Good Morning!

"I have always been delighted at the prospects of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning." ~ J.B. Priestley Don't know about you, but Mondays are not always my favorite day of the week... They are always busy and can seem overwhelming by a long list of things to do for the week. However, I hope you all are able to take this Monday a moment at a time and find a little rest and peace today! Have a wonderful Monday Tea Friends!!

Happy 87th Birthday to the Queen

Happy 87th's Birthday to Queen Elizabeth II!  Though the Queens' birthday is April 21st, she celebrates it twice. Once in April and the other in June, because the weather is better for outdoor festivities!  Two birthdays sound like a nice idea to me! :)  We'll be hosting a special Queen's birthday celebration in June... A Candlelight Tea Party on June 7th at 6:30! Call today to make your reservations! 641-342-1547

Sound of Music

“There was only the enormous, empty prairie, with grasses blowing in waves of light and shadow across it, and the great blue sky above, and the birds flying up from it and singing with joy because the sun was rising. And on the whole enormous prairie there was no sign that any other human being had ever been there…”  ~ Laura Ingles Wilder The "Prairies" are alive with the Sound of Music with a song they have sung for a thousand years...  Mr. Meadowlark has officially returned to Longview Farms, along with many of his other feathery-friends. We are blessed each morning to wake to their cheerful song!  Why not rent a room at Longview Farms Bed and Breakfast and wake up to the song of the Meadowlark. Their song will fill your heart with gladness!
