Country Living

A cup of coffee with my rescue dog Dillon
is a great start to my day when in New Hampshire.
No makeup, still in my pjs with a sweater as it was early!

I love the landscape here and want to share it with you!
Black Raspberries ripening on the vine in the front yard
A transplanted daylilly from Boston finds a home here
A country bouquet for the kitchen table.
Nothing fancy, just whatever I could pick.

Wild daisies abound throughout the yard
We pick blueberries from our patch all summer
We have 90 blueberry bushes and this year they are loaded!
You can see our patch on the back left corner.
And the lake is off in the distance.
A wild pale pink rose grows along the front near the street
A line of blue spruce trees grow a little larger year by year.
There are old stone walls that ring the property.
It used to be a farm.
There is a peace and serenity to this place. 
 A new rose for our deck planter is called Lady X.
A hybrid tea rose in a lovely lavendar pink.

I love New Hampshire in the summer.


  1. ooooh - I am jealous - How pleasant!!!

  2. oh my gosh!! *sigh* my heart skipped a beat I think... the landscape is gorgeous.. gorgeous... I am sooooooooooo jealous as well..

  3. Dillon looks like a great dog, ready to start the day! And the fruit looks luscious! We have an apple and a pear tree and they are both loaded this year as well! (Pear wine, anyone?? LOL)

  4. What a lovely place, it looks so relaxing! Your header looks great, I see you've picked the best of both looks.. I like it! take care, Maryann

  5. I love New Hampshire too. I haven't been there for ages because I live in SC (for the last 28 years or so). We went climbing on Mount Washington for our honeymoon. A year later our first child was conceived on a camping trip in the white mountains. ;-) . So nice memories there. We used to have a cottage in Vermont and we would spend many summers picking raspberries and blueberries . Sometimes we would make blueberry dumplings, and many other things too. I loved fresh sweet trout for breakfast!

  6. Dear Amy,

    your garden looks so peaceful and has a fantastic view. I would also walk around every morning and welcome every new blossom.
    I love your dog :-)

    Have a nice day !

  7. What a wonderful, inspiring spot you have- and Dillon seems pleased as well!

    Enjoy the view- Thanks for sharing!

  8. Aww, your post is so wonderful to me. I grew up in NH and my heart will always be there. Living in California now and wow, just the thought of my beautiful home state makes me want to get on a plane. Great photo's.
