There was no way I was doing anything on the sewing machine over the last couple of days. We had the most perfect weekend of the summer yet here in Vermont. Saturday I spent the day with friends and their daughter Xandra, at Leddy Park in Burlington. Then, friends and I went to see Transformers at the movies.
Can I just state for the record- possibly the coolest movie I’ve ever seen in my life?
Seriously. Beat out the original Matrix.
Optimus Prime kicked ass. And Megatron scared the crap out of me.
I’m such a geek.
Sunday we drove to Bristol and spent the late morning at Rocky Dale Nursery checking out their perennials. Into town for lunch, (here’s a shot of Main Street)
and back to the nursery to eat gelato on a bench surrounded by flowers and bumblebees. We bought two daylilies, Capacian fiesta and Ed Murray. No pictures yet, but I’ll take some tomorrow.
This is one of our Echinacea, a strain called Summer Sky.
And, finally, local corn with diner on Sunday night, and the opportunity to find out who won The Next FoodNetwork Star.
Perfect end to a perfect weekend.
