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
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.

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 ---
