Looking forward to New Things

As we start our 20th year of running The Morning Star Bed & Breakfast, I can look back and say that we have had wonderful guests and formed lasting friendships with many of them over the years, that we have enjoyed restoring this beautiful historic home, that we love the gardens, that we love the neighborhood, and that overall it has been an extremely fulfilling experience. At the same time, we feel ready to try our hands at new things … whatever they may be.

So we have listed The Morning Star for sale at 617HoustonStreet.com. (Use the menu at the upper right of the website to tour pictures of the house.)




In the meantime, we are still taking guests and hosting weddings and continuing to form happy memories.








Thank you for visiting A Taste of Morning. I’ll be keeping the blog going! And thank you to all of our delightful guests!

Wishing you a great weekend …

Abbey’s Rose, Pt. II

Back in December, Abbey’s rose was the last one blooming in my garden. I repotted it and brought it inside for the winter, unsure of what to expect. Happily, it just started blooming. A small victory over winter! (Pun intended: this cute bloom is about the size of my thumbnail.)


A lovely day to you!

New Year, New Growth

A month ago, I wrote about Abbey’s Rose. It was the last rose blooming in my garden and one to which I have a sentimental attachment. Since it is potted, and I have never successfully overwintered a potted rose outdoors, I decided to try to bring it inside this year. It is covered with new growth, a good sign for the new year for this little rose.






A few of my orchids have also recently sent out new shoots, a good sign that there will be blooms to follow.  I look forward to posting more pictures of them once they start to flower.


I hope that your new year is off to a positive start! Best wishes for 2016!
