We have just had our first major snow storm in Manchester, VT. The Inn at Ormsby Hill has been transformed into a winter paradise. The view from my kitchen desk is truly remarkable. That being said, I can already envision a different scene out this window: green leaves on the crab apple, a soft breeze blowing through the screen, multi-hued green on the Taconic mountains…in other words – SPRING! The days are already getting minutely longer; the darkest days are behind us. I am celebrating the new year with beautiful cymbidium orchids purchased at Equinox Valley Nursery, the place I sneak off to when I need to feed my soul.
So, when you visit us here, you can enjoy the actual climate outside, or you can join me inside for a hint of warmer days to come.
