Sometimes it’s nice to walk with no destination in particular in mind. I found myself doing just that over the weekend and was reminded that our quiet corner in the country holds many simple pleasures with its birds and blooms.
We are nestled in the foothills of Mt. Sunapee, and we have a view of the some of the windmills on the hill in the neighboring town. On this day, there were a few clouds, but the windmills were clearly visible standing like sentinels over-looking the valley.
The Goshen Ocean
The weather this weekend has finally provided an opportunity to get out and about. I spent some time at the lake next to our house yesterday watching the loons and ducks, and just enjoying the changes that Spring brings to the hills and mountainsides of this area of New Hampshire. The Goshen Ocean, as it is known to the locals, is a quiet corner of New Hampshire where there is always a lot happening with the wildlife and the everchanging scenery. Spring is one of my favorite times here!
The much-needed showers we’d hoped for in April are falling today. A bit of a damp start for May, but the flowers appreciate it, and the fire danger has been dropped to LOW.
We didn’t have many April showers, but I’m hoping the lack of rain won’t affect our May flowers. We had some beauties last year!
Sometimes the weather will cooperate, and sometimes it won’t. But this is, after all, New England! So while the weather this past week wasn’t prime weather for getting the garden cleaned out, it did make for some nice photography ops. What better way to spend a rainy day than doing some post-processing magic!
I am excited that one of my art prints has been chosen to be in the 2012 Juried Regional Exhibit at the Library Arts Center in Newport, New Hampshire! The Opening Reception is on Friday, May 4th, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Please stop by and say hello. The exhibit will run from May 5th through June 15th.
