Subtle Shadows



Before leaving for my trip to Maine, I reminded the Pres to water the houseplants, the hanging baskets in the yard and to fill the bird feeders.

However, since I didn't trust him to care for Alva, and didn't want to overwhelm him with tasks, I gave Alva her haircut earlier than normal this year.

As you can see she had, once again, grown beautifully, producing many  blooms.


By the way, I've had Alva since 2011 and still have no idea "what kind of plant" she is. The most important thing to me is that as a gift from Joyce and Bill, she has brought many fond memories back to the surface of my mind.

A Little Jumpy

Do you really think I could arrive home from my adventure without meeting new people?  Maine is such a beautiful state with it's massive pines, rocky coastline and very friendly people.  So...

In taking the scenic route, when I came across the bright orange signs that said "One Lane Ahead" because of road repairs, like everyone else, I slowed down.  The only difference between the other drivers and I were, that they didn't see what was going on.

Pulling over onto the edge of the field across from the action, once all the traffic passed and the road was quiet, I rolled down my window and asked if I could take a few shots.  Yes, more nice people...:)

Sweet Friends

Arriving at Schoodic Peninsula Visitor's Center early, when I approached the building, a man and his dogs were sitting outside.  Asking if I could pet them, he said, "These two are friendly, but you might want to stay away from Old Whatchamacallit."

Chuckling at his response (because I thought he just couldn't remember the dog's name) I walked over to pet the two Dachshunds on his right.  They were very friendly, nuzzling with me and even giving me a kiss.  It was then I asked what their names were.

"Well, we got Old Whatchamacallit first.  He was a rescue and in need of a home.  These two we got together.  This is Snickers and that's Skor.  They're all named after candy bars."
