It really is starting to feel like spring with the Daffodils blooming all around us here on Cape Cod. Yesterday we took a walk from The Captain’s Manor Inn to Spohr Gardens to check on the progress of the spring bloom. It was a beautiful day and Kevin and I took some pictures and a video so we could share them with you on this blog. This weekend is the biggest weekend for Daffodils with Daffodil Days at Spohr Garden and the Daffodil Festival on Nantucket. For more information click here for a link.

Historic buff trivia – The Captain’s Manor Inn bed and breakfast was the first summer home built in Falmouth and E. Pierson Beebe of Boston, a director of the Androscoggin Mills in Lewiston, Maine, one of the largest cotton mills in New England, built Highfield Hall in 1878, another of the early summer homes in Falmouth. E. Pierson Beebe also built St. Barnabas Memorial Church in 1889, as a thank you offering for his financial success.
