I traveled to Valentine Hill late July to work to complete the landscaping in the "Little Houses" compound. I am blessed to have such a wonderful well there, as I decided to plant Native grass seed in the first week of August! But, hey! it worked! And now we have soft , drought resistant grasses in the yard of the compound, as well as some colorful, enjoyable plants in the center flower garden, which I have dedicated to my Father, William, who enjoyed his roses!

Comments from our guests ....

We have kept a guest book at the main house at Valentine Hill. There have been so many nice comments there, that we wanted to share a few.........  quite a few!

"Thoroughly enjoyed your beautifully decorate hill country home. All the attention given to detail was amazing - the monogrammed sheets and bed pillows, sink stopper with heart ... heart garland and wreath, stenciled stairs..... the list goes on & on. Loved sitting out on the patio with a glass of wine in front of the fire every night with our friends.

Photos at Easter time 2013

Wow, Spring is slow to arrive this year! Here are a few photos that show the status of all my Bluebonnet plantings!
Could be more impressive.
Progress is being made in the landscaping for the "Little Houses" compound. It is going to be so lovely, with curving stone paths, central firepit, nice trellised arbor and a fenced herb/ tomato garden.

Inaugural post on the Valentine Hill Blog ...... "Happenings on the Hill"

Welcome to the website for Valentine Hill B & B! We are so happy to be able to share some of the "specialness" of this property. I will continue to add photos to the site, in hopes they will encourage you to come visit VH and experience the feeling for yourself.

Shown here is the fireplace in the kitchen, with my "Lady of the Hill" that protects the house when I am not there.
