|My first "Strawberry Rhubarb Pie" of the season! |
I've already made "Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler" many times!
But the pie...it is the BEST!
Everyone loves this pie!
|A pretty painting of strawberries given to my husband and me |
for an anniversary several years ago by my late Mother-in-law.
|An old tray along with a vintage copy of "Yankee Magazine" |
on display in the breakfast room!
|A bookcase in the kitchen has the strawberry theme for the summer months. |
Notice the "Wild Strawberry" wallpaper by Waverly in the background!
This wallpaper has been in this kitchen for about 36 years and...
it's still LOVED!!
|Grandma's strawberry cookie jar, old paper coasters, wooden napkin |
holder holding up a strawberry cookbook find themselves in
|Mom's strawberry cup and saucer along with vintage towels are |
keeping company with an old tole painted box (done by me many years ago)
are found on an old oak dry sink.
|They have prize begonias and so many varieties of herbs, flowers, bushes and so much more!|
|Take a walk around the farm. I would recommend getting one of |
the free maps of the property. This will help you navigate the
greenhouses and gardens with ease!
|I have purchased many different types of hydrangeas...among them|
Little Lime, Pistachio, Pinky Winky and most recently Pistachio!
Take a trip in your car or from your easy chair!
You'll love what you'll find for your garden at White Flower Farm!
|A large snapping turtle has once again found her way up the 250 feet|
from the pond to the edge of a perennial bed. She's looking for the
perfect soft spot to lay her eggs.
Each year around the 14th of June, Flag Day, this
natural phenomenon occurs.
|In the pouring rain |
on this Friday the 13th of June,
she works very hard digging, looking around all the while being
totally aware of her surroundings.
