More from the Camellia Cottage Gardens

Friday, March 30th, 2012

A couple months ago we extolled the virtues of Camellias and told you that we are indeed aptly named for the 40+ mature (some of them 80 years old we think) camellia bushes in our gardens. Now it’s time to show you some of the other beauties highlighjting the gardens right now…

Awesome Azaleas

 

Jazzy Japanese Maple

 

Magnificent Magnolias

 And Iris, Anise Bush, Star flower, blackberry, blueberry and a few more camellias…

Apologies to Jeff Foxworthy

You could be an innkeeper if…you actually enjoy cleaning toilet bowls (and you have named all six of them!)

You could be an innkeeper if…your spouse has heard you tell the same jokes to guests several thousand times and still laughs at them every time.

You could be an innkeeper if…you love making breakfasts but actually hate eating them.

You could be an innkeeper if…you drink more coffee than all your guests combined.

You could be an innkeeper if…you have learned how to remove any stain from any surface using only things in your refrigerator.

You could be an innkeeper if…you have forgotten what the word “vacation” means.

You could be an innkeeper if…when the phone rings at 2 am, your first thought is not “Who died?” but “Who needs a plunger?”

You could be an innkeeper if…you enjoy meeting, greeting, feeding and hosting a whole bunch of really fun, interesting people.
