The "B & B" is Ready For Guests (Edited)

Guests (Leon's family - Mom dod not come but an additional grandnephew did for a total of 2 adults and 4 kids) arrived Monday and all was ready, inside and out.  We saw to every detail, just like those fancy B&B's.  Here are some pics of the yard and gardens:
The Outdoor Shower - We Love It!
Most Guests Are Too Shy To Use It However
Palmetto, Fuchsia, Papyrus, Pine Bonsai, Red Maple
The Cactus/Rock Garden
A Real Pain to Weed
After Like Six Years, Finally Blossoming
Don't Cut Back the Dead Wood
Vegetable Garden
Doing Just OK This Year
Stella D'Oro
Leon Weeded for Days
His New Rain Gauge and Thermometer
Last Sunday we took a break and went to the Rock River Vermont (where we met 23 years ago in August).  They have a new, what I would call a "low environmental impact information kiosk" with the info etched in clear plexiglass or something.

Yes, you are ready!
I'm sorry but I didn't even know that you owned a Bed and Breakfast. That is Fred's dream. Have fun! m.

I was being facetious - we don't own a B&B - we just have Leon's brother, sisteinlaw and 4 of their grandchildren for a visit. I couldn't do this on a regular basis or I'd really go bonkers.

Your hard work is showing and the place looks great. Will you use the outdoor shower in winter for a bracing start to your day? :)

Russ Manley said...

You did a great prep job, gardens and flowers look great. Hope you all have a fun time with the visit.

PS - that new sign in the woods: what the hell good is it if nobody can read it?

Cubby said...

Everything looks terrific! I'll be calling later for a reservation :-)

Craig, Unfortunately or fortunately, the outdoor shower gets dismantled every autumn like every other summer accoutrement in this "New" England climate.

The family visitors are packing the van as I write this and we are ready for some peace and relaxation.

When they arrived Monday evening I had a big pot of spaghetti sauce with meatballs and sausage waiting. On tuesday morning, Leon accompanied them to Misquamicut Beach where the kids had a great time and they all ate seafood dinners at a restaurant on the beach.

Sisterinlaw and the kids went to an amusement park on Wednesday after a breakfast of a dozen scrambled eggs, toast and cereal. Leon and his brother visited a friend with auto parts. Meanwhile I prepared for the evening cookout (burgers, dogs, barbecue pork, potato salad, fresh green bean salad, green salad, watermelon, strawberries, blueberries and ice cream) for dinner.

Well, that's all for now, I've got to go out and say our good-byes.

I guess I need to be a better "Follower" and pay attention. Now I feel like a dope! And here, I was so excited for you. Maybe after this experience, you should open one up. You know, for adults only. Having a B&B with kids in it is kind of nuts.
