Time Passages

I believe nothing in the yearly calendar highlights the passage of time more distinctly than your children's birthdays. They grow and change so quickly! Below is my son Alex in Washington on Spring Break last week. He turned 13 this week ....almost but not quite
(thank goodness) a man.

Spring comes a little earlier in Washington than it does on Cayuga Lake.
Let me share a few photos of  their glorious blossoms......

The sounds of Spring!

Its hard to imagine  that  ice fishermen stood out here just a few weeks ago. Mud season brings the gradual rise of water levels back to Cayuga Lake.....

The geese are shouting their return..

The Peepers started peeping this week and the Honey Bees came out in force....Spring is getting louder!

Who can resist the beauty of a daffodil!

Ready, Set..... Open!

Our  Season begins today!

Don't you just love the wonder of  a Resurrection?
Passover is behind us, Easter is upon us, and the full explosion of spring lies just ahead. What ever your faith or beliefs are, we here at  Pumpkin Hill wish you and your loved ones a heart full of overflowing joy at this beautiful time of year.

Getting Ready...

I know The Calendar says its Spring, but the thermostats say its still winter!

Actually this was last Aprils Snow....notice the dying daffodils, this year there hardly a green shoot out of the ground.

My Son and I had a great day Skiing at Greek Peak yesterday. Alex has quite a beard for a 12 year old. 
I think its due to the all the fresh country air!

At the Bistro we are getting ready for our opening next weekend.
Mike Foster has been spring painting, we've all been spring cleaning and spring decorating...Cookie even made me vegan spring rolls for lunch this week, they were delicious.... I'm so lucky!

Don't forget to call and make your reservation for this weekend. We are so looking forward to seeing you all again.

Good Morning Springtime!!!

Pumpkin Hill Bistro & Vineyard is awakening from its winter sleep. We're  yawning a bit and only have one eye open, but we're out of bed, not yet running but quietly excited about the new season that lies before us.

Snow Drops exciting! I saw them just this morning, and on a day that they're predicting the real stuff.

Our first weekend  is just around the corner and that's
 Easter Weekend.

Friday March 28th and Saturday 29th.... We open for Lunch and Dinner.We will be serving 12 noon till 8pm.

Easter Sunday we are taking reservations for Brunch and Dinner... We will be serving 12 noon till 6pm. 

After a good winter rest and a little Arizona sunshine,  Cookie
is longing to get back in her Kitchen. She's been busy trying out new recipes and is very proud of the Easter Brunch she's put together.

Check back for the Easter menu and other exciting news in a few days.  So looking looking  forward to seeing you all again soon.
