Animal Rights, Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast

Matilda is the boss and does not hesitate to usurp her "Animal Rights", as she controls our motley animal family here at the Millersburg, Ohio, Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast.  I believe that all but Matilda have lost their identies as individuals due to her head butting and controlling dictates.  Since being together, they all seem to do the same copy-cat things.  Earlier this evening, as though playing a game of "King of the Hill," all of them tightly crowded together atop this small pile of dirt, but upon seeing me, moved and Matilda went back to her bullying ways. Come to our charming country setting where you can meet our animal family and experience modern comforts and hospitality as it should be.

The daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips have made their annual appearance.  This week's agenda will include cleaning the fountain and beginning the beautification of our gardens.

Consider purchasing your garden supplies while here in Amish Country.  Our local garden center in Berlin, Ohio, Raber's Greenhouse, will open it's main garden center for the season on or about April 29, 2011.  Already open is Country Corners Greenhouse, 4401 Twp. Road 606, located off of SR 241 north of Mt. Hope and north of the Stone Barn.  Another wonderful Amish nursery is Yoders Greenhouse on Cutter Road, northeast of Fredericksburg. These are places I'll be visiting in the weeks ahead since I am the person in charge of "All things beautiful around the inn."
