We had another visitor that we hadn’t expected – a 17 minute tornado that decided to visit us at the end of June which felled an old Morin friend. A giant spruce tree that had nestled next to The Green House for at least 65 years. It came down at the same time as other trees in the area blocked the main road, but miraculously ours fell within a whisker of The Green House and barely brushed the main terrace – all 30 tons of it. The second miracle is that there is now no sign whatsoever of the damage that this old feller caused in the garden. The new grass seems to grow as you look at it and will be in fine form for summer wedding and B&B guests at Morin in 2020.
But it’s the winter guests we are now looking forward to. We’ve done some more works to Morin to make everyone even more comfortable – creating a little more space around the dining table, some new soft seating and putting in oak flooring into Clover and Blossom and re-modelling Clover’s bathroom. All with the help of our builder/friend/rally driver – can you see our logo on his MG?
There’s already been a dusting of snow on the mountains so we’re all looking forward to a great winter, welcoming new and returning guests, new and returning staff and – a chance to welcome Olivia’s baby too!
