Designing a lovely garden is an eminently visual process, akin to painting a picture with plants. We may even conjure up images of 'plein-air' artists like Claude Monet, working outdoors in diffuse natural light, carefully mixing their paints as they recreated their own mesmerizing gardens on canvas.
NEW HAVEN — “This is another Roadhouse Rehab original. We like this one, and we hope you do, too.”
ADDISON COUNTY / BRANDON — Whether you’re a local resident who doesn’t feel like traveling for the holiday or an out-of-towner interested in local festivities, Addison County and Brandon in the coming days will offer lots of Independence Day fun, ranging from live music to parades and athletic events.
And four public fireworks displays will be offered over the course of the next four days.
Too much is happening to fit everything into a single day, so events will range from Friday, July 1, through Monday, July 4.
WEST HAVEN — At the Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Saturday, Ferrisburgh veteran racer Jamie Aube took his first win of the season in the Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Model division in a two-segment, scored feature event.
Bow Thayer has gained a “reputation as a sublimely gifted artist.” His Americana music features his tales, truths and fantasies about the human condition. Thayer will perform live at Brandon Music next Saturday.
ADDSION COUNTY — After Gov. Peter Shumlin’s 2014 State of the State Address drew attention to the state’s heroin and opiate addiction crisis, local and statewide groups throughout Vermont have worked tirelessly to tackle the crisis.
MIDDLEBURY — Mike Leonard, for the past six years the Bates College baseball coach, has been hired to lead the Middlebury baseball program.
Leonard, a former University of Connecticut standout and Boston Red Sox farmhand, takes over as Panther coach from the recently retired Bob Smith and becomes just the fourth baseball coach at Middlebury since 1952.
Middlebury Director of Athletics Erin Quinn praised Leonard’s baseball and coaching background and his community orientation.
ADDISON COUNTY — As the Fourth of July festivities approach, local residents are making preparations. In addition to burger patties, cases of soda and beer, water balloons and lighter fluid, some shopping lists include all the makings for the colorful and loud displays that will light up backyards and evening skies.
Products with names like “Behemoth,” “Field of Dreams,” “Loud & Legal” and “Goliath” are already moving off the shelves.
