Thanks for stopping, Sarah. June is a great time to stroll the sculpture garden as the early summer flowers are in bloom and mix beautifully with the original garden art. Visit again soon!

Thank you so much. It was a joy having you in and we hope you love your artwork as much as we do. (The artist is Thomas LeGault — exquisite.) And yes, that maple syrup is (we humbly say) the best in the world.
