Purple Mountains Majestry...White Mountains Bloom - in June.

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Alpine Lakes Real Estate Inc., NHRE# 02863

 

Purple Mountains Majesty…the hills are alive with the view of Lupine. The North East has finally found its footing in summer, the wild mountain flowers are blooming. The White Mountain are no longer white, they’re green and purple.

                          Lupine.

I love the Iris we have in our yard, but they go so quickly. It seems like they only bloom for a little over a week and then they’re gone, so I’ll enjoy them while I can. The Lilly’s and Butterfly bushes aren’t ready, but they’re open in time.

 We are never bored with the weather in the Mountains - Last Thursday I woke to temperatures in the 30's and this Thursday the mid-day temperatures where over 90 degrees.

   

                                                                                              

For my Friends who live in the southern states...check out the snow still on the  Highest peak in the North East. Mount Washington at 6,300 feet still has snow in the Tuckerman's ravine area... My Son and some friends hiked the ravine and skied in May. This extremely steep high altitude snow field can only be skied by hiking it first (no lifts) which keeps the novice skiers away and only the serious hikers on the trails.

Depending on the depth of the winter snow we can find snow on  Mountain Washington till Nearly July...and it's not unheard of to see the first snow of the year as early as September at this elevation.

We Take Summer as long as we can have it. We joke in the Mountains that we have Ski Season, Mud Season, Bug Season and off season...not true we have four beautiful and distinctive seasons to enjoy the weather and seasonal sports that change with the weather. When the temps hit 40 we consider that tee shirt weather.

Steve - The flowers are beautiful. The mountain shot is other-worldly. The last snow shot looks like fun! Great photos, as usual:)

We have a rather large lupine festival every June in Franconia NH...the Summer home of Robert Frost. If you are going to be in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in June you have to come check it out.

Each of those are awesome shots Steve and together almost overwhelm the senses.  I miss the hikes from peak to peak, valley to valley when you never knew what weather you would encounter in a day, such fun!

Wow. Those flowers are fantastic. This must be what they meant when they wrote the song and mentioned "purple majesty".

Thanks for sharing.
