The Gardens at Montgomery’s Inn

….while waiting for the bread to bake I took a stroll around the inn to check out the gardens

On the east side of the inn the tulips are in full bloom.IMG-2474

The front of the Inn is green and lush. The irises are already withering but the peonies are just about ready to bloom and the lilac blossoms are fully open.IMG-2475

The west side is very shady. The phlox spread out a beautiful blanket of purple flowers and some of the bakers changed hats and became gardeners while waiting for the bread to come out of the oven.

A Photo a Week Challenge – Fire

….thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting the Photo a Week Challenge

Every week I work with fire as we bake our bread for the inn and the Farmers’ Market in an outdoor bake oven. There’s also an old fireplace in the tearoom that we light when the weather is particularly cold. I couldn’t resist including the fire from my daughter’s birthday cake. I love how it illuminates our granddaughter’s face.IMG-4062
