In Our Gardens
Most of us are familiar with the blooms of cherries and magnolias, but a walk through the gardens at this time of year leads to the discovery of lesser-known spring-blooming shrubs. Here, Wintergreen Barberry (Berberis julianae), with oh-so-fragrant yellow flowers covering it's prickly branches. Featured above, this shrub is found along the walkway to The Fearrington House Restaurant.

About once a year, on a random day, it happens...we get a quiet Saturday afternoon. Very strange! Well, a few weeks ago was the 2014 date for such a thing, and I got spend a really nice hour with the "Flower Shop Girls" (as we affectionately call them) looking at a large selection of Krystal Kast’s fabulous wedding photos. It was such fun!
While looking at Krystal’s work is always a pleasure, the most enjoyable part of the afternoon for me was listening to the girls as they looked... Full Post >
Fearrington House Restaurant
Today we are preserving lemons for the year. The process is simple, but the results are always astounding, especially when added to elevate a dish or garnish to give it a little more pep. We take the lemons and trim off both ends (this helps them to stand up and stack better for large numbers), then we take our knife three quarters of the way down from the top to open them up. We place them in a dish standing up and liberally add salt followed by a good salad oil to cover. They are then left... Full Post >
There is nothing more gratifying then having a successful dinner service, especially after facing multiple last minute "fires" that need to be put out right before, or even during service. Whether it is a product issue or a guest concern, they always seem to pop up right during crunch time. For example, a last minute vegan guest arrives and we then need to quickly create a three to four course specialty menu. Stressful at the time, but when the team rallies together and pulls it off, it is... Full Post >
In Our Gardens, In Our Spa
One of the sweetest smaller garden beds at Fearrington these days as each new day brings new flower and foliage is the one in front of the Spa entrance. What's behind Deb Henderson's complementary design inspiration? "The crape myrtles overhead are lavender so I use colors that complement them,like pinks, violet and blues. The trees make it very shady so I use foliage plants that add texture: hostas, ferns and hellebores. Bulbs of different varieties add color in the spring. In the summer... Full Post >

Not only am I lucky enough to work with the talented photographer Krystal Kast, I'm also fortunate enough to be able to call her my sister-in-law! She is an amazing talent capturing special moments at so many of Fearrington's weddings. She is easy to work with and just fun to be around. She captures people at their best and happiest! I get to spend my weekends making couples and families happy while spending time with Krystal. I look forward to another amazing wedding season and spending... Full Post >
