Answer to Monday's Riddle: Mystery and Magic in CT!

Excellent guessing, Riddlers! This week we're whisking you away to the front gates of a crumbling, old Victorian known as the Begonia House. It's located in a small fictional town in Connecticut, and dripping with mystery. So hold onto your hats, and fear not the unexpected! ; ) ~ F

At a southern point is this northern place. Hills and valleys mark its face. There are four distinct seasons the weather does bring. It may be harsh during winter, but it's lovely in spring. Old and known as this part may be, there's a magic held deep in the root of the tree. Roads snake through past rivers unwinding, leading you on with a spell that's binding. Mesmerizing as the country can be, the city is also something to see. There's lots of culture and art abounds, music and theatre chime in with their sounds. In the nooks and crannies you're sure to find treasure, and it's bound to have a mysterious measure. Perhaps it's a house that enchants your sight; a crumbling Victorian will do for a fright. There's lots to see, though it's thought of as mild- but not in the hands of an imaginative child. Once a sign told of its disguises,"Welcome to Connecticut, we're full of surprises."

Where am I referring to? Answer: Connecticut

The clue was a store in Sherman, CT called Happy Rainbows. It's run by a lovely lady named Barry, and probably the best shopping experience you can imagine. Definitely a Connecticut treasure, hidden in the nooks and crannies of New England. :)

  1. I'm terrible with geography, and riddles. I didn't stand a chance.

  2. I suspect this one was always going to be a fail for me. Never mind. Better luck next week.

  3. Oh, I was offline there for a while and missed the riddle...

  4. It's a perfect spot and a perfect answer to that riddle.

  5. I never would have gotten it. I've been to a small town in NW Connecticut, many years ago. Went in the winter, first time I ever saw snow. Beautiful, but I was very cold.

  6. Got it fully after I saw the clue

  7. I guessed wrong - only off by three states.

  8. I still have the white crystal and the lovely rhyme book from Happy Rainbows. Barry's shop is such a treasure. :)

  9. Makes sense! I haven't been to Connecticut, but this looks like quite a wonderful little shop!

  10. I knew it was going to be a state! I'm assuming you girls live in Connecticut - i'd love to know more about your state.
