Signs of Spring
Signs of Spring are really starting to show here. We have had daffodils bloom and now the tulips and iris are beautiful. I know all of you gardeners are anxious to get new plants in the ground. We will have lavender plants and others ready for sale beginning April 16th.When purchasing lavender plants be sure to pick up a sheet from the gift shop on suggested planting ideas
We all have Spring fever these days and it’s a wonderful time to be outside. Cool mornings and warm afternoons make for a great outing at the farm to enjoy natures beauty.
The farm will be closed on April 23-25. We will have a booth at Germanfest in Muenster, Texas. If you have never been to Germanfest I highly suggest you go. Great food, entertainment, shopping and fun. If you are a country music fan, Mark Chestnutt will be performing on Saturday night! Where Texas hospitality and German customs meet.
Mark Your Calendar!
We are busy gearing up for the lavender festival to be held Memorial Day Weekend, May 29-31. Join us in celebrating the lavender bloom. This festival starts the beginning of lavender cutting season. There will be even more vendors than last year and more entertainment to boot. We’ll have vendors with everything from antiques, art, handcrafted items, pony rides, door prizes and much more. Grayson Hills Winery will be here for wine tastings, Donna Hennard will be entertaining us with her sweet voice, and a dog agility course too. We can’t wait for the fun to begin! And remember, it’s FREE admission and FREE parking!
