I'm writing from the Victorian Village Guest House on Neil Avenue in Columbus, Ohio. This is my second stay here, and I'm delighted to say Bill is with me and also enjoying its considerable amenities.
I scurried around to photographically document its untrammeled glory before I turned it into a Zick den with my exploding luggage.
Just made tea and toasted orange-cranberry bread in this lovely kitchen. It's so wonderful to stay somewhere new, clean and uncluttered, as opposed to old, ehhh and cluttered. There's even a teeny dishwasher!
I would add that it's handy to Columbus' delectable Short North, where restaurants, bistros, antique and curio shops, and a fabulous dog accessory store await. If you want to buy costumes for your Boston terrier, Pampered Pooch is where you'd head.
I love computers. Except when they make me seasick.
I molted a little when I stayed here, too. Allium and columbine:
The peonies weren't even awake when I made these photos.
Hey! wake up! I wanna see your yellow stamens.
At least the foxgloves were up and bugling.
A view back to the Morton's home. Ahhh.
I'm afraid the Victorian Village Guest House has spoiled us for future visits to Columbus. Or anywhere.
Oh dear. The bar is awfully high.
Check it out, check in. You will never want to leave. We sure don't. We're settin' here tapping away on our respective Silver Surfers with the fasty fast wireless Net. Please accept our heartfelt Thank You, Lisa and Jeff Morton, for giving us a taste of the truly wonderful in Columbus.
