I love the lush countryside.

These photos are breathtaking. I've always wanted to visit New England states. Vermont is a beautiful place. I love the covered bridges.
Thank you for sharing your trip. That is what I love about this meme. We get to go places we might not ever visit just by clicking on a name.

Oh, I love the covered bridges! Your pictures are so perfect that just as I got to your lovely collage I was thinking "these photos look just like postcards I've seen in Vermont!"

Every time we go visit my MIL in Schenectady we drive to Manchester for lunch at The Equinox and dessert at Mother Merricks. It's a lovely day - especially if it's in the fall! Love the photo of your grandma!

If I had the money to travel, I would want to see so many places in the U.S. before going overseas. And...Vermont is a state I would dearly love to see.
Thanks for all the wonderful photos and now, after seeing the covered bridges...I have to watch Bridges of Madison County tonight..a favorite of mine.
Loved the photo of your gran....

Beautiful! I love Vermont. I know the winters are full of snow, but it is a beautiful place. Ever since the movie White Christmas, I have wanted to live there.

So much breath taking beauty! You are so artistic with your photos. I love all of the unique and pretty ways you posted these photographs. And what gorgeous scenery to photograph! Just what I imagine Vermont to look like! I'm going back for a second look. laurie

Of course I saw the movie 'The sound of music' and afterwards I read the book. I remember that the family Von Trapp arrived in Vermont and finally felt like coming home, as it was the first time that they discovered a landscape that reminded them of Austria, that they were forced to leave. Your post triggered me. Yes Vermont is beautiful and your photos remind me too on Austria. I do hope your mother is well, please give her my regards the next time you speak to her. I think she is a lucky lady. Having you as her daughter and living in this lovely Vermont.
Have a nice day!

These photos are spectacular!!! I am humming the song in my head now...."pennies in a stream"...
G and I have been seriously thinking of taking a trip to New England as both of us have never been to Vermont, Maine etc. These images just make it more enticing!
Sorry I haven't commented in a while, absolutely nothing personal whatsoever!
I hope all is well!
Love and hugs,

Crystal said...

What a beautiful place!!!! I've wanted to go to Vermont for years but I want to go in the fall! I love how your pictures are so BIG!!! Can't seem to get that part of my blog figured out!

Charli and me said...
