…to our day at the farm!
Today has been a picture perfect fall day! A sunny Saturday seemed like a wonderful opportunity to make a trip to the farm! We headed out to a small picturesque working farm that I had read about. These sunny sunflowers greeted us warmly as we pulled into the parking lot! Don’t sunflowers just make you smile?
It was filled with old-fashioned simplicity~
We took a stroll out to the u-pick gardens ~
And spent some time browsing in the farm store! I think this was one of my favorite spots! It was small but it was filled with such beauty & color ~
And yummy sweetness too!
The many beautiful quilts that were on display around the little store were so inspiring!
I especially liked this one ~ a little cottage surrounded by flowers and a picket fence ~ doesn’t it just say “Welcome”?
And the old-fashioned displays were so pretty!
One of the things we found out while we were at the farm was that a farm tour was going on in the area and so we were able to visit a number of other farms as well. We visited an organic farm, a CSA farm, a Christmas tree farm where we were able to tour a 1906 farmhouse, and a farm that had a variety of animals and a historic barn.
So many delights to enjoy today!
One of the things I really enjoyed were the little flower gardens out on the farms ~ the simple rustic~ness of the gardens and paths. They really inspired me for what I would love to do here at home. It is so untraditional looking compared to what is usually found here in suburbia, and I think it has been a little hard for me to break out of that and just go with what I love! I have so much inspiration from today to ponder!
Maybe I can be a farmgirl after all! ~Smile~
Thanks for spending time with me on our fun farm day!
May your Sunday be blessed and your heart filled with joy!♥
