THE GREEN YEAR

The saga of Sugarbridge (Remember Stillmeadow and Sugarbridge in 1953?) expands with the gift of ""the green year"". Plans seemed wholly feasible, faced with a full year ""at home""- but the days and the weeks and the months went by, and the unexpected intervened. Things were accomplished- but new plans grew out of old. And the year's end showed what every householder, every gardener eventually realizes, that a one-year plan becomes a five year plan, and that in turn a ten year plan. The fun's in the dreaming and the planning as well as in the doing. And this gives one full measure of the joys of country living, day by day. There's nothing particularly new or exciting about it. Just the quiet joy of meeting old friends and neighbors, savoring familiar sights, discovering new enchantment, as Sugarbridge in Pennsylvania's lovely Chester Valley becomes intimately one's own. Drawings by Barbara Webster's husband, Edward Shenton, who plays a major role in ""the green year"".
