As always, I like to remind innkeepers to get those photos in and out of seasons to use on your facebook page, blog, directory listings, etc. If you take them NOW you will have them to promote for next year, or when someone wants to do a press release and voila you have some photos!
Keep your camera handy, and ready to go!
Here is what happened this morning. It is 70 degrees at 9am and the guests from Maine were loving it. (The pollen is INDEED high today, as well)
FB/Twitter/G+/Pinterest Post today:
"With a "wintery mix" back home in Maine, guests sat near the ponds with their coffee this 68 degree morning! Here are our guests under our Weeping Elm at 8am today. What a day in Blue Ridge Country Virginia!"

Meanwhile last year Spring came a month early. This year, the trees to the left are bare, and they are dogwoods and usually have already begun blooming. Our Asian Maggie near the porch is done by end of March and just now rampin' up!

Yeah, tell me about spring... I have a couple of crocuses. And the Siberian Squill is starting to make an appearance.

Here it looks like JB's. Forsythia at its max, saucer magnolias ("tulip trees"), ornamental cherries going above and beyond the call of duty, Bradford Pears doing their usual thing (I'm getting tired of them), still have jonquils and grape hyacinths going strong. Best spring in at least 12 months!

I really miss forsythia...always reminds me of the beginning of Spring! They don't do well this far South. Bulbs don't seem to do well in our area either, maybe the soil is too sandy. I do have a couple of lonely iris. :)

That is the sound of Spring!
I often say Spring is just as vibrant as Fall, perhaps it is the stark contrast from the bare brown sticks that miraculously turn into leafy blooms? It roars into this part of the country like a steam train!
See ALL OF MY PHOTOS from today here: http://blog.claibornehouse.net/2013/04/boing-boing-boing.html
(I took these as we had an innterested party email about this B&B being for sale) so I figured I would go and get these today!)
