One of our younger guests, a pre-teen, stayed for seven nights with her mother in mid-June. Although she was not a 'picky' eater, she favored oranges over any other fruit, and cinnamon rolls made her taste buds really dance! So, we served the rolls twice during their visit. We found great pleasure in seeing her expressive happiness.

At Mountains To Prairies Bed and Breakfast, lilacs provided the primary beauty of bouquets for the breakfast tables in June.
But with the spring season over, this tired bush needed a little help shedding its dried flower clusters.
Except for handfuls of spring lilacs, the simple summer bouquets enjoyed by guests consist of wild flowers, usually picked by eager grandchildren while spending their excess energy during evening adventure outings.
