Sharing the love…creative souls #18


I am sharing the love today for fellow writers and photographers who live in my neck of the woods. By woods, I mean the ones in New Hampshire. For those of you who may not be aware, 'Tahilla Farm' is located in the woods of New Hampshire, a state in the New England region of the Northeastern United States. It is a state I am learning to love, not only for the land but for the community and spirit of the creative souls in the region. 

I'd like to share the love for a two local writers and photographers today as I have a feeling, if you do not know them already, you will enjoy discovering them. 


Joseph Valentine Garden Photography

Joseph Valentine,  a country gardener 




I have told the "story of Joe" many times on my blog for it was Joe and a wonderful reader, Lisa, who led me to Tahilla Farm. We all met through Collage of Life and I will be forever grateful that we did. 

Joe has just launched a new website, Joseph Valentine Garden Photography, featuring his stunning photography and his blog, Notes from Juniper Hill. His blog is.. "The diary of a country gardener. thoughts, journeys, musings, ramblings, rants, raves and occasional drivel- with a horticultural twist." 

I can tell you that finding a favourite photograph amongst Joe's galleries is next to impossible…they are all works of art. I couldn't resist the beautiful aliums below…especially on this very cold winter's night. Read along on his blog, follow him on Facebook and or Twitter and you will not be disappointed. Promise!

Sarah recently heard the call of the wild woods and moved her family from Texas to New Hampshire. She is a resourceful and talented woman who loves cooking, travel, photography and writing. All of her interests are beautifully featured in her photography portfolio and blog,ThymeSomething I particularly love is a video she created from her recent trip to Florence. It's a must view..here







Sarah's journey has just begun. She is in the throws of finding the perfect property in New Hampshire…and may have found it. I am sure that it will be a beautiful journey from beginning to end. You can follow Sarah on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and her blog. Be sure to pour a cup of tea or coffee before you do, you will want to stay a while. Enjoy!



Between the woods and frozen lake…

We are packing our bags for the next stop before returning to Vietnam next week. The visit to Tahilla was productive but too short. We will return in June to a different landscape, warmer weather and a whole new view of Tahilla Farm. I am already counting the days...  
Stopping by woods…Tahilla Farm


Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

by Robert Frost, 1923
a past New Hampshirite

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.



And miles to go before I sleep…Tahilla Farm


WIth thanks for your very kinds words on my last post. So glad to see so many of us on the same wave length. 

With that…signing off
