Though she is now being homeschooled she wanted to continue playing flute with the ‘Alton Central School‘ (ACS) band. That is one of the neat things about homeschooling in New Hampshire. You can still freely participate in à la carte activities and even go to different classes of one’s choice. ‘Band’ was the only thing she wanted to do — and today was her Spring concert, at ‘Prospect Mountain High School‘. She had one. It was a good band concert.

This was her practicing for the concert, in the afternoon, on her trampoline.

So, the park was established on May 16, 1918. Neat.

This was just 2-years after the U.S. National Park Service was established — and around the same timeframe as the founding of Acadia.

I am not sure how widely this was marked and celebrated in New Hampshire. It should be a BIG deal. We, the State, make a LOT of money from the Park.

Well, the next time I am there, and I am sure to visit this year, I will tip my hat and remember that this is the Centennial Year.

I am terribly conflicted when it comes to captive animals, especially gorgeous specimens such as these two, fully mature Mountain Lions. While I fully appreciate that we would never get to enjoy animals such as these if not for captivity, it distresses me, much, that we are in essence keeping them prisoners without giving them a choice or chance. To me, it is like slavery!

We have seen these two mountain lions since they were BABY cubs! That must have been about 8 or 9 years ago. We somehow got invited to an evening reception to welcome these to cubs that had been acquired from ‘the Rockies’. They were little. No bigger than a small dog. And now … Fully grown and so majestic and graceful. I just hope that they are happy.

Seeing these Mountain Lions is always the highlight of my visit to the Science Center. I am awe of them. Such beautiful animals.

Definitely worth going to see. Enjoy.

We go to the ‘Squam Lake Science Center‘ through Meredith — and also come back that way. So, today it kind of made sense for us to stop at Giuseppe’s Pizzeria for dinner given that it is one of our perennial favorites. Our second Sunday in a ROW at Giuseppe’s and we are NOT complaining. It was, as ever, good.

They had a lot of flowers out for Mother’s Day. I took a few pictures which I wanted to share with YOU.

Mother’s Day 2018, up here in New Hampshire, was really like the first day of Spring after what has been a chilly start. But, Mother’s Day proved to be exceptional.

Part of the reason of going to the ‘Squam Lake Science Center‘ was to see what flowers they had in bloom at their ‘Kirkwood Gardens’. It was definitely not in full swing but they had more flowers than we had expected. So, that was a bonus. About 98% of what is shown above were from the ‘Kirkwood Gardens’

Warning! Herein starts the ‘Flowers …’ posts for the Summer/Fall of 2018. {Smile} If you do not like flowers you should NOT look at these posts. They will be full of flowers. Sorry.

This is a FANCY nursery cum gift center in Meredith, New Hampshire. We drive by it often, but had not stopped until today. Very impressive and this is but the start of the 2018 season. We even bought some plants.

Enjoy. Spring has finally arrived in New Hampshire, though it is still atypically cold for this time of year.
