I can sort of remember August. Though with the woodstove fire crackling beside me, having walked around town today in fleece and a winter coat and bracing against the cold wind, and now digesting a dinner of roasted root & other vegetables (Brussels sprouts, fennel, carrots, potatoes, beets, shallots) with the welcome heat of the oven in the kitchen, it’s obvious August is long behind us. Still, we can relive it in memory and photos.
Walks and Sights in New Hampshire
Took about 10 woods walks, plus a day trip to Bedrock Gardens in Lee NH, and another to Odiorne Point State Park in coastal Rye NH. Also town walks, including one to the old cemetery, where some friends are buried.

OTHER NH TRAIL WALKS
I attended a couple of Zoom presentations this month, including some Boston.com cocktail-making with host Jackson Cannon, a talk on meteor showers and the Perseids in particular by Scott Negley through the Wells Reserve, and “Planting Your Path,” about being black in the horticulture field, by Abra Lee at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens; and I attended the Buddhist sangha one Sunday morning through Wonderwell.
House & Garden
Houseplants! Which I’m terrible with. And another photo of peaches, plus the garlic harvest.
