Noticed this little fella on a nearby bush while warming up the BBQ last evening. Amazing how well they blend in!

Hoffman Park

I spent a little time on a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Hoffman Park in Hunterdon County, NJ. I may be taking some formal wedding photos there next month and wanted to see what the place has to offer.

Don’t Trim The Shade

Lunch In the Shade

A team of tree trimmers has been in the area for a couple of weeks now trimming trees around power lines. This of course is a good thing to keep electricity flowing during storms. But I was surprised to see them pull up in front of my house. Why? My electric service is underground! I soon realized they wanted to take advantage of the fine shade my maple and oak trees provide on the front lawn. I didn’t mind as long as they keep their chain saws in the truck!

I think it a little ironic they are benefiting from something they take away from some other people’s lawns…
