Don't most events in our lives happen by chance? I hope to share with you the chance observations and experiences of my travels. And I offer a chance for you to comment as well. Add to that my fond affection for my late cat, Chance, who was afflicted with feline leukemia and died of cancer, and you will see why "chance" has a special meaning in my life. By chance, the adventure continues and can be shared...
The weather looked rather iffy when I got up on Saturday, but we decided to brave the elements and head to Went'z Garden Tour, presented by Wentz's United Church of Christ. The promo said it would go on rain or shine, but we were glad the rain held off until late in the day. It was a great tour of gorgeous gardens! Here are a few shots from some of the stops.
First up: Center Point Pond on Valley Forge Road, Worcester. The fish were cool to see … and if you want a fake hippo head for your pond, you can get them there!
The multitude of flowers, water features and feeling of serenity -- and awe -- abounded at the Kimmel home near Eagleville:
Equally impressive was the Livezey home in Collegeville:
Here are a few other shots from other stops along the way on the tour…
Such a wonderful day… If you missed it this year, check it out in 2016!!
FINALLY! I am getting around to posting some photos from a trip to Vermont that I was able to squeeze in during May with my daughter. It had been a few years, so it was great to be back. In May, you could still spot the snow on Mount Mansfield, near Stowe.
I'm sure by now the church in Stowe is framed by lush greenery...
You gotta try the homemade pie at the Halfway House diner in Shoreham… always outstanding!! And as you walk in the door, there's a "library" where you can take a book or leave some.
We were sad that Pie in the Sky no longer exists in Stowe, but the food at The Bench was awesome!
And we always have to stop at Magic Hat in South Burlington.
