Cedar rock Garden watering can copyright Kim SmithThanks to Elise Jillson from Cedar Rocks Gardens for a tremendously positive shopping experience. Every Cedar Rock plant is grown on the farm and every plant is lush, happy, and healthy. I had to ferry around several car loads of plants this afternoon and Elise was a fantastic help.

Cedar Rock Gardens will be open tomorrow, Monday, Memorial Day. For more information on their flowers and vegetables, CSA, and upcoming season of gorgeous cut flowers, check out Cedar Rocks Gardens website here and see a recent GMG post here: Fantastic Organic North Shore Veggie and Flower Farm Cedar Rock Gardens is Rockin!

Quote of the Week


“The statistics on sanity are that one American in four suffers from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they are okay, it’s you.”

Rita Mae Brown  (1944-     )

After obtaining degrees in cinematography, classics and English, Brown went on to doctorates in literature and political science. She began her writing career as a poet and screenwriter but gained much notoriety for her first novel Rubyfruit Jungle in 1973, which dealt with lesbian themes in an unusually frank manner for the time. Since the sixties she has been active in the fight for racial and gender equality, and was an administrator in the National Organization for Women for several years. She continues to write in the mystery genre, rides to the hounds, and plays polo.

Sugar Hill, NH Lupines

Every year the beginning of June the display of Lupines in this small NH Town of Sugar Hill is impressive!   At Exit 38 off 93 just past Franconia Notch, this little Town of less than 600 residents is easy to miss, but if you are there the first 2 weeks of June, stop by…it’s a lovely sight to see!   Hubster and I were up in the area yesterday so we went to check out the Lupine progress but there wasn’t much there….just a single Lupine bloom here and there, but in 2 weeks from now when the town holds a Lupine Festival  June 11-12, there will be an abundance of them.   If you are in the area, I would suggest stopping at Polly’s Pancake House for some great pancakes and also a tiny mom and pop store, Harman’s Cheese & Country store for their great Cheddar cheese (we stocked up!).   In the meantime, enjoy some shots I took from last year!

Weight loss and weight management can be complex. A collaborative approach may offer best outcomes. Talk to your physician about healthy ways to reduce and manage weight.
