Sweet Summertime!

"It has always seemed to me, ever since early childhood, that, amid all the commonplaces of life, I was very near a kingdom of ideal beauty."

Lucy Maud Montgomery

Lucy Maud has summed up how I feel about Prince Edward Island so perfectly. Sometimes I have to pinch myself just to make sure living and working here is real life. We love welcoming so many guests to the Preserve Co. and hearing about their love for our Island. 

I love each season for the unique gifts that they bring. But there's something special about summertime here. The beaches, the sunsets, the sites, the visitors, the gardens, the food! It's an exciting time to be here. There's a certain buzz and energy that's absolutely infectious. 

We're so thankful to have the Gardens of Hope and continue developing this 12-acre space into a sanctuary of beauty and peace for all who visit. 

For those of you who might not be able to make it here this year, I wanted to give you a little snippet of the gardens at this time of year. 

I'd recommend steeping a pot of tea and sipping on it while imagining you're here!

Was able to enjoy your restaurant again while visiting from Calgary. It’s a family favorite.

We visited PEI in fall, 2010. A stop at your shop was part of a shore excursion from the ms Eurodam. Can’t believe that was 6 years ago! Your e-mail left me missing your fine hospitality. And your Gardens of Hope photos make me want to be able to crawl through my computer screen and bask in the sunshine and smell the flowers. Hope to return sometime in the future. Til then, I’ll enjoy the beauty of PEI from a distance, thanks to you.

The Photo’s are simply beautiful. I am a true born I slander but move to M anitoba when I got married. I have been home a few times like 2 years ago. I find the older I get the more homesick I become. I have also visited your place. Love it. The jams and jellies to die for. The photos bring back so many fond memories. Thank-you.
