The mix of red, yellows, and purples caught my eye as I walked out the dining room door last night. There is even a touch of white with the snake root starting to bloom. The flowers will be coming to an end in the next week or so. Then we move on to black berry season. I am hoping my last season up here proves to be a good year for black berries. You just never know what nature is going to produce. Some of the crew members have hiked down to Brushy Mountain and found some there. I would say within the next couple of weeks we will see them in the upper elevations. The weather is still magnificent. I am not sure what the high was yesterday. Our weather box seems to be having some difficulties. I know I looked at the screen at one point and it said 60º. What ever it was, it was perfect. The amount of guests has dropped off. We can tell schools are starting back. This is the time of year we get more couples than families. There will be a little break before the fall craziness begins.
