It’s Official…Spring is here!
Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn.We never thought it would be here so soon, but all the snow has melted and the flowers and seasonal birds are back! This is the perfect time to visit us for spring hiking and/or relaxing in the peace and quiet. Our dining room is now open Thursday through Sunday, which is another cause for celebration! Try an old-fashioned carriage ride before dinner for a romantic addition. Check out our specials for other great reasons to stay with us…we look forward to seeing you soon!

The First Sign of Spring…
Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn.

Our crocuses have been blooming over the past few days. While it seems odd to see them next to melting snow banks, they are surely the first sign that spring is finally here! We are returning from vacation this weekend, and are offering a great 2 for 1 special. If you can make it up to see us, don’t miss out on the savings…we look forward to hearing from you

This is Our Garden Growing!
Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn.For those of you who reminded me to put current photos of the garden on the website, thank you! I was falling behind in my duties…we’ve been staying pretty busy during the swing of summer! This seems to be a well chosen favorite spot for elopements and full weddings alike! We still offer some great last minute specials during this busy time…so make no excuses, give us call and come share in our beautiful property and the White Mountains!

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Sager

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Sager
Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn.

Meet Jennifer Brown and Eric Sager - they arrived as two people and left as a married couple. Jennifer thought she wanted to have her ceremony in our award-winning gardens, however, there were no pictures of them on our website. She was nervous until she saw that the flowers are truely beautiful! I chose this picture from their wedding because it’s a great shot of them, and also to show others that the garden is a wonderful backdrop! Jennifer, Eric and their friends were great and very patient with me, which I appreciate…we wish them all the best married life has to offer!

Peonies!

Peonies!

We have five different colors of peonies blooming here at the Inn right now. I have waited in anticipation for them to bloom for most of June, and now the heavy winds are threatening to shorten their season…we made several sweet-smelling bouquets for the Inn, and I took plenty of pictures to tide me over til next year!

My Favorite Kind of Spider…

This flower, the spider wort, is fast becoming a favorite of mine. I love its slender leaves and the clusters of vivid purple flowers that close up at night! A great addition to any perennial garden…

They Did It!

They Did It!
Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn.

Amee and Brian came to stay at the Darby Field Inn for their elopement. They exchanged their vows in front of innkeeper and justice of the peace, Marc Donaldson, and were very patient while I took tons of photos! They had a great time during their three days here, getting tandem massages before the ceremony, a champagne toast and dinner that evening. They were a very photogenic couple; you can view more of their pictures in the wedding section of our photo gallery on the main page of our website. Thank you for sharing, Amee and Brian, and we wish you two all the best!

Lovely Lilacs

Lovely Lilacs

Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn.
My featured flower is the Lilac. I have a tree outside my office and have had the pleasure of smelling them all day! Now I know Spring is in full swing…for those of you who share my passion for lilacs, enjoy them while you can, they’ll only be around for a couple of weeks. New shoots come up near the main tree, so dig them up and transplant them where you wish, like outside your bedroom window. They appreciate sweet soil, so hit them with the lime in the early spring and make sure to give them plenty of water.

The Last Weekend Before Bug Season Begins…

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

It’s Officially the Beginning of Flower Season!

Our garden has now reached the point it’s difficult to pick only one flower thats blooming…there are at least five or six to choose from. I’ve decided to feature one of the more obscure (at least to me…) this week. Euphorbia has the softest foliage, and spring green leaves crowned with small yellow clusters of flowers. Faye tells me it is a vigorous ground cover, doubling in size each year. This is a plant you can share with friends and family; its root ball can be divided easily and transplanted in your own garden or elsewhere. It enjoys the full sun and turns a delightful rusty orange in the fall. Although I said I would feature only one flower, I feel our flowering crabapple tree, pictured below, deserves some attention as well…it is absolutely gorgeous this year!

Just a little reminder: the Home and Garden Show is this weekend at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds. You’ll be able to find your own garden gems, talk with flower experts and get some delicious cook out recipes, all in one place! Our Last Minute Special features room rates that encourage you to get out and walk around the mountains, the golf course, or the garden show this weekend! So, if you’ve been thinking about visiting the White Mountains and the Darby Field Inn this spring, wait no longer…now is the perfect time to enjoy both!

Perfect Time to Experience Springtime in the Mountains!

Hard Work and Warm Weather Produce Results!


Spring is my favorite time of the year, here in New Hampshire. The sunshine is warm, gentle breezes blow, the bugs haven’t arrived yet, and the flowers start blooming! Before and after pictures are an amazing way to really remember how much things change…like our gardens. The time difference between thes two pictures is two weeks, and look at how green everything is! We have a couple new flowers peeking out every week, which is exciting for me; I love to take pictures of their bright blooms!
This weekend is the perfect time to witness these excellent conditions for yourself; we’ve posted a Last Minute Special that makes a visit here irresistible…so grab your hiking boots, mountain bikes, sunscreen and appetites and book a stay with us Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday - you won’t regret it! Don’t forget Mother’s Day is Sunday and we’ve got a great weekend package for her, too! Call (800)426-4147 and mention this blog for additional savings! Until next time, enjoy spring wherever you are…those pesky insects are on their way!
