Once Again…Winter is closing in,
The animals are ready for winter. Their coats are thick and fluffy and the chickens are changing their egg laying habits to conserve the energy needed in the coming months. The cows are very frisky and seem to like the cold weather.
At Thyme in the Country we are trying our best to enjoy the coming of winter too. Along with changing the clocks back to Eastern Standard Time; we are changing around the accoutrements within the house too. Winter bedding, fires in the hearth, hot breakfasts with winter ingredients, and seasonal decor where greenery reigns inside and out. We bring in loads of balsam and pine and create wreaths and garlands for the house decorating in a woodsey old fashioned way. Candlelight and soft music add to the moment and we invite guests to enjoy this time of year with us by attending Afternoon Holiday Teas on the weekends. We serve teas, cakes, cookies and savory treats all locally sourced and made using traditional and european recipes. Stayed tuned for photos and descriptions to come as the month of December unfolds.
