Tulips.  100,000.  Every color, size and shape.  Really, it’s a drop-dead gorgeous stroll through the Garvan Gardens From now through April 4, the Tulip Extravanganza is in full bloom.

Honestly, the beauty takes my breath away.  These gorgeous gardens herald hope, joy, and vitality.

Nothing heralds the beginning of springtime like the first blooms of spring!  Last week on a walk in the park, Ray & I saw a proud, yellow jonquil and I immediately felt more hopeful.

Hundreds of thousands of daffodils stand in full glory at the Garvan Gardens Daffodil Days.  From February 15 through March 7th, bask in the glorious display of color as more than 175,000 daffodils are showcased. Take a walk to the Three Sisters of Amity Daffodil Hill and see Mother Nature at her best with this magnificent showcase of yellow and white daffodils!

Of course, the Lookout Point gardens will be soon bursting forth with color also. We look forward to seeing you in the spring.


Winter’s Beauty Arrives in Hot Springs

January 30th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Winter scenes from the inn.

Photo on left, a few days before the winter storm came through Arkansas.  The grass almost looks like a sandy beach!

Last night a lovely dusting of snow fell, yet the roads were in great condition around the inn and to the south.  The birds are hungry and crowding the many feeders, but the cardinals wouldn’t stay still for a photo op.    Winter provides great bird watching.  This morning during breakfast, our guests enjoyed cardinals, blue jays, juncos, mourning doves, mockingbird, woodpeckers, sparrows, and chickadees just outside the dining room.

American Idol – Lookout Point Connection Tonight!

January 27th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Check out American Idol tonight to see Stephanie Daulong auditioning in Dallas.  How is Stephanie connected to Lookout Point, you ask?  She’s the daughter of the hardest working man in Hot Springs:  our gardener and friend, Pat Daulong.  Stephanie’s beautiful voice should take her a long way in the AI competition.

Although we’ve never heard Pat sing in public, he is an accomplished artist in his own right.  Besides his talent in the gardens, he’s also an impressionistic painter.

Best of luck, Stephanie!  We’ll cheer you on to Hollywood.

Willie Nelson Coming to Hot Springs, Feb 21

January 20th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

American icon Willie Nelson will perform live at the Summit Arena in Hot Springs on Feb. 21, 2010.  The arena is a smaller, more intimate venue to see and enjoy this concert.  Of course, you’re invited to stay at Lookout Point while in Hot Springs for the concert!

“Nelson is widely recognized as an American icon. His distinctive music and other social and political activities sometimes take a backseat to his pop-culture public image, marked by his red hair, often divided into two long braids partially concealed under a bandana. He has been active in social and political causes ranging from tax protests to support for a Democratic effort in the mid-2000s to bust up a Republican gerrymandering attempt in Texas.”  HotSprings.org. 

Currently Willie Nelson is performing in Austin to raise funds for Haiti earthquake relief.
