Regina, John, Dinah, Brenda & Max

It was so good to meet Brenda and see Max happy.
He says his time in Florida Marine Mechanic school
was a success because he found her.

Spring in Vermont

Lodge Cattle

Dinah was in her element checking out the plants, the compost, and the seedlings.
Many of their plants are started from seed in the greenhouse.
The gardeners use newspaper planting cups that will disintegrate once planted.
Inside, we encountered...

flower arrangements destined for the wedding.
This one we later found in the ladies restroom.

from being a college professor in Sacremento

The new wing where we stayed.

A beautiful flower garden

But it turned out to be...

The family grave yard.

Each grave is planted with flowers.

Georg and Maria are buried in the middle.
With their children's plots spread out on each side.
