In spring the daffodils, camellias, peonies and rhododendrons provide a wonderful splash of colour even before the maple trees clad themselves in leaves.
During the summer the trees give welcome shade on a warm day and a beautiful green backdrop to the mountain scenery. At this time of year we also enjoy the fruits of our labour from the garden – seasonal asparagus, herbs and a range of mouthwatering berries which all take their place amongst our delicious breakfast menu.
As Summer gives way to autumn and the mountain climate of cool nights and warm days ensures that over a 6-8 week period our maple trees put on the finest display of autumn colours for miles around. The surplus berries from the garden are made into jam and we continue enjoy our home-grown herbs well into the winter.
Winter brings the snow to the surrounding mountains and the diverse scenery changes once more. The trees lose their leaves as if to make way for the stunning winter views and wait for spring to return.
