Wes Lavin's 2017 Summer Part 2 --- Sugar Hill Festival
Bob Jensen at Trinity University 


My friend Wes Lavin is a better photographer than me.
Firstly, he has better equipment than me.
Secondly he travels all over New England just to take pictures in different seasons.
Most of my photographs are closer to home, and I'm not really into photography
Wes is into photography as a retired school teacher

These are some of the many photographs that Wes took early on in the Summer 2017 season
These photographs were taken during the Sugar Hill Lupine Festival of 2017

Sugar Hill's "downtown" only has one store
It's called Harmon's Country Store
Beside this store is the Sugar Hill Post Office
Even though it's only open five hours per week we're lucky to still have a post office.


The Sugar Hill Lupine Festival of 2017 took place too early in June
The lupines had not yet blossomed
Besides the Festival takes place in downtown Sugar Hill
Which is almost two miles from the lupine fields

There was a team of beautiful Belgian horses that didn't really go anywhere
But it was worth the price of the ride (zero)



And there were little tents set up between the Post Office and the Sugar Hill Town Hall and Museum
The town hall is called the Crapo Memorial Town Hall (I'm serious)










In spite of being too early for lupine blooms
Sugar Hill had a cute little village festival to celebrate our lupine
The daily highlight year around of course is Harmon's Country Store


And the village museum is open Friday and Saturday afternoons all summer long ---


And there were beautiful lupine fields in June of 2017
It was, however, a cold and rainy June that made them bloom later than our little Festival of celebrating their honor

These are a few pictures Wes took later in June of my wild flower field with the "split" maple tree




Our cottage is about two miles from the where the Sugar Hill Festivals are held



In a subsequent edition of Tidbits I will feature some of Wes Lavin's artistic photographs of our lupine.


Wes Lavin travels about northern New England taking pictures of farms, fields, mountains, animals, country fairs, and festivals. One of his favorites settings is the Sturbridge Country Fair in Vermont ---
That's more of an event than the Sugar Hill Lupine Festival, but here in Sugar Hill we don't want to attract too much attention or too many tourists
