Washington County in Bloom!

I’ve lived Upstate for 12 years, and am just now discovering our gorgeous rural towns, roads, businesses and arts organizations. I drive upwards of 1,000 miles a month with my job as ACE Project Director, and while much of that time is spent in our cities of Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Hudson, Glens Falls and Saratoga, I’m occasionally — and very happily! — heading out to more rural towns during a wonderful time of the year. Here’s some scenery from Washington County, where the farm stands like Hand Melon Farm are bursting with flowers, and Ice Cream Man — where they make all of our own ice cream onsite, using an old-fashioned batch method of production and cream from a local dairy — is beckoning!
