Road Trip!!

A few weeks back, we went to see our oldest son Scott in Connecticut.
Before all this heat,
when an adventure still sounded like a good idea!!

I had so much fun and found some good stuff to share.

Robert Treat Farm
about 2 miles from Scott's house!!
He had never been here,
he did not even get out of the car as I flew out, camera in hand.
But that could have been embarrassment!!

How could you not LOVE this place??

A Garden Center...

loaded with flowers,

speciality foods,

more flowers,

fresh veggies,

and super fresh fruit!!

They had such cute and whimsical garden ornaments,

lovely shrubs,

and the Hummingbirds and Butterflies had their own spot.

And I just about wet my pants when I found this out back!!
But just in case you ever visit,
your not allowed to sit on this for a picture.

That's it, Robert Treat Farm, a real treat for me!!

  9. How do you know that you're not supposed to sit on that tractor. Did you get in trouble for sitting on it? LOL. That place looks so pretty with all the flowers. Love the butterflies and hummingbird flower garden.
