Thursday in a Garden

This week, we are letting mom show you some pictures from her recent trip to Minnesota. She, Auntie and a friend spent a week just driving around and seeing what they could find. This was a fun place for them, and we'll let mom tell you about it now...
Thank you boys for letting me take over today, and again I'm really sorry for not even getting the 'flats' out of the bag while on vacation! This roadside farm stand and homestead were a wonderful find for us. We passed by and turned around to go back...we are so glad we did!

The owner of this place is a lady named Donna. She is in her seventys and is a spry and spunky lady! Owning a farm had always been a dream of hers, and she is making is happen!

We walked around the yard and loved all the bright flowers we found...these purple ones are just gorgeous!

I don't know what these are called, but they are unique with a lovely color...

This is the house Donna lives in...There are fields with soy beans planted this year, next year they will be corn. There are chickens and a large vegetable garden too...I'll post more about this lovely place next week! Stay tuned...

To see more gardens, check out the Society of Feline Gardeners.
