Wes Lavin's 2019 Great Springtime Pictures
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 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

These are some of the many photographs that Wes took early on in the 2019 springtime
Most of the photographs are of lupines in my wildflower field


Below is a picture of the cottage where Erika and I retired in New Hampshire's White Mountains
The blooms in front are on French lilac bushes alongside cranberry bushes with white blossoms
The bush on the left is a red Japanese maple
The step ladder in front is awaiting a friend named Jeff who will hopefully fix a window leak


The big tree that split is an old maple tree in our wildflower field on two acres south of our cottage
In June the tree's surrounded by our lupine and assorted other wildflowers
Mostly daisies. buttercups, and Iris in June before the black-eyed Susans bloom afterwards
There are also various aggressive weeds that bloom that I've no idea what to call them








I put this sign around to discourage people from breaking my old fence


June is also the season for beautiful blue Iris followed by yellow Lillies


Along the road on the east side of our cottage we have a hedge of wild roses that bloom in June and July
Wes took this picture of a wild rose


Down the road about a mile is an aged appaloosa mare





Wes wrote the following message in May 2019

I went to an arts festival in Colebrook on Saturday.  It was at the Mohawk Falls which is located just west of Dixville Notch and the now shuttered Balsams Hotel.  Known every four years for being the first in the nation to report their election results.






I photographed mostly the vendors and their wares.  If you look at their website you’ll get an idea of the beauty of the location.


Will put them in the mail to you.




I truncated the flag pole as I would have had to back up onto a busy highway to include it in the picture,
