Foxfield Inn. The garden beds have been spruced up, the bluebirds are nesting and the goldfish have awoken from their winter's sleep. The flowers are starting to blossom and the trees are beginning to leaf out. It is a wonderful time of year.
The deer had a hard time this winter with all the snow and enjoyed eating at our garden. So we have a special package for you gardeners out there. Bring a plant with you during your mid-week stay (Monday-Thursday) that are deer tolerant/resistant and receive a 5% discount. For details about this special see April Showers Bring May Flowers.
