Don’t ever rely on rodents to forecast the weather!! Groundhog or not, Gambier keeps rocking back and forth between milder temps and tundra winds and snow. With the official start of spring days away, I think we are all more than ready for some warmer breezes.
None of our arctic chill has dampened the enthusiasm of the spring flowers; they keep on trying to bloom and it looks as if Middle Path will begin its showy display tomorrow. Our sheltered courtyard already has crocus blooming and even the tulips and peonies are beginning to break through the cold ground. The birds are out in force — cardinals are particularly showy this year — we also seem to have a resident yellow-bellied sapsucker enjoying the pine tree out front.
With spring break ending, college visiting is picking up. Weekdays are still pretty wide open between now and the end of April. Weekends are another story. As of this writing, the only weekend with open nights is that of April 12 and 13. We always take a wait list so give us a call if you’d like to add your name. Kenyon has lots of activities during the next 6 weeks to keep everyone interested — concerts, plays, gallery openings, spring sports — a lively assortment of entertainments to enjoy
Remember, Graduation and Family weekend rooms are available only through lotteries. Please see below for specifics.
Despite the cold, Spring is definitely in the air. The porch rockers beckon; come join us!
