The Pierpont Inn Gardens on Flower Friday

Arty here on Nature Friday to show you around the pretty gardens of the Pierpont Inn.
 



We'll start with one of the beautiful fountains around the garden. This fountain has a Birdy of Paradise flower flying over it!



...and look over by this fountain



 
A beautiful rose bud is about to open right in front of it!



This succulent is disguised as a pretty green flower.



Wow! Here is my favorite kind of firework...the flower kind!



Some pretty yellow daisies



and over there are Mama's most favorite flowers...



 Lantana!



If you think all the flowers above were pretty, check out the collage of all the roses around the Rose Garden Cottage Mama and I stayed:



Aren't they beautimous? So colorful AND they smelled good too!

 
Thanks for joining us on our walk around the Pierpont Hotel Gardens. We hope you all get some time to stop and
smell some roses this weekend!

Thankful for Our Flag Thursday

Even though Flag day isn't until tomorrow, today we wanted to let you know how thankful we are for the US Flag!




 
We know even though the USA is going through some turbulent times, for us, the US Flag gives us hope for the future of our country.




We are looking forward to a day when people can look at the US flag as a symbol of hope again.




We are also thankful Mama gave us LOTS of treats for this Flag Day photoshoot!


Happy Flag Day!!

Travel Tuesday at the Historic Pierpont Inn


We're continuing down the coast today to Ventura, California and our stay(s) at the Historic Pierpont Inn.


 
Although it is now a part of the Wyndham Hotel chain, the Pierpont Inn was once a fancier stopping point for those lucky enough to be able to drive their cars along the California coast in the early 1900s! Now a Historic Landmark,  it also may be haunted by those who built and first ran the hotel! Mama found THIS ARTICLE which she says, if she would have read before we left...we may have never stayed there BOL! Mama also found THIS VIDEO if you want to watch more about the Pierpont Inn's History.





I was pretty excited when I found we were staying in our very own cottage!




The Rose Garden Cottage was built in 1925, but don't worry, it has had a few renovations since then.
BOL!



The Rose Garden Cottage is one of two cottages that are separate from the main hotel and were very private.  The interior is dated, but very quaint and the price was the same as a regular room.





Come on in, and let me show you around and you can see it for your self!



The living room has a big picture window looking out at the beautimous rose garden!



The kitchen window looked out on the back porch! Yep, we had a back porch where Mama and I ate our dinners!



 
But the bestest part was the fireplaces there was one in the living room AND one in the bedroom!



After a long day on the road, it was nice to relax in front of the fireplace on a chilly night!



Here is a short a video tour Mama filmed:


You can watch it HERE on YouTube


Join me for Nature Friday this week to see the beautimous 
gardens of the Pierpont Inn!
