Ketchup & Mustard rose Ian grew from a twig. Maybe there's something to this Master Gardener thing after all.

1 of the perqs of being an innkeeper: the winemaker personally delivers an unreleased barrel sample with custom label.

And here's why I call him my nephew-twin. Well, at least he's a twin of my self at that age. You'll have to trust me.

My nephew-twin is graduating from high school. I'm so old.

I figure this will serve as a hint to Ian (& the hives) to hurry up with the honey already. #thriftstorefinds

The apparent inspiration for the drawing I found earlier tucked into the room journal.

The Muse always strikes at the Strawberry Creek Inn (found tucked in a room journal).

Also found this 1966 story abt the Bunkhouse (formerly Singingwood motel, then Atipahato Lodge) in the library newspaper archive.

Found an oil painting of Lake Fulmor at the thrift store today. $10. I think it wants to be in the Autumn Room.
