A quick photo stroll around the inn grounds! These were taken just about a month ago and already there are so many more flowers all around. These are actually peonies from our assistant innkeepers garden. They are tree peonies that bloom earlier than our regular peonies and she always brings in her "excess" to brighten the main inn common rooms. Bree, our ridgeback, is trying to look noble and worried at the same time. She hates to walk on the wet grass, but she loves going on walks.
This is the herb garden with the marigolds just after planting. Now they have completely filled in the bed and you can't even see the dirt anymore.
Here is Bree, the dog who hates to walk in wet grass, showing us that she will make an exception for wading into the fresh puddles of rain water for a nice cooling drink.
The chives are going wild, which is great because I use them in my goat cheese and chives scrambled egg special. Yum.
This year we had robin build a nest right above the bend in the rainspout. A much smarter location than their usual spot above a doorway!
