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”
Late summer, here in New Hampshire, is when the garden is in the twilight of its’ life. As the prolonged heat of mid to late summer moves in most plants get a bit ragged and tired. Even with extra water it is hard to keep blooms coming. As you can see that doesn’t mean the garden looks bare. We’ve actually had cooler than normal weather this year, which has felt great while out in the garden. Much less use of the AC too. I hope you enjoy the gallery. There should be one more coming!

Mid summer, here in New Hampshire, is when the garden has some of the best displays. As the heat of mid to late summer moves in it is hard to keep everything in bloom. This is when I tend to give extra water to everything and with my annuals I try to feed them a couple of times a month to keep blooms coming. We’ve continued to have large afternoon down pours this year, much like the south, which has helped with the watering schedule tremendously. I hope you enjoy the gallery!

Late spring, here in New Hampshire, is when the garden is in hyper drive and its stays that way after the beginning of summer. We’ve continued to have thunderstorms and large down pours, so the plants and the flowers are larger and lasting longer than might be normal. It makes for a delicious feast for the eyes that you can really savor! Continue reading “Late #Spring #Garden #Flowers”
Spring is finally underway here in New Hampshire! Lots of tulips are up and most of the early bloomers are strutting their stuff in the garden. Enjoy the photos! Continue reading “Early Spring Garden Photos 2017”
One of the best things about living in a northern climate is that we get a sustained period of each season. I really enjoy the cold and I love snow. Winter never gets old for me. Hoping you enjoy these winter photos as much as I do. Continue reading “#Winter Wonderland #Photos”
These are loose, abstract, free form monprints that as I was working with them developed a more complex composition. I have gone back and added a little watercolor, acrylic paint, and oil pastel to add to form and composition.
