"Inn"-troducing Mr. & Mrs. Barnett!

Saturday, April 28th, 2007

Congratulations to Judi Graham & William Barnett as they begin their new life together…

Judi and Bill weren’t intersted in a big wedding - instead they chose to join us here at the Darby Field Inn for an elopement. Fortunately there was a break in the rainy weather so Marc could perform their ceremony on the patio. After warming up in front of the fire in the living room, they joined us for dinner. They are a fun-loving couple, and a pleasure to have as guests. We wish them the best of luck, and look forward to seeing them again in the future!

In gardening news, our newest arrival is Pulmonaria, commonly known as lungwort. Like bloodroot, it is also an early spring bloomer, spreads fast, and disappears soon after the blossoms fade. This flower offers two colors, fuscia buds and beautiful blue blooms. It is another great addition to any garden. Bloodroot and lungwort both arrive shortly after jonquils, and last much longer, displaying the “carpet of flowers” effect. Faye has been very busy in the gardens; there are new shoots everywhere! Next week I’ll show you two comparison shots, taken two weeks apart, and introduce you to the next blooming beauty in our garden!
Marc and Maria Donaldson, our innkeepers, are celebrating their 28th year here at the Darby Field. Check out their “inn”-iversary special (http://www.darbyfield.com/packagesdetails.html?sku=2004120412) to find out what this means to you. Until next time, bid farewell to the April showers, and enjoy your own May flowers!

Spring…Finally?

Friday, April 20th, 2007

New Spring Arrivals!
After posting twice before that spring and mud season were here, then getting two more huge winter storms, I am approaching this blog with more delicacy. If we get even one more inch of snow before next winter, my friends and family may well pack up and head for Florida! These pictures show how the weather here in New Hampshire can change within one week, from a foot of snow to fresh spring bulbs!

Here at the Darby Field Inn we’re back in business on a reduced scale, doing some spring cleaning and renovations in preparation for the seasons ahead. We are welcoming guests on weekends only in April, and are offering some great deals on our Specials Page. Don’t forget Mother’s day is quickly approaching; we can help you show that special mom in your life how much she’s appreciated by booking a reservation for her (and a guest) to enjoy some TLC here at the Inn.

Another thing to keep in mind is once the ground dries up, spring is the ideal time for hiking, insect and humidity free! In addition to our own nature paths, there are several excellent trails located minutes from here off the Kancamaugus Highway. It may be too cold to swim, still, but the local wildlife is currently out of hibernation and prime for picture taking and viewing from a distance. There is also the Home, Garden & Flower Show going on in the middle of May at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds, only twenty minutes from here. Vendors show you what’s new for home and gardens this season, and it’s a great place to pick up some different plants for your yard. There are also some great food vendors, and packaged gourmet foods for sale.

Faye will begin working her magic in our (her) award winning gardens this week. Here’s a picture of the starting point, for reference later in the season. You’ll be amazed at how fantastic they look, even a month from now…as I mentioned in an earlier post, I will be passing along some tips from the expert, so stay tuned! Until next time, enjoy the sunshine today, because who knows what tomorrow may bring!
