St. Patricks Day is right around the corner and that means

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!

 

and I don't have a clue for what to get for such a wonderful husband!

Actually, his favorite food is weiner schnitzel so I do believe I will be taking him to Fritz & Frites for dinner.  He will love that. He recommended this restaurant to a guest that is staying with us right now and she was so kind to bring him back a schnitzel.  She had a great suggestion.  To keep her weight under control, after she orders her food she puts half of it in a take home box.  Great suggestion!

Dave also enjoys the buffet at Breitbach's.  It's in Balltown Iowa and it is about an hour away. Balltown has the greatest valley view of the Mississippi River.  This road is highly traveled by bikers for it's scenery.

"It's Been A Pleasure!"

 

Gardens - Spring 2011

Posted by on in Stillman Inn Blog

Okay, so it doesn't seem like much right now but just wait! This is the beginnings of our new "Kitchen Garden". Located on the lower level courtyard where only guests are allowed to go! We're using the Square Foot Garden method to create this soon to be delicious and good for you garden.
We will be using some of the harvest in our Breakfast Quiche!


Also New This Year is our "Garden Loom" presented here alongside "Mom"! We had fun putting this together. We saw a garden loom in "Backyard Crafts" magazine and decided we needed one. Guests are welcome to take the whole thing apart and weave their own magic or just add to what is there. For a quick fix we collected things from the park and just stuck them in for starters! This is going to be fun!

There are knew statues hidden among the gardens for you to come and find. This little guy is sitting in front of a plant that is grown widely in Galena. I need to find the name of it but it is great for rock gardens and spreads like crazy keeping the weeds down in areas where needed. It is a brilliant yellow in Spring - now- and then it's just a cute tufted plant through the summer. We will be gathering the seeds and packaging them up for guests who are interested in taking some home! Just ask for it!

And this is what I'm talking about when I say it grows easily out of the brick walls around town. Nice!

Let Us Not Forget the Birds! We are planning three bird feeding areas in the gardens this year. Sit on the porch and relax with a glass of wine or a cool iced tea while enjoying our feathered friends coming and going. Spotted a Baltimore Oriole a week ago. I understand they enjoy fruit so I'm trying to figure out how to make that happen for them!
So, Come visit the Stillman Inn in picturesque Galena IL. We specialize in romantic getaways and will help you plan the perfect vacation. Visit museums, art shops, walk the levee or bike the bike path. How about a scooter ride out to the local winery or a hot air balloon ride?
We can make it happen!
