I know I promised some pics

I know I have been promising some pics of our area for some time now, and here are a few.
The kids Grandparents were here last week and we took them to see this castle. It is very pretty with a wonderfully restored interior, and pretty grounds.
Here we are at the interior gate in the courtyard.
This is a lovely old windmill very near to our house, it is gorgeous and completely fabricated out of wood which has been faded to a soft silver grey by the centuries of northern German rains.
I love the shape of it with its peaked slate cap, and was surprised to see that there are many similar to this around where we live.
I always associated windmills with Holland...No?
An ok start?

;+) that is a way lovely start!

I will not be shooting any castles here, CT is not well known for our castles.

Lovely shot of the windmill...poppies are my very favorite. My dad was from Hungary and I remember visiting his family when I was a lass- we drove through fields of poppies-beautiful!
