Summer Colors in the Yard in Prospect CTOur spring blooms were plentiful, and the summer astilbes and day lilies don't last very long. It is always pleasant to look into the yard and see the wall of blue hydrangeas that last so long.We had some rain during the night and the water dropped the blossoms, but with some sun they will spruce right back to smile. Summer Colors in the Yard in Prospect CT

Where a Public Notice that is Seen by All in Prospect CTThere are advantages to living in a small town. Such is the case with Prospect, CT where the center of town is the junction of 2 state roads and long lights.The town hall sits just off the intersection with an expanse of green in front, very much visible from the roadway.I have seen as many as 12 signs on that expanse letting all know what is coming.It is also the location of political rallies in season as the candidates want to be visible.This one was just added, and I will seek out the schedule of artists as it is always an entertaining evening.Not your typical bulletin board, but very few in town can say they don't know what is happening. Where a Public Notice that is Seen by All in Prospect CT

Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT 6 The phrase regarding months of rain followed by colors of flowers is a bit messed up in the Northeast as we had a lot of rain in March, and some warm weather with colors in April and we are in May which should be a cornucopia of colors and we have been wet and cool.But, we still have colors.We have a 140 ft driveway, and it is a massive bed of flowers. Iris, daylilies and lily of the valleys. The iris are starting to show their colors but they don't stay around long.At the center of the garages is an azalea that is always last to bloom.Along the utility shed are the hydrangeas, which are getting their leaves and should start to show the pods shortly.Soon the hostas will run their sprouts and offer the white colors and the varirty of colors with their le...

Friday Flags: The Prospect CT Green with No One AroundThe center of Prospect CT is a 4-way intersection of state roads. As one takes the tun to drive down RT 68, one can see the Prospect town green, or more specifically the flagpole. As I went down, I caught the flag fluttering in the wind, and I took a detour to see if I could get a good shot.I caught one with the Veteran's Memeorial in the background.   I felt that If I waited just a bit longer, I could get a better one, and was rewarded.A crisp breeze, a blue sky for a background and a proud flag to share.We are a great Nation and yet so many take far too much for granted and have little consideration or knowledge of how we got to this reality.Friday Flags: The Prospect CT Green with No One Around

 Uncharacteristic Nighttime Lights in CT This past week has been unusual with weather for many parts of the world. Scientists were warning of strong solar storms that would create issues on our planet, some of which could not be controlled.In the Midwest gps systems that farmers needed for spring planting were affected as the flares that hit us were largely geomagnetic.  There were concerns with communications being disrupted as well as power grids.Something that was seen as a once in a lifetime bonus were the possibilities of nighttime lighting displays not common so far south.There were enough news stories letting people know that lights could be seen at night. It would be necessary to get to a high enough elevation and hopefully get very little interference from residential lighting....

Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT 5We have had some warm weather this past week here in Prospect CT, and more of the colors are showing up to be appreciated.The phlox is fully blooming and starting to spread.  I will need to trim it back a bit.Right behind the rock garden and to hide a rock that was too hard to remove is a pink weigela shrub, which seems to get larger blossoms each year. Up closer to the house are the azaleas which are all strutting their colors to be appreciated.Along the driveway the day lilies are not yet to be appreciated, but at the bottom the bleeding hearts are showing their different shades and colors.As I walk around the yard I do not see many beds where colors are ready to emerge, so I will just need to appreciate the flowers for whatever time they have left.Blo...

Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT  4We are almost completely there with the spring blooms in Prospect.  The daffodils have just about run their course although there are some hanging on.The phlox at the bottom of the yard that we call the rock garden is in bloom with a carpet of pink. The stragglers of daffodils add some tall color and one can see the choke cherry just behind them all starting it's pink covering of flowers.Closer to the house, the white azalea bushes are showing their colors, and the daffodils are just about done here.The pink azaleas are asking for attention and the reds are just chillin' for their burst of color.It is time for the flower beds to receive their mulch coating so all will look nice and fresh for the summer.Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT  4

Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT,  3Early Sunday afternoon of last week, I was driving into Prospect and as I passed the Medical office building, I was taken enough with the view to turn around and appreciate the almost barren lot.In another few weeks, it will not be as impressive a view even though the trees will be all fully loaded with leaves.The landscaping is very well groomed. On this day the parking lot of adorned with blossoms on the trees as well as azaleas in blossom.When loaded with cars and leaves on the trees it may not even get a second glance as people hustle into the building for appointments.The ground will have a white coating for a while and then all the colors will blend, but on this afternoon, I at least was taken with the colors.Blooms A Poppin' in Prospect CT,  3

Blooms A Poppin in Prospect CT, 2Our weather was slightly stalled this week as we had cooler temps and a bit of rain.The spring colors may have been slowed, but they still showed additional presence.The pink weeping willow is showing its colors well and is beautiful when they flow with the wind.The rock garden at the bottom of the driveway is coming to life and the daffodils have blossomed and greet all that drive by.The phlox in front of it is starting to show signs of spring and that white/pink carpet should be in full blossom shorty.It's still too early for the azaleas and the pink of the choke cherries will show itself shortly as well.It's spring in the northeast and much appreciated as well.Blooms A Poppin in Prospect CT, 2

Blooms A Poppin in Prospect CTSpring is starting to show signs of its presence here in Prospect, CT and a welcome sight it is.I was walking up the driveway and took a look at the front yard and the blossoms that are displayed.  It made me smile for its depth of color and it was mainly the daffodils.Even the hyacinths that were barely showing a week ago, were standing high.Closer to the driveway, where I had a tree removed, the daffodils are filling in nicely.In the back yard, the hedge of forsythias are almost at full bloom, and with it will come the pollen that signifies spring for those that suffer from allergies.Not quite three as yet are the mountain laurel with it's pinkish-red color.We are supposed to have warmer weather this week so these colors will certainly progress well.It is...

Total Eclipse of the Sun 2.08.24The celestial bodies offer up images on a somewhat frequent basis, which is when the path of one celestial body is blocked by another and the image or shadow falls on the last of the 3.It can be in the form of a lunar eclipse, when the earth takes a path between the sun and the moon, and the earth's shadow is shown on the lunar (moon's ) surface, or as happened this past Monday, a solar eclipse in which the moon aligns in the path between the earth and the moon and blocks the sun from the earth.There are numerous eclipses annually that fall all over our planet, and on occasion they are viewable from land.This latest eclipse was viewable in a swath across our country and passed though the Northeast. It began around 2:44 and lasted maybe a total of 15 minut...

The NCAA Men's Tournament is Down to its Last GameThe practices started back in late August of 2023 and for many the games were for records in very early November. Back and forth the 2 teams that meet on Monday night jockeyed nationally while taking care of their business within their conferences. The rankings meant little except for the prestige it carried, and maybe to move an eye of a potential recruit to wonder what it would be like to wear that uniform.It's almost all over now, and on Monday April 8 at 9:20 EST, it's tip off to see who remains the last team with a win.UConn Huskies vs Purdue Boiler Makers  Both are #1 seeds, with UConn be recognized as the first #1.  Purdue has never played for a National Championship, while UConn is playing for their 6th, and also playing for back...

Spring 2024  March Rains Led to April FlowersTh expression has always been April showers lead to May Flowers.  In years past that may have been the case, but I noticed while taking a light stroll along the yard this morning, that the flowers aren't waiting for much warmer weather.In fact, they aren't even concerned that the spring debris cleanup has yet to be done.We have daffodils all over the yard and as they are so good about regenerating themselves, they are not only stronger but also thicker.I know there are several varieties of daffodils, but the best I can do is large and small, yellow and white.Same with the hyacinth, and at least one of the clumps has far more this year than they had last year but still a little too early for them to fully blossom.It just cheered my soul to see...
