I thought Spring had finally arrived!

We thought Spring had arrived until Friday morning to our surprise, the rain that was in the forecast turned into snow. Yes I said snow! We hadn't had snow on the ground up here since the first part of March and April has brought us a little surprise.

Snow Friday and Saturday, and I imagine Sunday will also drop a few snow flakes. Just getting ready to do a little early clean up this weekend by raking and trimming up the bushes. So that project will have to be put off for a little while.

Nothing seems to surprise me in the White Mountain Region. When you think it's over, it comes back to remind you who's boss. I give!

Mondays, they just remind me that I'm facing another 4 days without guests this time of year. Yes, only on the weekends does this house come alive.

We're working on our recipes for the Inn to Inn Herb Tour the association is sponsoring the weekend og June 5th and 6th. And another event this year will be the Inn to Inn Poker run for charity, benefitting the Make a Wish Foundation. We're holding the event for nine days through Bike Weekn in New Hampshire. It's our first charity event and we're really excited to be working with such a special foundation.

Spring clean up will start next week and the winter, though short has left a mess behind. It's a raking we will go ! Trim the hedges, open the pool for the season and we'll be ready for summer before we know it.

I almost miss the early mornings on the front porch watching the snow fall, with a hot cup of chocolate in hand.
Romance in the magic of the mountains.
