Rainy Day Excursion Part 2

Con't. from yesterday!

After our visit to Chocolate Flower Farm
we made our way North to

Cultus Bay Farm House

From the Website's FAQ page

"How Old Is the House?

The Victorian – style farmhouse was built by my husband Tom. He started it in 1984and it’s been a gradual process towards finishing. Since he followed old building styles, many people think it’s really an old home. He built it all – even the windows!"

Strolling among the beautiful garden finery
dispite the pouring rain.

As you walk thru the delightful maze of plants,
you think you are walking thru a garden
but in fact, all of these plants are in pots that
sit on benches throughout the nursery.

The Knot Garden

Just as the clouds covered the early summer sky,
so does this cloud of honeysuckle vine
cover it's trellis.

Our day ended on a happy, soggy note.
We came home with a wagon load of
new goodies for our gardens
and a new favorite for our
garden purchases.

If you are ever in the area, I encourage you
to take a trip to Whidbey Island and
visit these lovely nurseries. If not in person,
go to their website and enjoy the next best thing!
"For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:"
Isaiah 55:10
