Yesterday we had our first snow fall. Weather up to then had been glorious. Enjoy the photos of the mandevilla vine, which had remained abnormally gorgeous through October 27th:
Manchester Center, Vermont, August 30, 2011
The Inn at Ormsby Hill
Contrary to what you may see or hear on the news, Manchester is doing just fine after Hurricane Irene paid us a little visit on Sunday. All the shops are open, restaurants are still serving their wonderful food – and we are functioning just perfectly. These photos were taken just before sunset this evening.
Come check us out for yourselves!!!!!!!!!!
We have sad news to bring you. Quincy, Chris’s fabulous baby boy and “only child”, passed away on Monday, July 11th, at the young age of 6. We will never know the exact cause, but due to the rapidity of his decline, it was highly likely a rapidly growing tumor on his spinal cord in the neck region, based upon veterinary testing.
He was a total joy to us and to all our guests. His claim to fame was that he truly smiled as he greeted each guest (just wish we had had the opportunity to get a photo – but he just moved too quickly!), and brought out THE toy of the day, and, most importantly, the chance to be patted. Thank you for being a part of his happiness. He truly will be missed.
Enjoy the photos of him!!
The last couple of weeks has seen the lawn greening up, plants all coming to life, and new birds arriving. Enjoy the photos -
This red-bellied woodpecker decided to make our feeders his home for a day – and what a day it was. Wish I could show ALL the photos!!!!
Cherry Tree in Full Bloom – with the most flowers we’ve every seen!!
The photographers at Vermont Country Store were at the Inn at Ormsby Hill once again shooting items for their holiday catalogue. Thought you’d like to see what they did:
We admit that we are having much fun shooting for Christmas in April!!!!!!!
About 4 weeks ago, a big wind storm snapped our sign post in half and brought our sign to the ground. Since that time, we have been without a sign. Amazingly, all our guests arrived without incident!!!!!!!
Below are the photos taken at our inn in Manchester, Vermont, supplied to us by VCS. The final cut has yet to be made – but you can see the “end result”.
How fortunate for us that the Vermont Country Store has chosen The Inn at Ormsby Hill as a site for taking photos of items to appear in their catalogs. Some are new items, some are for Christmas, and one will be for a cover shot. I took photos of the work in progress.
