Just a Little Bit of Snow….  that’s all it takes to make a snowman, but it’s not enough to make a snow angel.   Cold, cold, cold days in January and perfect for warming up in front of our fireplace

with a good book… bring your own, or borrow one of ours.  Then add a cup of Jim’s fresh roasted coffee… today’s roast is a fair trade, organic Samantra Wahana Natural medium roast.   Don’t do the coffee thing, then there’s a selection of Stash label teas and, of course, hot cocoa with a generous helping of whipped cream!

Springtime in Blackstone

March 24th, 2008 by Grey Swan Inn


It’s that time of year for daffodils, forget-me-nots and forsythia to bloom here in Blackstone, VA. The weather today is still pretty cool outside, but the blossoms are telling me that warmer weather is on its way soon!

And it will soon be time to go fishing again.. I suppose that there are those dedicated fishermen who will fish year-round, but I’m of the warm weather variety! I recently purchased my Virginia fishing license and am taking stock of the different places to fish in the area…. I’ll be back soon with a list of streams and lakes.
