Our provider is looking into a problem we had with reservations being logged onto the calendar -- which prevents double bookings. Until that's resolved we have deleted the links for booking reservations. If you want to stay, please write D. <firstname.lastname@example.org> and give him the information about dates. He'll give you rates and, if you want to stay, you can pay through PayPal and we'll block the dates.
Meanwhile, here in Carbondale it's a long, slow, beautiful spring. On February 18 our first crocuses announced spring's arrival.
The next week our early daffodils began to open their buds.
Soon the side yard under the old oak tree clumps of miniature daffodils brightened up the blanket of winter leaves and our stillata magnolia put forth one brave bloom. It was fortunate -- despite a few sub-freezing nights, the tree is protected and it's now in full bloom.
By March 6 the borders were a riot of yellow, sometimes bowed down by rain, sometimes swaying in the wind. And, since then, it's been a succession of daffodils, with the wild flower woods garden to soon produce its beauty.
Even as later blooming daffodils, hyacinths, and other flowers open, this chilly spring has kept the others fresh. Soon the wild flowers will bloom -- as beautiful and bountiful as the famed Smoky Mountains.
