It’s here! It’s here! Southest Minnesota’s most exquisite time of the year!
Whereas most people think of this as autumn or fall, here at The River Nest Bed and Breakfast we call it Septoberfest season. Check out the link to find schedules of events throughout September and October, including contests, parades, musical events, art shows, Papa’s Barn Boutique, parish festivals, great German menus at our local restaurants, and–of course–special programs at The National Eagle Center. It’s a great month-and-a-half of family friendly celebrations!
Here at The River Nest we’re hosting four Sunday afternoon open houses on September 19 and October 3, 10, and 24. Come and see our suites, then visit over coffee and Grandma Tillie’s Apple Kuchen as you enjoy our river view.
Plenty of apple treats will be on our menus this year. Our Haralson tree went berzerk!
We’ve had to rest the overloaded branches on sawhorses.
The barge traffic is still heavy, but the eagles are beginning their return. Along with birds, we’ve had butterfly migration this month. Luckily, these butterflies waited for me to get the camera and even posed for me!
As you can see, Bill’s flowers are thriving too.
It’s time for me (Carol) to pick more apples and pull out that recipe for Apple Kuchen! We hope to see you during Septoberfest!
