Wes Lavin's Panoramic Pictures of Bob Jensen's Flower Gardens in 2015
Bob Jensen at Trinity University

My photographer friend Wes Lavin stopped by the cottage in June and took some
special pictures. Wes is a much better photographer than me.
This week I will feature what Wes calls his panoramic pictures of our flower gardens.
The Twin Range and Presidential Range mountains were clouded over when he took this shot.

I should note that when Wes took all these pictures is was a very cloudy day
The Kinsman mountains were hazy and the Presidential mountains (including Mt. Washington) were clouded over
The shot below was taken in our birch grove separating our yard from our wild flower field

These flowers are on what we call our Pond Garden on the south side of the cottage
The pond is behind flowers

The Kinsman range was gratefully somewhat visible from our driveway on this cloudy day for Wes

These are flowers in what we call our Rock Garden on the west side of our cottage


Wes sent me a second and much larger set of 2015 photographs that I will
feature in future editions of Tidbits.
Here's a sampling of those pictures.
The shot below shows part of our wild rose front hedge
The Presidential Range on the left of the Twin Mountains  is totally clouded over

The birdhouses are all empty except for a tiny wren tenant
The many squaky crows up here make life miserable for song birds


Wes Lavin later sent me the following pictures he took up north in July.
How could anybody shoot this deer with anything other than a camera?

The moose are mysteriously dying by the tens of thousands throughout the USA.
What a terrible shame.

Wes Lavin is a great photographer.


Thank you so much Wes Lavin for your many pictures of our gardens and other interesting places in New England..

I see from my house by the side of the road
By the side of the highway of life,
The men who press with the ardor of hope,
The men who are faint with the strife,
But I turn not away from their smiles and tears,
Both parts of an infinite plan-
Let me live in a house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man.
Sam Walter Foss (1858-1911)


On May 14, 2006 I retired from Trinity University after a long and wonderful career as an accounting professor in four universities. I was generously granted "Emeritus" status by the Trustees of Trinity University. My wife and I now live in a cottage in the White Mountains of New Hampshire ---
