To Market, to market...

It's hard to picture what a flower farm looks like, so I thought I'd share some pictures of my mom's "patches" of flowers.

Mom's Yard June 2012 (6)

Grown on around an acre (split up and around the house and trees) are our flowers!

The glads are happy and blooming like crazy, but as you can see the zinnias and celosia are trying to catch up!

Mom does an excellent job of utilizing every possible spot for planting...

No tree base is left bare...

It's really a glorious site to be there! There is such beauty all around their home and their little patches.

The little smokehouse is no longer serving its original purpose, but it's such an adorable part of the property!

The limelight hydrangeas are getting some blooms! Soon they will be ready for customers!

Once cut they are bunched and head to the Market on Saturday morning!

It's such a joy to see the customers smiling as they walk up to the table!

I just love that beautiful display stand that Dynamo made me!

But, the best part is that Charlie Boy joins us weekly at the market!

He loves coming and meeting the customers! And...their furry companions!

He took time last week to bake in the sun! Dynamo stopped by to see us after his ride and Charlie was so excited to see his dad!

We always meet new people!

Looking forward to another lovely weekend at the Market! Stop by if you're around! Bright and early at 7 a.m.!

Love your mom's farm. Glads are my favorite. My great grandma used to grow those around her little house...one of my fav memories of her.
