Spring Forward….

March 15th, 2018 by Cheryl Farruggia

…We changed our clocks and that means Spring is approaching.

No one enjoys the week of daylight savings, we all feel we have been robbed of that extra hour for at least a week or so.  But once we adjust we remember that changing the clocks in March means one thing, SPRING!!  It is that time of year when all the fragrant smells of tulips, lilacs, and daffodils fill the air.  The trees begin to show the sprouting of new leaves, the grass grows greener, and the day light stays longer.

I love to wake up in the morning as I get ready to prepare breakfast for our guests and look on our grounds for what new life has sprouted since the day before.  Our Koi pond comes to life more and more each day as the plants and lily pads welcome our fish.  The cottage begins to be surrounded by the gorgeous gardens we have planted.  And that smell that makes you feel like each day is perfumed with joy and happiness.

Each season has its special memories, it’s own promise of special times.  The spring warmth and rebirth is so refreshing that it puts a smile on my face.  As we change from season to season I enjoy taking a moment to appreciate the beauty that it brings and the gratefulness that we live in such a magnificent place to see the most amazing parts of all 4 seasons.

We hope you have an opportunity to come visit us this spring and experience the wonderful elegance that Galena has as the town comes to life with all the new baby animals and the blossoming of the trees and flowers.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

Cheryl and Carmine
