The farms and gardens of Vermont throughout bursting with bounty. Toil and love are now rewarded with an abundant harvest. I painted this last week sitting by the Swiss Chard with a warm morning sun on my back. White butterflies danced through the air at the Old Gates Farm. And so did my brush.
Melrose is noted for its many pecan groves and there are blueberry farms (and even a butterfly farm) in Earleton, a beautiful area on the west side of Lake Santa Fe. Description from gainesvilleconnect.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
Rooterville Animal Sanctuary - Melrose. Our 30 acre sanctuary has pot-bellied pigs, farm pigs, cows, horses, chickens, turkeys, goats, and more. Take a look at our beehives and beautiful butterfly garden. Sanctuary tours are available anytime during the day throughout the week and on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Tour our barns for the opportunity of a lifetime to meet the animals! Our animals are friendly and approachable. Pigs love to have their bellies rubbed!
