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.

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!

When I was six, NASA launched two of the most important spacecraft in their history, the Voyager probe 1 & 2. That’s a long time to be out exploring and sending back data. It’s the 40th anniversary of their launch and NASA has put out a few of promo posters. There are also two info graphics about the Voyager mission that may be of interest. Enjoy!

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!

I’ve pointed out before that Stan and I love the look and feel of the Art Deco period. We collect many things from the period and it influences many things about our house and the furnishings. One day I got it into my head that I wanted to create an Art Deco inspired piece for our family room. I knew I wanted it to be geometric, to be somewhat reflective, and I knew I also wanted to use acrylic skins for parts of it. After working on it for over a year off and on it is finally done. I’m calling this painting “Building Veiled Geometry.” Continue reading “#ArtDeco Inspired #Geometric #Acrylic #Painting”
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”
“What is happening at Standing Rock is directly connected to the treaties and the protection that they give to Native American lands and water. In the treaties it is stated that not the United States nor any other corporation or company would ever be allowed to alter the territory stated with in them.” Gina Adams Continue reading “Artist Gina Adams Honors History Of Broken Promises That Preceded Standing Rock”
It is feeling like spring here in NH, though we are actually in the middle of winter. Temps are creeping up during the day to fifty or sixty degrees in most places. A false spring. These two landscape paintings have been sitting around for a bit with the under painting work done. I really wasn’t sure where I wanted to go to finalize them. One is a little more clear as I see it being later in the day and the hazy version I imagine in early morning with lifting fog. I’m going to call these False Spring Morning & False Spring Afternoon.
