Stonehurst is home to deer, foxes, bear, porcupines, flying squirrels, numerous birds and many other types of wildlife.  This photo doesn’t look much like Spring, though does it?  It was taken just after last week’s Nor’easter.  Fortunately a lot has changed since then.

The daffodils and crocuses Nina planted last Fall are beginning to flower now, starting a parade of colors that will continue throughout Spring, Summer and Fall.  Much of our gardening and landscaping is focused on bringing monarch butterflies back to Stonehurst and Vermont.  Come see it!

Enjoy the Sights & Sounds of the Woods

Bring a picnic lunch and take a 20 minute hike back to the Stonehurst Brook.  You’ll see and hear the roar of Springtime’s snowmelt bringing new life to all who dwell along the stream’s banks.
