It is our favorite time of year here at The Mill; the earth is shaking off the last remnants of winter and dressing herself in the playful colors of spring. The sun is gaining strength in the sky, bringing its welcome warmth, and even the colorful blooms seem to rejoice. It seems perhaps cliché to mention the gentleness of flowers in the springtime, yet they do serve as a constant reminder to life’s more contemplative side; it is their simple humility that seeks to define a more peaceful measure of time.
Appropriately, wedding season is ramping up to full force, and while our staff joyfully anticipates our upcoming celebrations – planting and pruning, weeding and watering, cooking and preparing– we also find our catharsis in taking a moment to stop and truly appreciate the grounds here as they burst to life.
Please enjoy a few shots captured at The Mill over the last few weeks as we watched the season take hold.
