The Vermont family live in a beautiful and large house surrounded by acres of its own immaculately kept grounds and gardens.
The bees are always buzzing and the flowers are always smelling beautiful here. It is a veritable Garden of Eden.
There is also often the sound of cannons and explosions because the large gardens are where Commander Vermont carries out his (almost daily) military maneuvers with the soldiers who obey his every command — even if the orders seem bizarre.
Octavia Vermont likes to sit in the garden and read or play music and amid the minefields and mortar ranges can sometimes be heard Octavia’s virtuoso cello or piano music.
