I took a walk out to Celia Thaxter’s garden to take some photos. The garden really came to life during my two weeks on Appledore, and it is really stunning in person. Even more so once you learn that many of the plants are the same ones that were originally placed there in the late 1800s (they spend the winter in the UNH greenhouse). Mary and I spent a few minutes sitting on the porch, and reading over the “what was the most interesting thing you learned” question on the student’s exams. We all helped load gear on the R/V Kingsbury, and headed for Portsmouth harbor at 10:00 AM. Until next year, SML!
