Yes, we are open! With all this rain, the forest is green and summer flowers are blooming. Our tomatoes, 3 sisters garden, and pollination garden are doing well. Lots of new mugs, now, with a good selection of the hops beer mugs and small tumblers with impressions of spring flowers. Patrick is at the Southern Highlands Guild show in Asheville, NC, this weekend, but we still have a selection of his kaleidoscopes and pendants in the gallery. Michelle’s lovely watercolors and oil paintings are waiting to find new homes, so come and see what we have.
Walk the trails, bring the kids. I’ve been doing physical therapy for improving balance, and I find that the trails are the perfect way to practice. The best exercise must be a lovely walk on our forest trails. And, you can learn about the forest, the ecology, and even the history of our mountainside along the way.
