We went to our first Boston Red Sox game on Sunday. Unfortunately they broke their six game winning streak by losing to the Seattle Mariners 5-0. But Fenway Park was just a magical as it always has been and we got see a crazy number of double plays turned. Let's hope the Sox do better on their road trip.

Weathersfield Parks and Recreation have announced their fifth annual Weathersfield hikes schedule. See below for dates and times. In between rain drops, I put out the hummingbird feeders and immediately a male was sitting and sipping. Got the garden turned over-thanks Jay. And I'm ready to put in some seeds. The seedlings are in the garage waiting to be planted.

This weekend I saw a great Cajun band, visited a children's room in the Norman Williams Public Library and watched some really fast people run 6.1 miles in Woodstock.

The Revelers returned to New England and to Manchester Vt. on Friday night. Last time through they played at Billsville House Concerts. Friday they played at the Inn at Manchester but the show was put on by Billsville. 120 tickets had pre-sold and there were many walk-ups to the newly renovated barn.






I was up early Saturday to cover the 11th annual running of the Road to the Pogue in Woodstock. The 6.1 mile course wound it&…

Are you ready for Mother's Day? It's Sunday, May 14. And even if you don't have a mom to celebrate with, you can bring some joy to a special woman in your life this weekend. Many area restaurants are hosting their annual Mother's Day Brunches but if sharing a meal isn't your thing, how about getting the home gardens ready. The Ascutney Volunteer Fire Department is hosting their annual plant sale on Saturday and I for one plan to be there bright an early to get the best selection of annuals and perennials. And if the rain ever lets up I hope to get the garden turned over, the outside windows washed, and maybe even move the garden furniture outside. It's also time to hang out the hummingbird feeders in anticipation of their return to our area. I feel like we'd moved to the Northwest with all this rain. I hope it means a long and happy growing season. Did I mention my peach trees are blooming?
