Into Spring

Into Spring
Well March is here and it’s still cold but we know spring is coming! We are still having our Wine and hors d'oeuvre’s on Saturdays from 4-6pm. We love interacting with our guests for this casual get together. I am trying some new and fun hors d’oeuvres. St. Patrick’s Day is coming and for that weekend we will have a special afternoon buffet featuring Mike’s homemade corned beef for Reuben Sliders on my homemade rolls and Irish based sides. We have the fresh brisket curing in the fridge and I have to turn it every day
Next week we are renovating the Patty’s Garden bathroom to put in a 2 person shower to replace the claw foot tub, the shower will have an easy access step in. I am also replacing the carpet in that room with wood flooring.
We are looking forward to the awakening of our flowers when the crocuses and daffodils poke they’re heads up. That is always the first signal that spring is finally here.

The birds are here

The Birds are here
We just got our new baby birds. We now are adding to the flock 12 chickens, 3 more geese, and 6 guinee hens. All are super cute. We had a great Memorial Day weekend. It was a great start to the summer season. I have new recipes to try for breakfast that I am anxious to try. I did pears poached with honey and cranberries. This went over really well.
I started on my container gardens this week. I love planning them to see what does really well in all our areas . I look forward to seeing all of you

Mother's Day Special

Hi Everyone, Signs that spring is finally here, the daffodils are blooming, maple sugaring is over, and Andrew is cleaning out the flower beds and the yard.  I am starting to plan our container flower pots. I am also going to offer a Mother’s Day special. Buy a gift certificate from Seymour House for your special Mom and when she uses it we will provide a bouquet of flowers in her room at no extra cost to brighten her days with us. We are looking forward to our  8th season here, can’t for it to begin.  Patty

Spring is on the way

We’ve started to tap our Maple trees, so I know spring is on the way. The daffodils are pushing up through the snow. Thank goodness they are so hardy. I’m starting to think about what flowers I will add to our flower gardens. Mike and I are planning on expanding our herb garden this year. We are almost ready for St. Patrick’s Day. Mike has a beautiful beef brisket that we are corning. We use Julia Child’s recipe and it always turns out great. I am ready for an Irish Boiled dinner for Sunday. Hope all of you have a fun and tasty St. Pats day.

Winter at Semour House

Hi Everyone

We had a fun Valintines weekend. We indulged in truffles in every room. Some of our guests enjoyed in cross country skiingon our trails through the woods.  They were excited to see many birds and deer. Other of our guests spent time sitting by the fireplace reading or watching movies. The snow let up on Sunday so everyone had a safe journey home.  Its snowing again today.  We are supposed to get another 3-5 inches. Inside the Inn my kitchen is keeping me warm. I'm making jams and breads. I'm perfecting a new techniqe for making artesional breads.  I also developed a new jam, cherry almaretto preserves. It went over big with guests this weekend so its a keeper recipe. This weekend to come we will be tapping our maple trees, weather permitting.  Talk to you next week. Patty

Valentines and Maple Sugaring

Seymour House blog 2013

Well it’s been a crazy week. freezing cold then rain and thunderstorms last night.  That’s ok because we have a return of winter by the end of the week. I really prefer snow to mud.   This weekend is South Havens Icebreaker and it looks like the weather will cooperate.  With the beginning of February we not only look forward to Valentines but also start to prepare for tapping the maple trees. This usually occurs at the end of February and beginning of March. We look for days that are 40 degrees and nights that go down to the 20’s. Come join us to see Mike tap the trees and collect the sap. My grandchildren look forward to it every year. Don’t forget  to bring your loved one for Valentines.  I have a great menu for the afternoon get together.  I start decorating the Inn this week.  Talk to all next week.  Patty at Seymour House
