Isn’t there something about having company over that is energizing and exciting?
Besides the initial nervousness of making everything look “just so”, being able to show people what we do on an every day basis and share the beauty that surrounds us is a blessing.
We were able to have just this experience (only with a bit more sweetness sprinkled in) when we had a school field trip here last Thursday.
We were greeted by 10 eager, shiny faces and questions like “what’s this?” “do these seeds fall out?” “is this lavender?” “can I smell it?” “why?” “can I touch it?”.
Allen was the tour guide; his expertise in all things farming making answering the questions a breeze and easily satisfying curious minds. They started outside, walking down the paths and looking at the fields and rows of the various crops we are growing.
We are so lucky to have Teri’s photography skills right here on the premises!
Next on the itinerary was heading inside where the magic happens using what we grow outside.
Everyone had the opportunity to stand at one of our work tables and use bunches of herbs to make custom bouquets that they secured with some raffia ribbon. Thank you, Rodolfo, for the beautiful set up!
It was a pleasure having such good company over.
p.s. This class was a deviation from our usual business group and garden club tours. If your group would like to come see us, just give us a call! A lot of times we are in the field, working in production or inspecting wreaths before they are shipped out, so a week or two notice is best in order to make sure someone is available to show you around. Also, if you wanted to pick up a wreath when you visit, be sure to order online beforehand to make sure it is ready for you to pick up (choose local pickup in the shipping options). All of our wreaths are made to order. If you need help in deciding or placing your order, just give us a jingle and we would be more than happy to walk you through it.
