I love driving this road, cresting the top of the hill, peering into the valley and surveying the rows and rows of apple trees. It was misty last Saturday when I took this picture. I had just finished doing the farmers' market and I was coming home after buying cheese and bread from Cricket Creek Farm in Williamstown. The apple trees were enthusiastically in bloom, the hills flush with spring greens, and I could see the river meandering down in the distance. I never know if the greens are more shocking and vibrant at this time of year because I waited through a long winter to see them again, or if they really are as spectacular as I think they are. But really, is there a more beautiful spot than this hill right here?
