Lodge guests enjoyed breakfast on the patio overlooking this view this morning. It was in the 70s with bright blue sky. A full breakfast bar featuring fresh fruit, juices, cereal and fresh made banana bread started their meal with a bacon, broccoli and cheese frittata to get them on their way to a fun filled day of moose watching, hiking, rafting and so much more.
The small trees lining the driveway have been replaced with these birch corner fence trims. See the process above. It now matches other fences and should last through the cold Maine winters. We hope you enjoy the new look.
This Luna Moth was seen at the Lodge last week. Luna moths are one of the most unusual and beautiful of the North American moths known as Saturnidae. They are well known for their green-yellow colors and long tails,and although they are often seen in pictures, they are a real surprise when found in nature. Although they are common throughout the eastern U.S., their night flying habits and short life span as an adult moth, only about 1 week, combine to make them a rare find. The luna moth, with a wingspan of 4.5-5.0 inches, is one of the largest moths in North America and is very common in many of the eastern states from Maine all the way to Florida. They usually are seen less as you go westward to Texas and the Great Plains. It is also found in southern regions of many Canadian provinces such as Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, and Saskachewan.
The summer gardens of the Lodge at Moosehead Lake add to the tranquilly and beauty of the grounds, so much so that Catriona Tubor Erler features them in her recent Design Ideas for Home Landscaping Book. Details include birch log fences, freedom beds of vegetables, herbs and flowers that create a medley of colors and leafy textures.
