Summer is here! As lucky ones with water, our flowers are amazing…the clematis sported the largest flowers ever, and now the morning glory climbs the trellis in the front, with the autumn clematis close behind. Soon the daisies will pop and then the dahlia rush!
Strawberry picking is robust this year and raspberry/blueberry season expected to begin in early July. Already we see an influx of climbers for Mt. Monadnock. For those wishing a shorter hike, try Little Monadnock or Gap Mountain, minutes from our door. Fitzwilliam has trails with maps as well. Then bikers take note: the extended bike trail in Winchendon…8 miles away, is awesome. Then again we have rails to trails right here in Fitzwilliam.Check out the region: www.nhstateparks.org/…/monadnock-state-park.aspx-
