Flowers in the Hill Country
Last Friday Mom, Kathy and I toured two lavender farms and the Blanco square, all part of the Blanco Lavender festival. The small farms that we toured were beautiful and smelled delicious. I love that there is so much going on in that part of Texas.
We also happened upon the blue barn with a fresh cut flower market inside, part of Arnosky family farms. We briefly saw the proprietor, but she had to run out and said the market was self service that day, where can you find that kind of trust these days?! I'm jealous that mom will have access to Texas wildflower bouquets right down the road. I can get the same bouquets grown in Blanco at our local gourmet grocery store, but somehow it doesn't seem the same. I noticed that they were also selling goat cheese, one of my favorites, from another local farm. There are many more farm tours to be had in the area, I'm sure!
