A Rainy Day Excursion! (Part 1)

T'was a very rainy birthday celebration
for Farmer's Daughter #1
on our day trip to Whidbey Island.
We checked out some delightful
garden nurseries.

The Grand Girls' first ferry ride

Welcome to Chocolate Flower Farm (click for link)

Big umbrella for big rain!

Taking shelter while petting the
piggy garden greeter.

Most of the plants at Chocolate Flower Farm are
chocolate colored, chocolate scented, have a chocolate name..
well, you get the idea...

Anyone know the name of this plant?
Looks like a foxglove with wee chocolate
colored flourets.

How about this tree with blooms
that look like white roses hanging
from the branches?



Pepper, the cat!

Please come back tomorrow for the
rest of the story!
"Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase,
and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit."
Leviticus 26:4
