Now it's June, the
May flies are gone. But here's a shot
of Lynn gardening late in May. Blooms that are out: primrose,
(in the Japanese fern). We had a visit from a snapping
turtle looking for a place to lay her eggs. We saw one last
year, so she seems to be an annual visitor. Lynn found some large
tadpoles "sunning" themselves in Rand Brook.
Last weekend we went to North Woodstock, NH to
celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with the Dreyers (they were
married a couple months before us). We checked in at the
Wilderness Inn, and that evening we had dinner on a train (six-course
meal!). The ride was a leisurely 10 mph and lasted two hours. The
next day we hiked around some of the local parks. Here's
a page of pictures from the weekend.
Lynn has always wanted a trail through the north part
of our property. I've cleared a sixth-of-a-mile path through woods
and fields now. As you stroll you will see ostrich
low-bush blueberries, raspberries, a "Granddad
Pine," a large birch, an iron
boulder, a stream, and Lookout
Point. Here's a page of the tour.

I would flavour your coffee with poison."
