Springtime for Lawn Flamingos


While walking about the neighborhood above the Chanticleer Inn, there’s a garden bed filled with spring tulips and lawn flamingos.   I couldn’t resist sharing how some neighbors celebrate Springtime….

Apple Rose Tart: a preview of a new recipe


Apple Rose Tart

Apple Rose Tart

Apple Rose Tart

I’ve been experimenting Apple Rose Tarts of late.  Ran across this idea while researching some new recipes, both for the next cookbook and to expand out the Chanticleer’s breakfast repertoire.

This tart pictured here is with a pecan-date crust using red delicious apples.  It has appealing presentation, is very tasty, and is far more healthy than it looks.  All three great criteria for a recipe.

There’s a catch however. When assembling these tarts, it does take a little time.  It’s not difficult, but the time adds up if doing a tart times 12!

Thus apple rose tarts will be served when there are a few guests in the house.  You will have a better chance to taste this tart if you stay on Sunday or Monday night, or during the low-season.

Chanticleer Inn B&B Winter Garden


Lately, it’s looking a lot like winter at the inn. We had lots of snow yesterday that covered the Chanticleer Inn’s garden!

Here are some images:

Ashland’s B&B Network Video


Many of you might know that last year I was working on a video project for the Ashland’s Bed and Breakfast Network.  In June 2012, we obtained a grant from the City of Ashland to produce a travel video.  We are very pleased with the work JOMA films did for us!  Hope you enjoy.

Shade Garden, it is finally flourishing


Shade Garden sans Deer!

This is the third growing season without constant deer predation, finally the shade garden plants are bravely leafing out!

In the past the poor hosta never had two leaves at a time, the deer nibbled the leaves off as fast as the hosta would produce them.  I always had a vision of what this section of the garden would look like and now it’s beginning to come to fruition (or is that leaftion?)

In Chautauqua Square, not your usual street dudes!


Ashland’s Chautauqua Square on the corner of Main and Pioneer was abuzz with a different and refreshing look this afternoon.

A gang of tuxedo’ed young men were rambunctiously and cheerfully hanging out late this afternoon in Chautauqua Square —  displacing the usual scruffy panhandling denizens.

While walking by, I complimented them on their “upgraded” look.  One apparently felt obligated to panhandle and asked if he could bum a cigarette.  They all happily lined up for me to take their photo!

Late Spring in the Chanticleer Inn Bed and Breakfast Garden


A Bed and Breakfast Garden

I love this time of the year in the Chanticleer Inn bed and breakfast garden.

The “rhodies”, dogwood, lupine, Japanese irises, and poppies are all blooming!
Late spring in this bed and breakfast garden doesn’t last long, but it does make lasting memories.
