The driveway was lined with a bed of roses, dahlias and vegetables.
One of the vendors here created pieces out of driftwood.
As we wandered toward the house, we found the foundation mosaic we had read about. Wrapping around three sides of the house, it took Steve 11 years to complete.
Photography is difficult during very bright, sunny days, so I am doing my best to edit a bit in hopes that the photos reveal what we saw.
A sunny deck high up on the house has a tree top view.
Part of the garden shed serves as the produce stand for the farm. They sell fruits and vegetables on the honor system, but mostly apples. Their orchard has over 400 apple, pear, and plum trees.
More vendors showed their wares. I loved the whimsical creations of Emerald Greens Yardart.I bought a railroad spike slug and a machine parts bird with a silverware tail.
Trails lead into the woods if you want to go exploring.
Or you can stay in the cultivated part and enjoy the many dahlias just coming into bloom.
Did I mention that there are LOTS of dahlias?
I enjoyed a visit with this artist.
Top was eyeing the hammock.
Neither of us felt the need to go into the orchard, with it's 400 trees. But if the apples were ripe, we might have.
I talked to several other garden visitors at this point and we all agreed that this was way to much work for us to even imagine. But the Butlers, who have had this property in their family for 40 years, were obviously loving it.
