a front row seat to the grackles and squirrels decimating the newly filled feeders of sunflower seeds. Only sporadically were there any songbirds, which are abundant here. The cardinal and his partner are always in evidence but the chickadees, yellow finches, purples finches, junkos, and tufted titmice and some other wren species were intermittent. Watching from the sidelines probably. It was a picture perfect summer day here on the New England shoreline. The breeze was straight off the water and the smell......delicious!

If I own it, It's for sale

Way out on Two Islands road is a steep drive that is lined with signs for antiques, tires, china and even a mobile home (they aren't mobile)! You have to love this person. This is the main sign!
