Walking in Fall and Finding a Tree Tunnel

When I visited New Hampshire recently, one of the first things I wanted to do was get outside and take a walk. Fortunately my daughter lives in a rural, wooded location with a walking trail nearby. We could have walked down the road to reach this trail, but we decided to take the (nonexistent) path…

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…

Early Shopping For the Vegetable Garden

I headed over to House by The Side of The Road in Wilton, New Hampshire yesterday to look for hydrangeas and other flowering shrubs for my yard. I had never been in early spring to see what they had for vegetable plants, but thought I’d check it out. This place is huge. They place big…

Hydrangeas in a Basket Wedding Cake Photo

My daughter is getting married next year in northern New Hampshire. She is scouting out bakeries and bakers in the area and is very interested in Cakes by the Lake. As I was browsing the sites pictures of wedding cakes, I came across this beauty of a cake with blue and green hydrangea flowers decorating…

A Beautiful Day Just Before Spring

Happy St. Paddy’s Day to all and I hope you will be enjoying beautiful weather like we will here in the northeastern U.S..  It’s early yet, but clouds will be giving way to sun and warmth which has me wondering what to do that will get me outdoors. It’s too early to garden, and I…
