Dahlia in Portsmouth

For the first time my wife and I have our very own garden that we’ve been tending to this summer.  This past week we were greeted with a surprise after returning home from a weekend away – a dahlia fully in bloom.  I didn’t used to have much of an appreciation for flowers, but I must say that this landscaping thing is fun.

Up Close on the Piscataqua

I’m introducing a new series with today’s posting.  Profiles of the people on the industrial boating traffic on the Piscataqua River.  In today’s shots, the Asphalt Eagle navigates the Piscataqua River and two crew members enjoy the view from the freighter’s bow.
