Nervous Nellies

On our way home one day, in Maine, we swung by "Nervous Nellie's Jams and Jellies" over on Deer Isle. We were on the hunt for blueberry jam, but came across much, much more. Turns out that the several acres of grounds are covered in whimsical sculptures.

"The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,.............

And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon "

The proprietor's Mother had read the poem at her wedding....our daughter's wedding had this inscription on a mirror.........

We have to hurry home now, but we could have stayed and walked in the woods for hours!

  1. I just LOVE the photo of those car doors. Wonderful!

  2. Finally got my computer back. We had to disconnect everything while we painted the basement. Wow, I see your blog is flourishing as always.
