Spring is Glorious in the Berkshires
Spring is in full bloom in the Berkshires! What a colorful and aromatic treat for the senses! The tulips, daffs, forsynthia, azaleas and magnolias are putting on a spectacular show!
The warm weather bounty has caused early blossoms on the apple trees at Hilltop Orchards. Keep your fingers crossed for continued warm weather and no frost!
We are in the process of planning our organic herb and vegetable garden at Garden Gables. We’ll be cultivating the soil soon and planting our first crop.
We’ll be picking fresh edible flowers and herbs/vegetables for your breakfast and dinners.
All the area venues and restaurants are holding open houses and receptions. We’ll attend as many as we can so we can keep you better informed on all the Berkshire County offerings this season.
We’ll also look forward to telling you all about the lecture and artist reception series we began this winter. Tanglewood expert Andrew Pincus was our first lecturer, and J.D. Logan, our first artist. Just last week we had a fabulous weekend featuring a Cooking Demo followed by a four-course Dinner by Chef Michael Garnero, esteemed instructor from the Culinary Institute of America.
You’ll also find some pleasant surprises at the Inn on your return, so
