Hello to Summer in St. Augustine!

I love summer in St. Augustine, I do. I love the free concerts on the pier every Wednesday, free concerts in the plaza every Thursday, the movies on the bay, our free margarita nights, Mike’s homemade ice cream (you do know that in July, August and September we have Mike’s homemade ice cream every Wednesday, … Read More

Gardens of St. Augustine: Secrets of the Bayfront Marin House

There are so many reasons that I love to garden–the connection with the soil (I guess this farm girl hasn’t shaken that off yet), that good tired feeling you have after planting all day, the ability to enjoy the landscape you’ve created…but one of the things that I’ve really come to love is the fact … Read More

Tiffany Blue Wedding Decor

Tiffany blue is such a beautiful color, and it lives easily with many other colors. Add pink and it’s sweet and girly, add a citrine green and it’s a shot of spring. Add brown and it’s a modern masculine statement. We had a wedding last weekend¬†and paired it with burnt orange flowers, for a fresh … Read More

Flowers of the Day: Yellow Hibiscus

It is amazing how many people stop to take pictures of our yellow hibiscus. I planted them two years ago because I wanted something bright and sunny…and I wanted a deep, vibrant yellow (not a lemony color). The red centers of this variety makes them seem even more sunshine-y. And the best news of all? … Read More

Flowers of the Day: Succulents and Roses

I am a HUGE fan of succulents, and we have a lot of them in pots at the inn. I like their dusty colors, the huge variety of leaves, and the fact that they don’t need water. Which means that they generally live, even in the Florida sunshine. We hosted a wedding this weekend where … Read More

Peep Show!

Well, that got your attention, didn’t it? It was just a way to get you to check out our flower arrangement this week. Sweet, right?

Flower of the Day: Orange!!

Okay, so orange isn’t a flower, it’s a color (or a fruit, especially yummy here in sunny Florida!) Earlier this month, we hosted a wedding for a lovely couple, both originally from Venezuela. They held a very impromptu wedding–deciding to get married just a little over a week before their stay. In keeping with the … Read More

Flowers of the Day: Petunias

There was a time that I didn’t love petunias. ¬†It was partly because of their spicy smell, and partly because they get so leggy in the heat. Well, they smell the same (just smell my car after I pick up a few flats), but the newest versions stay compact and bushy. Needless to say, I … Read More

Flowers of the Day: Yellow Roses

What’s happier, sunnier, more summery than yellow? NOTHING!!! This photo is from Brianna and Adrian’s wedding, held in the gazebo yesterday. Brianna carried a gorgeous round bouquet of yellow roses, and her groom sported a yellow tie and yellow boutenniere. The girls wore yellow ribbons in their hair, yellow sandals, and–of course–yellow pedis. Now, this … Read More
