Spring is here!

Spring is in the air and the daffodils are blooming, birds are singing. This is my favorite season as everything is becoming new again and all the beautiful greens popping up as the trees comes alive with color. I love sitting on the deck and enjoy watching nature at it’s best.
Duke and Duchess, our two mute swans have built their nest and are careful not to let other water foul on the lake. They don’t mind the mallards, but when the Canada geese come…. Oh boy, Duke chases them off right away.
Well, the other day two swans landed in the lake, and Duke was working hard to make them leave. It took a while, but he managed to get them out of the water and on dry land. Then chased them with his determined look and finally won. They flew off to find another lake. It is really a treat to watch all that happens as spring arrives.
You will love sitting on your private deck in the morning, sipping hot coffee or tea and enjoying a homemade scone while watching all nature has in store for you.

Feeding time at ‘The Covey’

Spring has come to Quail’s Covey Bed & Breakfast. It is myfavorite time of the year, the quietness and beauty of the woods. Every day there is more green popping, the trees are becoming full, and it’s time for new beginnings.

Last year, we watched our swans, George and Gracie build their nest and hatch eight little cygnets. We enjoyed them so much all summer and learned so many lessons from them. The care they take for their little ones is amazing. They teach them so much and watch over them constantly. It has been a wonderful experience watching them grow. But, along with that is Georges’ protective nature. He owns the lake. Each year getting a little more dominate. It’s not his fault….. that’s just nature. So we decided to allow George and Gracie to move to a new home.

New beginnings for George and Gracie and for us. We kept one of the cygnets from last year. We felt it was better for our guests to have one swan on the lake. We haven’t decided on a name for him yet. But he loves the lake and enjoys just gliding all around. He and our Black duck, ‘Harley’ have become great friends.

There is so much to do here at ‘The Covey’. You can enter Quail Hollow State Park right from our property. Take a hike or bring your mountain bike and enjoy the trails. And I’m sure everyone will enjoy fishing and riding in the paddle boats this summer right along side our new swan and his bud ‘Harley’.
