Summer treasures

Hey friends! Well summer is rushing by us, I hope you have had time to take your kids fishing, eat fair food and get your toes in the warm sand at some crowded beach. Enjoy it while it lasts. I just wanted to update you on the goings-ons at the Briar Patch. Even though you might think the flower gardens are all fried, I beg to differ!  The Russian Sage and the Black Eyed Susans are making a stunning show! The black eyed susans are in all their glory backed by the purple cloud of the russian sage, they are real show stoppers. The dinner plate Hibiscus are a hot pink, and would make a great addition to your garden. Come on out and pick up some of these beauties. While your here, help yourself to a bouquet of zinnias,  we plant a garden full of these beauties every year just to share with our friends and customers. Don't forget to check out the primitives we have for sale in our little red cabin. I tell you, it's a great day in the country and I would love to share it with you. Keep your eyes open in the next couple of weeks for our barn sale. Lots of goodies! An old porch swing,cabinets, a beautiful fireplace mantel. Lots of great stuff. Come on by, I might even let you shop early.

folk art show

Hey folks! The day of the show turned out to be a great one. Kinda rough weather the night before kept a few of you from coming, but thanks to all of those that left the mess Mother Nature left at your house to come and see us. The vendors were really great. We had some really talented artists on site. I was very impressed with the range of talent we had.

Tom Troxell's work really spoke to me. I fell in love with this painting right off. This is only one of many great works. Thanks to all my vendors for your support and patience. I look forward to seeing you next year.
