A simple red wooden chair has been elevated to celebrity status, and is being welcomed at Inns and B&Bs as it travels throughout New England. The Red Chair has been sighted in Concord where it was a guest of the Hawthorne Inn. The chair passed several enjoyable days visiting the historic sites of Concord for photo opportunities.

Established in 1842, the Worcester County Horticultural Society established Tower Hill Botanic Garden as a 132 acre showcase of ornamental, edible and Native New England plants. The indoor Orangerie and the lofty Limonaia are provided with imports and exotics that provide a year-long riot of color and rich scent. We recently visited for the 183 annual Camellis Show. http://www.towerhillbg.org/ Tower Hill will host an African Violet show in April 2012 and May will bring a Seven-State Daffodil and Primrose competition.

Beavers have been active behind the Hawthorne Inn damming the Mill Brook. We have lost 30-40 feet of land to recent flooding inundating the edge of our lower garden. This new and extensive beaver-pond has displaced a great deal of wildlife while creating new habitat for others. The wood ducks were quick to explore the area. But, at the same time, the coyotes have been flooded from the adjacent low-lying farmland and now range accross our property in the middle of the night when they had not before. These new night-time marauders have caused the red fox to now travel by day, in fear of their lives. A beautiful and healthy fox spends time on the Inn’s front lawn waiting for traffic to clear before crossing over to Hawthorne’s home.
which is a phonetic spelling of the Slovak for paw. And he has big paws! Sky, the Inn dog, loves her new puppy- now she is leader of a pack-albeit only a two-some.
We look forward to introducing Pashka to you on your next visit to the Inn.

I’m from a big city, where all you do is work and move at a 100 mph pace. But I’m constantly getting lost in my imagination, and to me, Hawthorne Inn has been the living definition of a Fairy Tale. Even this book I hold in my hands, has entries that date back 9 whole years, is a little piece of magic. I’m staying here only one night, but I wish I could stay for weeks. The coziness is enveloping, the history overwhelming, the beauty dazzling. I’d like to think everyone who’s been here felt as I do.
Isn’t Hawthorne just a little piece of magic? Definitely a perfect setting for a fairy tale. Perhaps I shall find a frog outside tomorrow and kiss it into a prince. The beauty here makes it seem possible.
Keep making dreams come True.

We recently received a nice note from Japan from a woman who saw Marilyn’s quilts featured in the Japanese magazine “MY HOME”. Several of Marilyn’s colorful quilts were featured in the December 2009 issue. her latest exoeriment is in black and white. The effect is dramatic. One gets lost in the swirl and contrast of pattern.
