Introducing "Emily", A Hand Painted Cloth Doll

Happy August!

The night sky was beautiful the other night, captured by a local photographer, the blue moon was indeed a sight to behold. The weather here in Vermont has turned less humid and a bit more Fall like and soon the Champlain Valley Fair will be in town for a week.  Mark and I like to go on a cool evening and take in all the sights and sounds and of course go crazy with all the foods that we don't normally eat because the calorie count is enormous. The corn fields are high and the produce at the local farm cooperative we belong to has kept our daily plates full of fresh organic vegetables and my freezer is full of strawberries and soon to be raspberries. Before they close in October I will add lots of tomato sauce, winter squash, chopped onions, peppers and corn. Have a great day everyone and enjoy the last days of summer!

My Garden Photos! Summer 2015

There is no flower I love more than a Lily so of course my gardens are full of them and the month of July bestows such beauty around my house because of them. When I retired in 2005, my employees gave me a gift certificate to a Lily farm in northern Vermont.  Mark and I spent over 2 hours wandering the gardens and picked out 12 varieties that have now multiplied and matured as we had hoped.  Here are some photos taken in the gardens this year.
