Hadley has the nicest town common, marred only by crazy traffic along Route 9. It is wide, and handsosome; bordered with houses of similar gravitas even if they are from different eras. It is also bordered with maple trees, on both sides of both roads that run along it. I was so struck by the march of the maples (doesn't that sound like a nature movie?) along the edge, I had to try to cath them in a circle.
