Years ago I came from London to a part of western Massachusetts called “The Berkshires.” I had never heard of it, and had trouble pronouncing it correctly (burke-sures). Since we’re entering the peak summer season now, I thought I might provide a bit of background for those who don’t know the region.
Nicely done piece. I haven’t been to the Berkshires for many years. You have me fired up to remedy that soon.
I too came from England. To New York in 1954. Retired to the Berkshires to be near children here in Richmond. Love the Berkshires. Although gardening here is harder than in Bucks County PA where we had a country residence. But it keeps me young!Gardening and reading are my chief pleasures.
Lovely, just lovely — especially for us book lovers. Thank you!
