When we visited THE MUSEUM last year — exactly a year ago today — I was totally blown away by every facet of this lovely, amazing & beautifully maintained museum. Kudos. Bravo. Their flower display was a work of art worthy of a top-notch botanical gardens. I raved about it last year … see below.

Yesterday, on our way to hike Mount Kearsarge I made a point at stopping at this lovely museum. YES, IT IS OPEN. Alas, we didn’t go in. Both of us, I due to my age, are classed high-risk. So, we are doing our best to be responsible. Visiting an intimate museum didn’t, alack, fit the criteria.

But, we enjoyed the flowers & had a lovely chat with one of the volunteer gardeners.

The gardens are not as immaculately maintained as last year — for obvious reasons (& the heat wave has not helped).

But, it was LOVELY.

Not from a supermarket. SMILE. All from my 4.8-mile walk. Some new types. I was glad. I am lucky. It is such a joy. Glad you like them. Enjoy. Tomorrow is another day, another walk (probably a tad shorter) & hopefully more flowers. SMILE.

As always from MY travels of the day — but today’s travels definitely included a trip to Hannaford’s in Alton. I knew that I would be doing that during my morning walk. So, I didn’t go out of my way to snap too many pictures during my walk — just a few obligatory lilies that insisted on making their presence felt. So, the flowers at Hannaford were in bouquets. So … Nie, eh? Enjoy. Smile.

Lots of gorgeous lilies all over the place. But, there is only so much I can inundate you with. So, I look for variety. I think I did OK today. Yes, yes, always room for improvement. Enjoy. That is the end of the holiday weekend. Hope you had a great time. SMILE.

Did you see the picture with butterfly? SMILE. Lots of lilies. I like lilies. Hope you like them too. Hopefully a change of scenery tomorrow. So, maybe I can get you some new genres. Stay tuned. Enjoy. I did. SMILE.

Would you believe me IF I told you that it was not a very nice morning — weather wise — today? It wasn’t, BUT I persevere. And here are my photos to prove it. SMILE. Some good ones, maybe a few great ones too. SMILE.

Yes, nobody has sung about ‘raindrops on lilies‘ & I will grant you that lilies, despite their abiding allure lack the olfactory satisfaction of roses. But, come on. Cut some slack for the poor lilies. I think raindrops on lilies look as cute. SMILE. Enjoy.

I already raved about the astounding ‘Indian Museum‘. The amazing display of flowers that they had, all around the museum was something else. Wow. Such color. Such variety. Strategically planted, well tended. Feast for the senses. I loved them. As this blog will testify I am a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to lilies. So, when I tell you that this was the best showing of lilies I have seen in a very long time please take note. I am sure I have never seen some of the colors they had. Just a treat.

It really should be billed as ‘Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum & Flower Display‘.

These, in contrast to my recent pictures, taken with a $39.90 refurbished Nikon Coolpix S3600 I got my hands on (from buydig.com) yesterday. I think the quality is pretty acceptable. 20.1 MP, and 4.5 MB, in original format. What is a hoot, other than the insane $40 price, is that it is miniscule, 3.8″ x 2.4″ x .7″. Real small. Will easily fit into a pocket. Smaller than my wallet, and that is pretty slim since I never have any money in it. That is basically the reason I ended up with this cute little camera. I got it for Deanna, on impulse, when I got a ‘it is yours for $39.90, free shipping” e-mail offer from buydig.com. She needed a new point-and-shoot. But as soon as it arrived I knew she would not like it. Too small! But perfect for me — as an adjunct for my rather bulky Canon T3i (or whatever is to come). So I ordered Deanna a rather fancy Olympus, from buydig (which arrived today), and kept the Nikon. So that is the story as to how I ended up with a Nikon Coolpix that is smaller than the standard lens on my DSLR. It really is small. Gets lost in my palm and I have small hands.
