National Look Up At The Sky Day

April 14th….National Look Up At The Sky Day!  If you are in Oregon, you might want to wear goggles because a day like today can bring showers, hail, birds flying overhead!  But be brave….look up!  Today I saw these beautiful clouds.  When you look up, do you see hope, spring coming, a dark cloud going away, better days ahead?  Take a moment to look up at the sky!

Visit us at the Feller House Bed and Breakfast!

Guests Bring Special Surprises To Us

As new guests arrive, we as innkeepers, always anticipate the stories and special interests they might share.

On two recent occasions, guests surprised us with special entertainment.  We had a  wonderful private mini concert on piano and violin in our guest living room.   We learned that their lives had come together through music and that they have continued to use their talents over many years together.

Another couple came to to our B&B to participate in a story telling event at Champoeg State Park near us.  At breakfast, we heard about their passion for historical re-enactment and that they spend their summers at encampments and historic events.  They came to breakfast dressed in their period costume and ready to portray local history.  He also played some folk tunes for us on a banjo made from a gourd.

 

 

 

 

 

Little Speckled Hen

Little Speckled Hen

You are petite, black and white speckled and always prim and proper looking.  Noting that you are even older than all of your other hen friends….those young chicks, you say!

We considered consulting a “chicken psychologist” about your strange habit of flying back and forth in and out of the coop, but our research tells us that you are intolerant of being “cooped up” and that your kind are “flyers.”

Wondering why we hadn’t been finding your little white eggs and why we have seen you outside the coop and then back in, we went looking to see what we could find.  Surprise….there in the barn hidden between two bales of hay we found a little nest with quite a collection of little white eggs. They say that Hamburgs like you are really good layers, and they are right…you give us an egg almost every day, even when it is cold.

You make us smile when we see you are out of the coop and have laid your egg and when we come with food, you are right there to get in with your other hen friends to eat.

You bring joy to the farm, thank you little speckled Hen!

This is just a snippet life on the farm…come visit Feller House Bed and Breakfast where it is not just a place to stay, but an experience to remember.
