George Barry appears at Jason’s Vineyards

 Saturday we went to hear George Barry perform at Jason’s Vineyards, a relatively new winery owned by Jason Damianos, son of Dr. Herodotus Damianos of Pindar Vineyards fame. The winery was spacious and had a greek mythology theme, specifically that of Jason and the Argonauts, complete with a bar shaped like the Argonaut’s ship, the argo. George was very entertaining, singing many of his own songs and taking requests showing a versatility that included everything from old standards to new popular hits. Sitting back and enjoying a glass of wine, a talented musician and a great bunch of people was a terrific way to spend the first weekend of spring. George will be performing next weekend on Sat. April 3 at Laurel Lake Vineyards

Spring!

What a great subject for our first Blog post- Spring.  And what a great week of weather we have been having to usher in the first day of spring. Our guests this weekend really took advantage of the weather by walking to all the local wineries from our B&B. While I was out running errands I stopped to take a picture of the crocuses coming up in front of the Presbyterian Church in Cutchogue and could not resist the garden across the way at the Cutchogue Library. When you enter the town of Cutchogue you see these two white churches, the Presbyterian Church and the Library, which was once a Congregational Church, but has been operating as a library since the early 1900s.  If you can’t make it out here, hope these pictures bring a little spring into your life.

Often mistaken for an early flowering forsythia, this is Witch Hazel in the garden at the Cutchogue Library. 

 

Hellebore at the library

Sometimes called the “Lentin rose” because it blooms during the Lent season, the early flowering woodland plant is Hellebore, an old garden plant that is regaining popularity with gardeners.
