A typical exhibit. All the birds in the museum were hand-carved exquisitely by the late Bob Spears.

Our work will be on display there until October, giving us and others plenty of time to enjoy the museum and its amazing environs.

The backyard exploded with the memories of deep winter, strangely cast against sunshine typical for spring.

A variety of cloud shapes and layers helps to deepen the quality of the blue. The world's most amazing dog companion doesn't hurt either. The dog is off in the distance, by the way, in the shot above, scouting for soft light and booming contrasts.

The snow bends this pine bough, but only temporarily. This shot was taken at around 8 AM. By noon, this snow will melt under the weight of the sun.

Our favorite poets prodded us to remember their best lines in the presence of these skies.

The distant proximity of the hills of New Hampshire, as glimpsed from the top of Gillette Hill, (Wilder, in Hartford, Vermont.) The magnetic background nearly overpowers the chalky blue hills perched along the horizon.

There were two paths: one went up, the other left, but it was this one that drew her nose.
