The first time I drove out to The Flower Farm to meet Gerry, I didn't have my camera with me. Gerry wanted to do a 70 mile bicycle ride on Saturday, 7/25, to celebrate his birthday. He stopped here at The Flower Farm for a break. I drove out to meet him and remembered to take my camera this time. The Flower Farm is a nursery. There is also a coffee shop, flower shop, gift shop and also a B&B and a large barn that is rented out for large events. The first time I was out there, things weren't really in bloom yet. It is so pretty out there, quiet and peaceful even though Auburn-Folsom Road, a busy thoroughfare, is right there. This view is from the patio on the back of the coffee shop looking out to Auburn-Folsom Rd. Fresh, cut flowers sold here.
A friendly cow checking out the surroundings.
There are numerous metal animal sculptures scattered around the nursery. Here's a huge frog sitting on a lily pad.
They have a small produce stand on the property. All locally grown produce.
Beautiful heirloom tomatoes at $3/lb
Entrance to the Coffee Shop.
Getting ready to finish the ride.
See how I managed to get our van in the background.Some of the plants either just growing there or for purchase.
I thought I should update my introduction to reflect what is important to me at this time in my life. For years I enjoyed making handmade cards...I have baskets full of cards I've made and kept. I still make our yearly Christmas cards. My passion these days is sewing and quilting. I grew up surrounded by beautiful fabrics. I have found it is something I thoroughly enjoy. Sharing my thoughts of what is going on in my life through this blog is also something I enjoy immensely.
