“Late August sunshine nourishes maturing plants. Fruiting vines, like grapes, hang heavy with their bounty.” – Ed Lehming I’ve been spending more and more time at our home in Prince Edward County (PEC). One of the “county’s” claims to fame, and a major draw for urban tourists, are the numerous established and emerging wineries.

The swamps are not deep oozing bogs; they are filled with wonderful swamp maples which thrive in this unique… Read More

“Long, hot summer days and quiet country roads yield surprises and raise questions, to the curious.” – Ed Lehming There are many times when a drive down a backroad offers interesting sights. Most frequently I see an old abandoned building and wonder how it came to be in the state it’s in. I try to picture it when it was first built, envision a family starting a home. As a new house,… Read More
