Happy Sunday everyone. Its a sunny but very crisp morning here in New Hampshire.Feels like fall and that is wonderful after all the summer heat. Half way through my 4 day weekend! I love knowing I have 2 days left to my weekend. Especially since my first days were busy and I was out and about and now I have 2 days to putter around at home. And first plans today are to go play with some paints and markers. :)
I think this lady is beautiful. Friday my daughter and I were both off from work and we decided to take a road trip we'd been talking about all summer. We went to Vermont to visit the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller mansion and then the Billings Farm Museum which is right across the street.
The farm museum is actually a working cheese farm, and it was the farm originally attached to the house. The house is now part of the US's National Park Service and the farm is run as a museum.
Although a big house, it was actually quite a lovely place. Beautiful but not ostentatious. What I did not know before we went that the original house was in the family of George Perkins Marsh who is one of the founding father's of American ecology.
The garden wasn't huge but I thought it was beautiful. I think I now want a little formal garden at my house.
Water in the garden fountain.
This house had a huge Victorian porch and these wonderful vines growing along the edges.
And look at the view.
But I must say the cows were my favorite.
Almost time for afternoon milking. They told us these Guernsey cows give about 6 gallons of milk a day.
And they had a few sheep too.
I could show you a lot more photos but I'll save that for another day. Time for me to get off the couch and go be a little productive. :)
Hope its a great rest to your weekend.
