From the Pacific to the Atlantic



We have brought a little bit of the west coast home to the Inn. Did you know that Deanna is from the great state of California?

We have recently come into possession of California poppy seeds (the state flower) straight from the garden of Sharry Massey. She harvests the seeds every year from the poppies that grow wild in her garden and since her daughter, Susan works here, she wanted to send along a little piece of home.

Deanna planted them this afternoon in a few spots that have different sun and moisture conditions hoping to find a spot that they will be happy in. We are excited to soon see the poppies sprouting and brightening up the Inn with their sunny orange blooms.
