Spring has sprung at Brewster by the Sea Inn and Spa

Last summer I wrote a blog about the beautiful gardens at Brewster by the Sea. In preparation, I went around with my trusty Sony camera and snapped many shots of the flowers around our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast. Several times during the winter, I found much solace looking at the pictures of our beautiful summer gardens in that blog. I decided to do the same thing with the spring gardens.  Just yesterday as I was driving down the Old Historic Highway, I could not help but notice that most of the trees are filled with green buds, and it seemed like it happened overnight! Again, I will let the pictures do all the talking of how beautiful our little slice of heaven is on Cape Cod.

I have always loves Hibiscuses and have had them at both our inns by the pool each summer. They will  bloom all summer long if they are watered daily and fed with Miracle Grow once a week. This beauty was for sale at our local Stop and Shop, and I was a sight to be seen do my shopping with 2 of these plants in my cart:) They are tropical in nature so we will not transplant outside until after Memorial Day.

New green umbrellas fro summer dining

Yeah, for having our guests being able to dine outside in the warm sun. We just purchased two new umbrellas in a lovely green color. (it’s my new favorite decorating color)

One of my favorite things in life is to be able to go into our flower or vegetable gardens first thing in the morning when everyone is sleeping and pick flowers for the breakfast tables or herbs and vegetables for our breakfast. This morning I was able to pick enough daffodils from our front yard for everyone to enjoy inside.

Our perennial garden is now filled with tulips in many different colors. Many of our favorite perennial flowers are also beginning to sprout.

Our cherry tree on the side of the main house is in full bloom. Love to open the windows in the Garden and Acorn room to let in the sweet smells.

We just finished staining the deck and putting a fresh coat of paint on the pool. We also added some wonderful gravity chairs for guests to enjoy.

Our wonderful handy man, Antonio just finished placing mulch all around the yard. One of my Mom’s favorite spring flower can be seen in this photo- an Almond bush. It blossoms first thing in the spring and does not last long, but boy are the flowers delicate and beautiful.

I have always loved the geese statues in front of the Orchard House. This year the Chinese Andromeda are really crowding them out.

Mint is such a wonderful herb and while some don’t like it’s invasive nature in the gardens, I use it about every morning for our breakfasts and flavor in our filtered water and ice tea. This morning I cut slivers of mint on top of the strawberries and blueberries that our guests enjoyed this morning.

We have a small rhubarb patch in our garden that I reserve for one or two strawberry and rhubarb pies- that is our daughter Jenns favorite!

And last but not least are our lovely hydrangeas! I have grown to really admire and look forward to the summer season of beautiful blossoms. They grow here naturally so we do not even have to feed them..maybe just a little water on the hot days.

And so is the ending of today’s picture book of the spring gardens at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast, Brewster by the Sea Inn and Spa.

Wishing everyone lots of sunshine, flowers and health.
