Liz has lived in the Hudson Valley for 26 years – her father gave her first camera at 17 and he inspired her to go and explore!

Orange Poppy – a deer resistant perennial
Liz plans to visit the grounds of Vassar College in May.
“It’s just beautiful with a stream running through it. Dutchess (County) is further along season-wise than Ulster County because it’s lower down the mountain. The change in altitude makes a big difference.”
