Weekend in Vermont

We spent last weekend in Vermont to attend and celebrate Tony's cousin Caitlyn's graduation from University of Vermont. His family rented a log home in Shelburne which about 9 of us stayed in. The drive out was great as we spent a lot of time going through the white mountains. Unfortunatly, I didn't get any great photos. We spent a day walking around in Burlington, which is a cool city. We also toured Magic Hat brewing company, which was having a party when we went. There were live bands, entertainers, free food, and of course beer. Tony happily went home with a couple of growlers of beer.

Yard work

Busy weekend between working in the yard and working on final papers for my class that ends tomorrow. I finally started tearing apart the front flower garden, which I have never been too fond of. It was too big and too flat. I decided to build a little stone wall so that I could make one section higher than the other. I also shrunk it to half of its size. Still need to plant grass seed around it, and work on smoothing out the lower part of the garden. Then it is time to fill it in with more plants.



I am happy with it, it is certainly better than what was there before. I am sure it will look much better once it is filled with flowers too.
