After a long Canadian winter, we can finally enjoy the spring sunshine. In our Retreat Center everything blooms. Animals come out of the woods to see what is going on. We have started spring cleaning: we cut the grass, planted new flowers and fixed everything that was broken during the long winter. Recently we had a big excitement because a squirrel got somehow into our fireplace. It was not easy to explain to her that this is not the best place to enjoy spring weather. After the long negotiations, we convinced her finally to go out. We have already behind us our first bonfire, we consider now the spring time officially open. People who visit us say that if there is a heaven on earth it is located in Melrose. We welcome You to join us!
