Summer's Last Hurrah!


We drove up to my daughters place this past Friday so her and I could attend
the Heavenly Scent Herb Farm Summer Faire and as usual it did not disappoint.

Our one last summer fling until Fall arrives.

Are you ready for fall?
I am ready, although the heat forecast for this week makes it seem like the middle of July.


I love their attention to detail from the moment you walk in the entrance.



This was where you paid your $2 entrance fee and also got your hand stamped for
taking goodies to the car and returning.


The gardens at this place are nothing short of
SPECTACULAR!! 


My daughter Amanda is photo bombing. ha!


There are hydrangea bushes all over this property that covers several acres.  All the plants
and flowers were at their peak for this beautiful weekend.



They were having a sale in the greenhouses. Plants and garden art were included.

I purchased three different herbs for $1.00 each. They were all different "thymes".

French thyme, lemon thyme and silver edged thyme.

I also purchased a succulent.




They had a huge white tent set up with  a myriad of vendors inside. 



We also ate lunch here. We both picked the Grilled Chicken Quesadilla with
fresh salsa and sour cream along with the melange of fresh fruit infused with mint.
YUMMY!!


A little off center in this photo. I was trying not to get people in my photo. 






I told you the gardens are AMAZING!!









If you are ever in Fenton, Michigan and get a chance this place is a must visit!

Gorgeous place that you can walk through for hours...literally.

Here is a link for you if you want more information.

Oh my gosh....what an awesome place, Sandi! I can see why you love your visits there. Amazingly beautiful! Everything looks so lush and full, and I love the way they mix colors and textures. You're going to love having thyme. I planted a few different varieties of it in my "herb pot" on the deck (before we screened it in), and I loved running my hands through the herbs to release their scents during happy hour. :) Many of the made it into our drinks, too. lol Looks like you both had a fabulous time!

You have been to so many beautiful places this Summer. I love this place. I would want to visit it regularly. We just do not have anything like it around us. In the midst of all this beauty I love the emptiness of the greenhouse with the weathered items for sale. How did you pass up that white bistro table and chair. It would have come home with me. I just planted some more English thyme in my garden yesterday...my favorite herb.

What a gorgeous place. If I could only have one hanging basket like theirs I would be so elated. LOL Thanks for sharing with us.
