Cheers to Summer

“To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie –
True Poems flee.”
Emily Dickinson

It sure is hard to say good bye to summer. Business wise, it was one of our best. We truly enjoy our guests, and even though it is our busiest time of the year, we do manage to pack in lots of Berkshire Activities. Our favorite hobby is patio life. A special way to end the day! Candles lit, table set, wine poured, perhaps an evening chiminea to set the tone,  Ahhh…. connecting with my favororite people!

I think in order to be an innkeeping couple you have to share a love of of all things home.  Tending to our guests, home and garden gives us immense feelings of joy.

One of my morning rituals is to go out and count my morning glories. Hot tea in hand, I walk about the garden and explore what the morning garden offers. Morning glories like cool nights, and the September gardens benefit the most!

The morning glories are climbing the roof!

Herbs and vegetables straight from the garden.   Flavorful omlettes and frittata’s ~ what a great way to start the day!

Suddenly, we realize that the summer clock is ticking! It’s time for someone else to tend to the garden, and do the dishes!

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”

I don’t mind being a tourist at all, and a gawker. I just walk around.
