Anniversary Trip: Blackberry Farm Garden Tour

Garden Shed

One of the highlights of our stay at Blackberry Farm was spending the morning in the gardens overlooking the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.  I loved every minute of our two hour garden tour and seed talk.  Row after row of wildflowers surround the Garden Shed where Master Gardener John Coykendall shared his passion for seed saving.  By noon, we both walked away with a little gardening bug and have plans to start a small garden at home.  I also have the perfect spot in mind for a certain pair of blue rocking chairs that will complete our garden (hint, hint).  There's just something about fresh flowers, organic food and outdoor seating that makes time pass slower and life a little sweeter.
