Zones 5, 6 and beyond....


When we heard the term "pristine" in description of Conway Lake, our hearts commenced in song. Richie and I love the time in our kayaks, exploring the shoreline, and admiring the crystal clear water. We continue to become more familiar with the natural plants by identifying them by name. A keener eye has developed to what might be invasive. Fortunately, we have only seen the evil invaders that Cliff passes on to us in sealed containers. At the beginning of the summer, there was an abundance of water naiad, pipe wort, bladder wort, lily pads, floating hearts, pickerelweed, water shields and tons of grass. To date, the water naiad is not as prevalent.


We are assigned zone 5 & 6, but we tend to stray to other areas like 7 & 8, 15 & 16. Haven't gotten to Pentacook Cove, yet. But all the places we have been are in greater abundance of lilies, pipe wort, and grasses.


I hope this finds you all well and enjoying these last days of summer. We look forward to seeing you on Zoom, Saturday October 1st. That's Richie's birthday...so feel free to sing!!
