Wes Lavin's 2018 June Part 1 --- Featuring an Old Split Tree in Our Wildflower Field
Bob Jensen at Trinity University 


My friend Wes Lavin is a better photographer than me.
Firstly, he has better equipment than me.
Secondly he travels all over northern  New England just to take pictures in different seasons.
Most of my photographs are closer to home, and I'm not really into photography
Wes in into photography as a retired school teacher

The is a historic road sign at the north end of our road
In the 1900s Sugar Hill was part of the Lisbon territory
Pecketts, SHH, Hotel Lookoff, and Profile were large resorts that have since been torn down
Our cottage was moved to the site of the big Sunset Hill House Hotel

These are some of the many photographs that Wes took early on in the Summer 2018 season
In Part 1 I will feature his photographs of a huge split tree in our wildflower field

In June Sugar Hill has an annual lupine festival
Our lupine field is a part of that festival featuring lupines all along our Sunset Hill Road
Wes comes up to photograph this festival both along the road and in downtown Sugar Hill

This is a picture of our cottage taken by Wes
Our wildflower field beyond thegrove of trees of the left side (south) is not visible in this picture


This is part of our wildflower field on the other side of the grove of trees
Hundreds of people come to both photograph and paint these lupines in June every year
I remind you that these photographs were sent to my be my friend Wes Lavin


I will now feature photographs of the split maple tree in this field of lupine
A huge limb broke off on the south side of this tree when the tree split about 10 years ago
That limb had to be sawed up and hauled off


Each winter I anticipate that ice in the split trunk will finally destroy this living tree
But so far so good --- maybe the tree will hang on here for the rest of my life





To the southeast of my wildflower field is a small hotel called the Inn at Sunset Hill and Its Mountain Golf Course




On the opposite side of our wildflower field to the west is my small barn


Near my barn is the golf course club house in need of repair


There are other wildflowers in our wildflower field.
Daisies are blooming now and other flowers bloom later on





This is another big maple tree in our wildflower field that's not yet split open


Next week I will feature pictures taken by Wes of the 2018 lupine festival
Here's a picture of a beaver lodge in nearby Pearl Lake
