Summer Dreams

I have been thinking about warm summer nights in Maine. The rustle of the wind through the canopy makes the sky feel all that closer.  It is not the awesome spectacle, but the warm breeze that carries a secret.

A Farewell to Maine

Naomi and I have had a great adventure in Maine for the last ten years. Much of what we have done and experienced can be seen in this blog. But Hakusan Creation and our adventures are not ending. We are moving on to new places and projects. Please come back to see what we are doing. Thank you for joining us on this journey.

Forest Fern

Last evening I took a walk through our forest. The last rays of sunlight were still penetrating the forest canopy, at least for just a minute or two. Click on the image for a larger view.

Pioneers

We have a line our young beach and birch trees that are pioneering our field. When we first moved to Maine, our field had been kept cut. We stopped that practice. One benefit was the blackberry briers that sprouted. The other was to watch the forest reclaim the land. This image was taken in the near infrared, which gives the foliage its radiant appearance.
