Prompted by our innkeeper Susan, the 1906 Lodge San Diego, Coronado hotel, had 2 entries in the 86th Annual Coronado Flower Show. It is the largest flower show held under tents in the nation.
Our white orchid won both “Best Orchid” and “Best Flowering Plant” trophies. The orchid, a grand opening gift from Lance Alworth (retired Charger and Pro Football Hall of Famer) has been nurtured by our innkeepers for 2 years. It seems to love the northwest light of our kitchen. The exotic curve of the stems and its beautiful blooms won over the judges.
Our third trophy belongs totally to Susan for her table setting based on the beach theme of the 1906 Lodge. It won a yellow ribbon from the judges in its sub-category, but won the “Most Popular Place Setting” trophy from attendee voters, competing with dozens of other entries.
Earlier in the month, the 1906 Lodge won a blue ribbon for its beautiful gardens. With lush plantings surrounding the buildings and courtyard, the landscaping adds to the peaceful ambiance of the hotel. The day lilies are especially happy right now as you can see in our photo of our blue ribbon in our front picture window.
