Had to Travel North to Find Pumpkins and Fall Air

I hadn’t been back to my old home town in New Hampshire in over a year, but recently I took a trip to New England. I expected to see some nice fall foliage, but it wasn’t anything spectacular. Probably because of the unusual heat and humidity that Hurricane Maria dragged up from the south. At…

Sea Plane at the Lake, Fall Photography

I took this photo of a little yellow sea plane one day as I walked along the road where I lived. The water was so flat and smooth and the plane was surrounded by color. I couldn’t resist taking this photo many years ago. The plane was usually docked at a lake house until winter…

Memories of April in New Hampshire

Every now and then I look back at my life in New Hampshire through the many photos I took while living there. Since Spring is upon us (in Florida it’s hard to tell) I decided to share some April photography and memories. In April the forsythia begins to bloom and the bright yellow flowers are…

Remembering Life in New England

This winter photography recently sold in my Zazzle store as a postcard. It seems fitting as a reminder of how far I’ve come. Since I am no longer living in the northeastern U.S., and back down in the humidity of Florida, this scene makes me a bit sad.  I was born in New England, and…

April is early Spring and planting anything outdoors that is susceptible to frost, in this area, is not advised until at least late May. These are the perennials that are blooming or just beginning to grow. Did you…

I’m Not a Big Fan of Springtime

I am not a big fan of Spring. When I lived in Florida our “spring” was one of the best times of year. In Florida, “Spring” is really not much different than any other time of year, it’s just not as hot as summer. We knew that the heat was coming back again shortly, so…

Experimenting With A Climbing Hydrangea

I don’t have a picture of one, but maybe one day I will – the climbing hydrangea will be something new to play with this summer. From what I’ve read about the climbing hydrangea (and there are many types – and I am researching which one I may want), is that it is a hardy…

Heading Into Fall and Not Doing Much Planting

The New England Fall season brings us a new set of circumstances to deal with and probably not many people are thinking about planting anything.  They are thinking about chopping, splitting and lugging firewood and maybe buying a new or used wood stove.  They are concentrating, like I am, on the cold season that is…
