Plant Sale Dates for 2017

Annual Plant Sale May 26th & 27th 10am-4pm

 

This year we will  again offer varieties of lavender that are cold hardy to Colorado and zone 5, as well as a few varieties that do well in pots as annuals. We are also growing up tomatoes, succulents, annuals and hanging baskets. Our greenhouse if full! Pruning of the lavender bushes is almost complete, the anticipated bloom time for the lavender field is early July. During the months of June & July you are invited to visit our gardens and farm stand Thursday’s, Fridays and some Saturdays, (based on weekend market dates we are finalizing) watch our website and event calendar for more information. As always if you have questions, feel free to email or call. Happy Spring

Growing up in Colorado I learned early that you get to experience all four seasons and many of surprises in the month of April. Spring keeps me on my toes, I know Mother Nature has a sense of humor, I’m pretty sure I can hear her laughing at me! That’s okay because in May I get to enjoy the smell of rain, one of my favorite scents (after lavender of course). Did you know plant oils contribute to the smell of rain? Read about the powerful scent of rain in this article from Smithsonian.com. Next time it rains, step outside and take a deep breath!
I recently found this quote on a tea bag tag and find it appropriate for the season! ~The difference between a flower and a weed is judgment. ~unknown Let your dandelions feed the bee’s, it’s their first meal after a long cold winter in the hive.
