• 6 p.m. Thursday, April 13: Blooms and Blossoms at the Lodge Kitchen – Spring wildflowers and trees are in bloom and are looking beautiful. But did you know that in addition to looking pretty, most of these flowers are edible and can even be used to make jelly? Let’s make a hug salad for supper straight from the front yard and use some of those pretty flowers to make some tasty cookies for dessert.
