I think Vermont is beautiful this time of year.
It’s even prettier when the wildflowers come out in awhile. Probably in a month or so. I love it when the farmers markets open.
We don’t live that far from the Atlantic coast, so it makes a nice day trip in the summer. I love the salt air and sandy beaches.
The above cottage is in Madaket on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. That place is really nice for a little vacation. Way back you could rent a cottage for around $1,000.00 a week which we didn’t do because we were rent free for completely renovating the inside of a separate owners place. But now the above cottage is about $3,000.00 to $4,000.00 a week. Kind of steep and I guess some people actually don’t mind paying it. All kinds of people sail into that island sometimes as far away as England.
I will never forget the time that we got to spend on that island. It’s gorgeous.
I love a hammock, especially if it’s between 2 trees. Nice little breeze and totally peaceful.
Cottage gardens with an arch like the above photo is so easy to dream of. I don’t know how easy it is to grow it. I would just buy the plants that were already started. I think that maybe it would be possible to do. But it’s an inspiration to me. I think that those are old fashioned hollyhocks along the fence. I saw some Hollyhock plants like that all started and ready to plant at a local plant place near where I live. I have a lot to learn about gardening. If someone got it started, I might be able to keep the garden watered and put miracle grow on it for plant food. When I was younger and first married, my husband had a second job where he took care of gardens for some very nice people. They sometimes sent him home with beautiful plants that I got to plant. I particularly remember colorful gladiolas and dahlias.
I love little secret gardens and I like to see other peoples ideas. People are so creative.
