Summer Cottage: A Few Fun Photos.

Just photos this time  – so many good times this summer… these were all from an Ice Cream Sunday Party one Friday Night in July.  Summer is moving to fall and the pool is now just 74 now–so I’m looking forward to next summer  – and to the fall colors we hope to see from the peach and plum trees.  Next summer I promise to take more photos

Grass Valley Winter Gardening Before Superbowl!

Here in Grass Valley sometimes we have the opportunity to rush the gardening season a little bit. Yes! Spring Hill Cottage Gardening in February!! We had lovely 65 Degree weather today, although that is unusual for this time of year.  So we did some gardening before the Super-bowl…Let’s show you what’s going on. One disclaimer here- all of these have additional winter protection since, in spite of the ground’s claim – I think we’ll still have some cold weather.

Can’t wait for these tiny yellow roses that are surely coming soon!


These roses were tiny yellow tea roses that were a gift in the winter – They come live, but never seem to make it to spring ….until last year when I put them in our cool sunporch where they got the light ( and water) they needed until the warmth came.

Fun trivia on this herb – its very closely related to Oregano, I find it less bitter. Its very easy to propagate – just take a little piece that already has roots and place it nicely in potting soil and keep it moist..It seems tolerant of  soil with lots of oak leaves  and pine needles as you can see here. This will easily grow 10X its size this summer!

Back to the Superbowl…I loved the Clydesdale Horse ad– Did you know that Nevada County fair Grounds has a Draft Horse Classic Event every fall?    Follow the link I just provided. It will also give you the annual schedule of events at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, which include things like the county fair, dog shows, craft shows, and llama shows.

If you’d like to rent a vacation rental with gardens and a pool – Do think if us at Spring Hill Cottage and Gardens, the cottage is a 3 bedroom, 2 and a half bath that sleeps 7-10, is fully appointed and has a gas fireplace for additional coziness. When you rent it, you get to see what we have growing.. and eat it too- in season of course. Hope to see you soon.
