Lubec, Maine had a nice feature today in the Working Waterfront: http://www.islandinstitute.org/working-waterfront/away-influx-helps-pump-lubec. Yesterday I happened to take lots of pictures of the boats on the waterfront area so I was inspired to do some kaleidoscopes today since the weather has changed to rain.
This blog will show examples of my work and also document my attempts to learn new techniques. Please respect my copyright to images

Apple Blossom and Lilac time in Downeast Maine and the Canadian Maritimes
We cut around our 17 apple trees last fall and have a wonderful show of blossoms this year. I guess the trees appreciated not having brush and fireweed competing for the nutrients. Our 100 year old lilacs are poised on the brink of blooming if it ever get's summer and warm enough. The lilacs and fruit trees were blooming in Santa Fe over a month ago so it is very strange to just be entering that period again over a month later. Since we try not to heat our house this time of year, I have been enjoying using the oven to create a little warmth and thus I have been baking and cooking a lot! My latest creation, wheat free blueberry scones, became a kaleidoscope of course. All photos taken June 6th, 2015.

For some reason some of our apple trees have no blossoms, some have pink blossoms and some have bright white blossoms!
