September Wedding at The Round Barn

Katherine and Evan were married at The Inn at the Round Barn Farm on Saturday.  It was a lovely autumn day in Vermont for their destination wedding with the fall foliage just starting to show its peak colors.

Red rose bouquets for September Wedding

Lately I have noticed that brides either love roses for their classic, gardeny look or want to try to avoid them completely.  I think the rose has developed a bum rap because they have been poorly represented in many flower shops who try to sell a “cheap dozen” for $19.95 with short stems and small buds as well as grocery stores who have no clue how to handle

After months of summer weddings I find myself re-energized by fall weather and fall wedding flowers!  Jess and Emmet were married last Saturday at Grand Isle Lake House on a beautiful almost-fall day.  After a string of rainy days a perfect, sunny wedding day greeted us and then was followed by another string of rainy days!  This

Cucumbers in Alison’s Garden

I love the taste of a freshly grown cucumber from my garden.  Unlike store-bought cukes that have a thick waxy coating and taste pretty much like nothing, a garden-grown cucumber is refreshing, crisp and surprisingly wax-less!  Toss them in a salad and they are delicious, put them on top of a homemade falafel and they
