Autumn colors abound

Carol Sullivan

This time of year usually brings some spectacular color to these western Maine mountains. I'm not sure what the reason but this year has been kind of a dud. The maples went dusty pink and things are just drying up and falling. It's the exact opposite of last year at this time. I recall the drive over to Sugarloaf--I could hardly catch my breath for the glorious colors at every turn of the road! Well, the berry, fruit, and pine cone set has been extremely heavy this year. Portending of a cold and snowy winter--we all hope! The color going...


Summer is Winding Down

The leaves have started changing here in the western mountains of Maine. The light has changed--fall is coming. I know...it's not even September. This always urges me on to squeeze the most out of what's left of summer! We have had a relatively rainy and very buggy summer. But finally, this last week of August, we have perfect weather and no bugs. I love the change of seasons here.

So...we wait. I'm not putting the Christmas tree back up! I'll just keep dyeing things with spring and summer colors and wait...it'll get here and then we'll be complaining about black flies and mosquitoes. So, for now, we're bug free and I'm happy about that. 


Spring time is finally here!

Carol Sullivan

Here in the western mountains of Maine, spring takes its sweet time getting here. But I think we're on the way. Rain and daytime temps above freezing are making the snowpack reduce daily--and there's plenty of work to do there. Ice out on the lakes will be several weeks in the making. But a trip to the coast of Maine gives you that fast-forward to REAL spring! We overdress on those days we go to Augusta for shopping--we're still wearing boots and coats while down there it's 60 degrees and woman are wearing sandals and men are wearing shorts! All...
