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:

Southern Oregon Lavender Trail Festival


Lavender Fields Forever Farm in the Applegate Valley

Lavender Fields Forever Farm in the Applegate Valley

Instead of tending the inn’s garden today, my friend Peggy enticed me out to play tourist in the and check out the lavender farms in the Applegate Valley area.

Peggy has been anxious to pick lavender and replenish her dried flower arrangements.  I have been wanting to familiarize myself with the farms and view the gardens. The Southern Oregon Lavender Trail Festival allowed us to indulge in our desires.

Lavender farming is a relatively new thing in the area.  Four farms are up and running; and there are 2 additional farms starting up in 2014.

The two farms that most favorably impressed us were: Lavender Fields Forever and Applegate Valley Lavender Farm.  Thankfully they are the ones closest to Jacksonville!  I like the idea of giving people something else to do while wine tasting — inserting a lavender farm or two between the tasting stops.

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.

Sue Springer at work on the Ashland Plaza Redesign!


Ashland Plaza Gets Spruced Up with Ceramic Friezes by Sue Springer

While walking about downtown, I decided to check out how the new plaza project was progressing.  Lucky me!  Sue Springer was in the middle of setting the tile into the grout on  the side of a bench.  One side (not shown) already had all the tile, held up by blue tape and the other side was ready for grout.  I told Sue the blue tape was fetching and should consider keeping it there.  She agreed.  An wonderful artist with a good sense of humor too.

We’re lucky to have her design on the Ashland Plaza.

Benefit Screening of “42”


Movie Poster of "42"

Movie Poster of “42″

My friends Janet and Art want to get the word about the movie “42″.  So in their words here’s the scoop …

Hi Friends,     We hope you can make this event (see below).  It’s a benefit screening of the new movie “42” about Jackie Robinson at the Varsity Theater on Monday April 15th at 6pm. “42″ stars Harrison Ford as Dodger’s General Manager Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who first signed Jackie Robinson, played by Chadwick Boseman. The film is written and directed by Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland. There will also be a raffle of Brooklyn Dodgers memorabilia and speakers including John Cypher of Hill Street Blues and, of course, popcorn (can’t watch a movie about baseball without it!). Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling 541–488-7716.  Proceeds will support Havurah Shir Hadash’s “Burn the Mortgage” capital campaign. Please come see a great film and support the Havurah all at the same time.  You Brooklyn Dodger fans especially won’t want to miss it!
