As I walk our 6 1/2 acre property I am always so joyous to see the first snowdrop breaking through the remaining snow.

I enjoy breathing in the freshness of the spring air. I can feel the sunshine on my face and it makes me smile. The breezes are starting to feel warm and you can hear the birds are singing their treetop operas for the wooing of their mates; or listen to the hammering of the red-bellied or pileated woodpeckers as they call for a mate. I walk by the water and I smell the earth, mossy and humid as the water ripples over the rocks. Oops I stepped to close to the water and my boot is filled in the goo of mud. The suction keeps it tight. What an adventure! The first few wildflowers are popping through the grass. I call them belly flowers because you have to get down low to see the tiny seedlings. Spring is just a “feel good” time!  Make your reservation to fall in love with nature all over again.  877/766/4273 www.songbirdprairie.com

Make your reservation now for your guest room and plan your trip to visit the quilt gardens. 18 super-sized quilt inspired gardens from May 30 to Oct 1. Songbird Prairie is just a short 45 minute day trip away to Amish country.  Take along a picnic lunch to enjoy as you stroll the gardens.

The quilt gardens tour is a free, self-guided tour that takes visitors to 16 locations throughout Elkhart County. Gardens range in size from about 80′ by 80′ and can include more than 80,000 blooms. Along the way you will find 16 large-format murals painted in patch-work quilt designs on the sides of buildings. Get more information on the Quilt Gardens Tour, including directions and maps at quiltgardenstour.com

 When you return back to the Inn, you may relax in a whirlpool with chromotherapy after your day visiting the quilt gardens. This northern Indiana getaway will charm you with their gardens and native prairie also. 

Bring your glass of lemonade and relax while watching and hearing many species of birds and small animals. We provide the binoculars and guide-book.  You can just sit back, relax and watch the sun set. www.songbirdprairie.com 877-766-4273
