There is magic in the light that surrounds Lake Champlain and Essex. Our friend Atea invited us to paint at her home and her gardens are tended with love.
There more than eight variety of peony ploom.
Each day commences with a delicious breakfast. Violetta is an excellent cook and today it is crepes.
