Hints of springtime at Lookout Point, Hot Springs

We are doing the happy dance as signs of approaching springtime are popping out in the gardens. The phlox are in full bloom, daffodils proudly produce yellow trumpets, yellow buds dot the forsythias, and even the weeds are a welcome sign of new life.

To top off this glorious day, the annual mallards (Ricky & Lucy) appeared during breakfast today. Guests were taking lots of photos, as the male and female ducks fed underneath the bird feeder. These ducks stay until late fall, and last year they nested and laid eggs. Maybe this year some will actually hatch!

We hope this day has been filled with love for all of you! Happy Valentine’s.
