I’m trying to catch up with all the garden photos I’ve taken so far this year. This set is mid to late spring. Most are shot in our gardens, but a few are from other places around town. Hopefully you will find them as rewarding to view, as I have in planting and taking care of them.
The Antiques Appraisal Event earlier this season was a successful as we hoped it would be!
We had over forty people come to the event to get their items looked at by Caroline French, of Caroline French antiques. Items ranged from books to glassware, ceramics, small collectables and musical instruments, all the way to fine art. One of the most interesting items was a small Dutch oil painting a local couple brought in. I was able to talk with several people about the museum collection and we were able to secure a few new members. Continue reading “#FarmingtonNH Historical Society #Antiques Appraisal Event Recap”

Early October is the herald for the season of slow slumber in New Hampshire. The garden is beyond twilight and though most plants are preparing for winter, some things re-surge. The dahlias come back with a vengeance. One. Last. Hurrah.
We had great leafy vegetable crop; four kinds of lettuce and some awesome kale, which is very happy with the cold right now. We had a steady tomato crop and my peppers grew very well this year. Our pear tree is old enough to give us lots of fruit this year and they have been delicious. We had a big enough crop that we could give some to neighbors.
We’ve continued to have warmer weather for fall, though our nights are dipping as they should. It has been a little dry as well. Times of killing frost are almost upon us. I hope you enjoy the flower and plant gallery; this will be the last one for this year! Continue reading “Easygoing Early #October #Garden #Photos”
This post contains the online collection and archive information for The Museum Of Farmington History. I am the curator there as many of you know. Right now the online museum has a small representation of what we have available in the full collection, but as time goes on, many more items are being added at regular intervals. We have thousands of items to put in, so it will take quite some time. It will also take additional time to build exhibits and weave together the stories from people in town.
