If the black fly is the state bug of Vermont and granite the state crop, the state snapshot has to be the green weedy field dotted with brown and black-and-white dairy cows set against purplish mountain backdrop.  This is a snapshot (minus the cows which weren’t there the last time I drove by) I see every spring morning while dropping the boys at school on one of the many days we miss the bus.

I always have the same thought as I go by my favourite snapshot, set next to the Battenkill River across from our rec park:  that would make a great painting.

And then it’s gone and the road before me fills up with my to-do list for the day.
