Spring Has Sprung at Harmony House!

Did you know that there are dozens of different varieties of snowdrops?
Or were you, like me, perfectly ignorant in your assumption that a snowdrop was a snowdrop? Would you be at all surprised, as I was, that they sell for up to £175 per bulb…yes, you read it right…per bulb! Indeed, there was a very rare bulb that sold for £1850!
I do love these little hardy guys. To me they are a sign that winter is on its way out and spring is just around the corner! I think there are times in the seasons of life where we need to have little signs that the tough times are coming to an end and the brighter season is on the horizon, aren’t there? They can often be harder to spot than a snowdrop though!

As winter comes to a close, and spring is in the air, it’s a time when we start to look for a little getaway or weekend break, something to look forward to and to brighten our days. 

Harmony House Boutique B&B is a great place for a getaway, spring break or weekend break. Amidst miles of open countryside, huge skies that go on forever and plenty of flora and fauna to lift those senses, it’s a wonderful place to be! We are very near York city. It’s so lovely to come back to such relaxing and peaceful surroundings after a busy day or two sightseeing in York, or shopping at the York Designer Outlet nearby.

There are many reasons to visit York in the springtime! Here are just a few:

1. Blooming flowers: Spring is a beautiful time in York when the city’s parks and gardens come to life with blooming flowers such as daffodils, tulips, and cherry blossoms. A stroll through the scenic Museum Gardens or the York City Walls can be a treat for the senses.

1. Mild weather: Springtime in York is generally mild and pleasant, with temperatures averaging around 12-15°C (54-59°F). This makes it a great time to explore the city’s outdoor attractions, such as the York Minster, the Shambles, and the National Railway Museum.

2. Events and festivals: York hosts several events and festivals in the springtime, including the York Literature Festival, the York Fashion Week, and the York Open Studios, which showcase the city’s rich cultural and artistic heritage.

3. Outdoor activities: With the milder weather, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy in York in the springtime. You can take a bike ride along the riverside paths or rent a rowboat and explore the River Ouse.

4. Less Crowded: Spring is not the peak tourist season for York, so you can enjoy the city’s attractions and activities without having to deal with the crowds that typically flock to the city during the summer months.

Overall, York in the springtime offers a unique and memorable experience that is sure to leave a lasting impression.

The renowned Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens is just around the corner and they opened their gates to Season Ticket Holders for a snowdrop walk recently. I saw plenty varieties there. Snowdrops come with amazing fantastical names like Wendy’s Gold, Richard Ayes, Robin Hood, Madeline and even Grumpy and Octopussy. There were a few ‘What?’s in Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens. I thought it an exceedingly strange name, but they were the ones they’d moved and were waiting to identify! Springtime is a beautiful time to visit here.

So, if you are looking for a place to stay near York this springtime, then look no further than Harmony House Boutique B&B, as this is the idyllic place for a weekend break or getaway near York this springtime.
