Merry Christmas!

by Nathaniel W. Turner last modified Jan 01, 2011 11:47 PM
Mel and I are up in Maine at Spruce Hill Farm for the week, where we are being forced to eat delicious food, drink tea, and wine, play games, eat cookies, and sit by the fire with a good book. It's very difficult.
Merry Christmas!

This is actually a day-after-Christmas salad, but it's seriously festive.

I hope that you (our friends, family, and random web surfers) are enjoying similar torture.

Peace, love, and joy to all.


(They only have dialup here, but I managed to post a few Christmas photos anyway.)

Call for party music suggestions

by Nathaniel W. Turner last modified Jan 01, 2011 11:52 PM
Tell us about your favorite party music!

As we'll be starting to work up a playlist for the wedding/party soon, this is a perfect time for anyone who knows of a really great song, album, or artist to get in touch with us.

We have a good base of music, but will probably purchase some more for this event, and we're interested in any suggestions you might have.

Contact us at (or by some other means).

A new home for the Clematis

by Nathaniel W. Turner last modified Jan 01, 2011 11:47 PM
Earlier this spring, Mel and I bought a Clematis (a type of perennial flowering vine). A month or two later, it was high time to repot it.
A new home for the Clematis

The newly repotted Clematis sits on the east side of our house, right next to the door.

Our Clematis had outgrown its pot, and more urgently, outgrown the small trellis with which it came.  A couple weeks of procrastination and one trip to the garden store later, we have what you see in the photo.  Hopefully this will give the thing enough room to climb for a little while longer.

The Clematis is an interesting genus of plant, with flowers of all sorts of shapes and sizes.  I don't know what the flowers on ours will look like yet.  Stay tuned!
