It’s been a while since the beaches opened up and here in Maine I noticed that the ocean had a much greener hue to it than usual. There were intense heat waves this Spring that must have been good conditions for phytoplankton. The temperature of the water was surprisingly warm for June, yet hardly any people and no one swimming.

20190915_150130Pawtuckaway State Park is located in Nottingham New Hampshire. There are several trails to take in this 5000 acre preserve, one being Boulder Trail. If one takes a look at the satellite image of Pawtuckaway’ s Mountain range, you can see a circular formation called a ring dyke made by an ancient volcano about 130 million years ago. During the Ice Age, approximately 18,000 years ago, a mile high ice sheet sat on top of this area and moved these gigantic rocks as it melted, known as glacial erratics. Now we have boulders resting amongst trees in a beautiful forest for people to climb and admire.

This Spring, I let the garden go to weeds, sorry, I mean pioneer plants and planted a few new flowers here and there. As usual, the milkweed brought lots of bumble bees, honey bees and butterflies. Stay tuned for ‘In a small corner of the world, there is a garden, Summer 2016.’

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.
