Yesterday we awoke to find that it was snowing and everything was covered in a 3 inch thick pristine blanket of white! March is certainly roaring in like a lion here in the Finger Lakes! It is evident that our long, cold winter is not behind us quite yet and although my heart longs for spring so we can enjoy the gardens and ponds in the back yard and open the windows and french doors, filling the house with fresh air, there is still time to appreciate the beauty of this season and the pleasures of being curled up on the sofa in front of a fireplace, sipping hot chocolate and nibbling on some of Sally's chocolate chip cookies while either reading a good book or snuggling up to a sweetheart.
We also began undecorating from Valentines yesterday which leaves the inn looking rather bare but it won't be long and we will be filling vases with beautiful fresh flowers from the gardens and decorating the rooms with natures most beautiful natural ornaments. I know that spring is on the way when I see the snowdrops poking up through the ground near the fountain on the side of the house. I look for them every year in anticipation of all that comes after their arrival.
One year we had a family of robbins build a nest in the Elderberry tree right next to the covered porch in English Suite. It was fascinating for our guests and for us to watch them! I photographed the parents feeding their babies from the bathroom window once they hatched. Soon after that they were gone. That was 3 or 4 years ago and each year I hope to see the robbins again in our Elderberry tree but so far, they have not returned. Perhaps there was not quite enough "privacy" for them and they moved on to more intimate surroundings? :)
Stay warm and enjoy the beauty and blessings of this season until spring arrives!
