Spring is always a glorious time at Wintergreen. Trees, flowers, animals and people celebrate the new season. Scenery that is spectacular in winter is even more so in spring. We love it!

Unfortunately, our feelings are somewhat dampened this year by necessary restrictions on gatherings and the precautions (which we heartily support) we are taking to avoid contracting or spreading Covid-19.

That doesn’t mean, however, that we can’t have any fun. While most of the seasonal fun activities involve social contact or items in short supply, like eggs, many don’t. We would like to share some of these with you.

Cooking

One of the things we have seen during the pandemic is an upsurge of cooking. Here are some perennially favorite recipes. We hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we have.

Games

This site has links to a combination of Easter-related games and puzzles for adults and children, most of which are free. You can print some and play some on your computer. This site has similar activities related to Passover. You can find trivia quizzes, coloring books, games, word and crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, computer games, and more. Try this: print a collection of tasks (like “Bunny Hop Five Times”), put them inside plastic eggs, and have your kids select an egg and follow the instructions. Good for burning off some excess energy!

Real Estate

We also want you to know that we are still available to assist with your real estate needs. Factors like low interest rates, available properties and continued interest have combined to stimulate real estate activity, especially for an exceptional area like Wintergreen and the Rockfish Valley. With an eye to working from home, we have recently retooled our website for phones and tablets, and it’s available to you 24-7. We have videos and 360-degree virtual tours you can use to tour properties from your phone or computer. We are also available by appointment to interact personally, even if the interaction is not face-to-face. Go to our website for suggestions on how we can safely meet your real estate needs.

As always, we remain eager to assist you, and wish you, your family and friends all the best.
