Spring is almost over and summer is just around the corner. Summer vegetables are the best. To name a few: new potatoes, green beans, beets, collard greens, fiddle heads (my favorite) beets, cucumbers, eggplant, Vidalia onions, peppers (green, yellow and red), squash, tomatoes, lettuce, these are just a few healthy vegetables to start your summer feast. Watermelon for dessert is the best. Put on your grilling hat and grilled hamburger, hot dogs, fresh caught fish and your meal is complete, filling, healthy and delicious.
Celebrating Mother’s Day in Ohio. Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast in Delroy (Atwood Lake) is special. They offer a two night Special. It includes a visit to the National First Ladies Museum and Library. This event is fascinating and showcases the Victorian home of President and Mrs. McKinley. After the tour there will be a First Ladies Tea. This will be a day to remember. Another great B&B for Mother’s Day is take your mother or wife to Holladay House Bed and Breakfast in Orange, Virginia. They are the best to relax and shower them with attention. A one hour massage is included. Homemade dark chocolate cake and extended stay with discount. Holladay House is in beautiful Virginia wine country and is a historic inn. Fireplaces, double whirlpool Jacuzzi suites, private patios and so much more.
Are your perennial plants waking up this spring. Are they showing off their beautiful colors and leaves. I know they died last fall but they should be showing off their spring visual pleasures now. Asters in double blue, Bleeding Hearts, Bishop Weed, Bell Flower White, Arctic Queen, Daylily, Foxglove are so beautiful and come in many different sizes and looks. Rose bushes one of the most popular plant come in many sizes, colors and are a hardy winter plant. The colors are just awesome. Fruit trees as well flower are beautiful. Apples, Cherries, beautiful large Fig Tree leaves keep you in suspense… when are they going to produce their wonderful fruit. Evergreens withstand the cold weather and look amazing during the spring and summer.
