Spring...Finally?


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!
