Tunbridge World's Fair


 The Tunbridge World's Fair~Tunbridge, Vermont

Thursday marks the opening day of the Tunbridge World's Fair. Farmer's from across the state come to showcase their animals, hay, and vegetables. Children and adults come with arms full of entries for the fair. Today, I took the mural that the children felted at our summer farm camp this summer as an entry in the juvenile group project category. We titled the mural: "Vermont I Spy". Hidden within, one can find all the many things that makes Vermont so special.

Won't you join me in a game of I Spy?
