I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

We have had a week or more of rain. The garden is growing but some of the flowers are waiting for sunlight to open.

Irises not fully opened.

Clematis waiting for a sunny day.

Knockout rose bud.

The lilies of the valley have always liked the moisture.

The glen is in full leaf with that new leaf green color that only lasts for a short time. It's the color Sarah selected for her bedroom, too.
