Back to Heritiage Flower Farm

 This past week, I went back to Heritage Flower Farm to see it in bloom.
Beautiful flowers and fun added touches in the gardens.
Heritage Flower Farm is an award - winning nursery devoted to finding, growing and preserving heirloom plants.

 Betty, who is the owner of Heritage Flower Farm, sells at Farmer Markets as well. 
I met with her in April to get some ideas for market.
In April plants where just starting to pop up.  I knew I wanted to go back when the gardens where in full bloom.

 My Aunt Sally and Aunt Sharon both joined me.
And to my surprise, Betty had planned for me to meet her best friend Gail.
Gail is the owner operator of Yerke Greenhouses and she sells Cottage Garden Bouquets at the Milwaukee market. Betty thought Gail would be able to help me with ideas, share her tricks of the trade and talk bouquets.

 Betty took us to lunch at a fun restaurant called Wildflower Cafe.

 I was blessed with the knowledge that both women shared with me.
It was great fun to talk flowers and share stories about heading to the market.
I am so thankful to Betty for thinking of me in such a way to meet Gail and be able to ask her so many questions. It was a wonderful surprise.

 All of the following photos are from Heritage Flower Farm.
Thursday,  I will share more about Gail and her flower business, Yerke Greenhouse.


  1. What a neat venture this is! And to know that these flowers are not highly bred, but old fashioned like God made them. They are so beautiful! The tall blue ones look like gladiolas.

  2. Lovely plants and an amusing sign.

  3. That was incredibly thoughtful of her to introduce you to Gail. What a great chance to "pick their brains" and learn so much. You were fortunate!

  4. How truly incredible to have such a great day. I bet it was a day just full of beauty and fun. So happy for you.

  5. Aahh, look at that fairy garden, how cute. I've always wanted to make one of my own. What a lovely nursery this is. Those look like daisies? Such a cheerful flower. Isn't it fun browsing through the nursery? I always find interesting things there, even the hummingbird. :)


  6. Carla- I have been away for so long and missed so much. You are going to market? Congrats to you!!!!! What a wonderful place to visit. Love the sign- We have your Grandmother's bloomers. I am so glad you had such a great day- xo Diana
