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



Congratulations to The Barnetts as they begin their new life together...


Judi and Bill weren't interested 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 lung wort. Like blood root, 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. Blood root and lung wort 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!
