A New England Cottage in Spring, Bartlett Pond, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

What a difference a season makes - after the browns and grays of winter, life is bursting out on this fine spring day in New England. (Panorama - click on the image to view in full width).

Small cottages like this one dot the landscape in New England with many located on any of the thousands of freshwater ponds and lakes throughout the region.  The cottages, or "camps" as they are often called, are usually small and often funky. Many of the area's kids, whose parents or families were fortunate enough to have such a place, will carry life-long fond memories of swimming, boating, playing, and lazing away many a warm summer's day in an idyllic setting.

It's astounding how fast spring gets going once it gets going.
