Rockhounding Around Lovell

Did you know that Oxford County, ME, is one of the most densely populated in the US with gemstones? From tourmaline to quartz, to beryls and micas, gemstones and minerals are so abundant that you can find them even in your local gravel pit or in your backyard!

Looking for stones can be a fun family adventure, where your kids can get outdoors and learn about an aspect of the landscape that they perhaps hadn't studied before! Check out the Greater Lovell Land Trust's website to see if any guided walking tours are being offered soon on the geology of Lovell!

Summer Garden Update

Bill has been hard at work keeping the gardens looking gorgeous as always! Filled with Rudbeckia, Bee Balm, Milkweed, Phlox, Golden Glow, Clover, Queen Anne's Lace, and so much more, the front gardens got a good clean up today.    

The backyard gardens, filled with fruit trees and vegetables, are also doing well. With the recent sunshine and rain, the gardens are more verdant than ever!
