New At The Inn

The Inn at 425, a gorgeous 19th Century home in Historic Northeast Kansas City Missouri
Proprietors Stephan and Carl have done amazing work on this 1888 masterpiece
 New additions to the porch, shade giving awnings and great new furnishings.  

But the biggest new addition is the renovation of the Carriage House (background below).  Painstakingly restored with new amenities for guests.

Went To A Garden Party.....

Visited Bruce and Veda Rogers at their bed and breakfast, Gladstone Manor, Thursday to see the garden they have lovingly worked on for years. Long time residents of Scarritt Renaissance the two theatre professionals (retired, sort of) have acquired extra land behind their home to create a terraced garden complete with a fish-populated pond.
At their suggestion I time my visit to witness the feeding of the fish... a frenzy to say the least... and I enjoyed tea and conversation before taking pix.....

The garden is on three levels connected by stairs that Bruce built himself.
It really is an urban oasis.
The day lilies are in bloom but won't peak for a little while longer.

The pond has a small waterfall and ranges from two to three feet deep so the fish and many of the plants can overwinter.

Actual shot of fish-frenzy as Bruce threw in the food.... one of their longest lived coy is emerging from the water right center.

Day lilies up close and personal with more of an impressionistic approach than absolute sharpness....

My thanks to the Rogers.... it was a great way to spend part of an afternoon......
