Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Pick Your Own Flowers

 While we were in New Hampshire we visited a "Pick Your Own" flower garden called Song Garden.
Heavy frost was expected so the flowers were not going to last.

You pick up a basket and a scissors and just starting cutting what you want.  The size of your final bouquet decides the price.


Granddaughter had been here before and knew what she liked. At home her flowers get arranged in a mason jar for her to play with. 

Dan was content to watch.

In warmer weather there is a self serve tea house.

 We spotted this gigantic pumpkin.  Too big to pick I guess.

The scenery around us was spectacular.

Maybe some summer day when I'm visiting again, we'll stay for a spot of tea.

What a wonderful idea!! I love that they have flowers and charge by the size of the bouquet. So need and Granddaughter looked like she was in her element! Might just have planted the seed of a future gardener. :-)

A 'Pick Your Own' flower garden sounds like a great idea, Marcia! What a wonderful way to share the bounty of a garden. Love the tea house idea, too! It's definitely worth another visit! Hope you are having a nice week! ♡Dawn@Petals.Paper.SimpleThymes

What a fantastic place to visit! I would have spent all morning there and come away with bunches of flowers!
