Spring at Mariners Lodge

Mariners Lodge has been a hive of activity for the past few months. Our B&B’s have enjoyed watching the incoming tide whilst sipping their early morning tea , propped up on super soft pillows! We all love watching the egrets hopping back as the tide rushes in. They hate to get wet, salty feet! Despite the cold air, it’s been very dry and our garden has burst forth.

I promised several of our guests to post some photos – with names – of plants that were about to flower, so here goes!

Our Melianthus major has five flowers to date, they’re quite a talking point!

Our lemon tree is now covered in new fruit with more flowers to come. The row of Echium pininana are soaring skywards!

The mass of flowers on our Cornus rubra tree beside the chosia ternata sundance and Ceanothus blue skies, is set off perfectly with the backdrop of the sea.

Always making a springtime splash – the Wedding cake tree – Cornus controversa variagata

Pictures always say more than words, but I suggest that anyone looking for a B&B should check out our guests charming reviews on TripAdvisor! Hope to speak to you soon!
