Week of Meetings and the promise of Spring

Our little Faerie Garden
Although we still have about a foot and 1/2 of snow on the ground, the promise of spring is everywhere here at the Applesauce Inn B&B!  Spring cleaning, fresh paint and new linens are all hints to the coming of the new season!  The sun light lingers a bit more in the evening and every day new birds are spotted at our numerous bird feeders out back.  Soon the many daffodils, tulips, lilies and anemones I planted last fall will be gracing us with their beautiful little faces and the blue birds will be singing again! 

I spent this week in various meetings for several of our local community organizations -Bellaire Chamber, Parkside Arts Council and Destination Bellaire, but the one I am most excited about is our new Community Garden planned for the town of Mancelona!  Institute for Sustainable Living, Art, Natural Design is one of our local organizations that features workshops on gardening, beekeeping and local food.  They, like me, are supporters of the local food movement that is very important to our local economy (as well as for our health and general well-being)....and have worked with several towns to create both community and school gardens.  I am thrilled to be a part of this group as a mentor gardener, and I will also have my own small plot to garden...along with my own garden for our guests here at the B&B. 

So much is happening here in our little community~hope you will come up North soon and check it out! 

Happy Planting!
