New Hampshire in the winter after a snow storm. Heavy wet snow and an overcast sky make for a chilly, contrasting image.

This snow sticks to everything it touches, making space appear more ‘closed in’ and the air so very quiet, kind of like what fog does.

It was only after I situated the aqua garden just so with irises, water lilies and stones that a frog came by.      Introducing Maurice, 2016summergarden43the star of the garden this summer. He is a bronze frog, green face and bronze body, very contemplative and still around even though it’s getting colder at night.

There was a mini Maurice as well, in the smaller pond.

who disappeared a few weeks ago after being visited by big Maurice. Hummm…Hope he’s hibernating.

The Pickerel Frog who has a nice flashy coat

is in front of the house. She seems to love this blue pot filled with water and Elephant Ears. It’s situated right under the porch light where moths gather. I’m guessing this frog is a “she” because smaller versions of herself were nearby for a while, until they ventured off to who knows where.

Stayed tuned for Part 2, In a small corner of the world, there is a garden, Summer 2016.

That’s right, more frogs, flowers and bees.

When you sit on this pier in Great Island Common, New Castle, the sky seems to wrap around you. This night, after a rain storm, a grand stage of clouds hovered over and just as the sun went down, it’s light set the sky on fire.
