Summer Fun

Good Morning Friends! It's almost that time again, time to open up shop and welcome you all into The Briar Patch. I am looking forward to seeing you again, or maybe for the very first time! If you haven't been here before, let me tell you a little bit about us. The Briar Patch is set on about 2 acres of beautiful farmland.  There is so much to see here, I can't wait for you to see us. We have the little Settlers Cabin, filled up with primitive finds. A cozy, welcoming little cabin setting on the edge of the garden, come on in and look around. Beautiful walk through gardens surrounding our resident old rust bucket "Rackety Boom", a 1940 International truck that rests among the flowers. We have so many little fun items to see. The old front porch holds perennials for you to purchase, lovely false indigo, so beautiful, bright and cheerful galardia, lovely daisys for you to take home. Whispering ornamental grasses wave in the breeze and welcome you into the gardens. Our newest shop is named The Old Homeplace and I can't wait for you to see it. Hand built by my wonderful husband Bob and I (with a little help from our friends too). Made from 90% of recycled materials we have gathered for years now. Wood and tin from an old farmstead, wonderful large windows from an old pharmacy from many, many years ago open up to show off our colorful gardens. Come on out and visit us.
