Farmstead Garden Pictures....









 What beautiful gardens on the farmstead. We sure enjoyed visiting them.























 We visited the Farmstead with my parents and we all had a good time. It was a special treat.


 Dad wore his straw hat to protect from the sun... and used his cane... and wore his insulated vest so he didn't get cold! :)   You can see him in the picture below.














 So many beautiful flowers...




















 This shows my Dad, 2 of my daughters and one son.... and my son is actually pushing my mom in a wheelchair. She can walk, but long walks like this are too hard on her since she injured her back a couple of years ago, so we push her in a wheelchair for such a trip.









 This woodland garden was quiet and peaceful.  

There was a nice collection of large chimes in the trees in the woods and what a beautiful sound they made!











































 A fun idea for a planter... appropriate for a farmstead garden!




















  I  especially LOVE the picture below! That little girl had just hugged the statue of the little girl. I didn't get a photo of that, but I did get this photo of her saying good bye to the "little girl". So sweet!   :)

















 The grain bin tops out there house an eagle, bobcat and other animals and birds.





































 My dad loves the farm equipment and he tells us what each item is and if he used it when he was a kid on the farm. These are precious times.





































 The bridges in the woods were closed because of flood damage and some of the paths were closed.  This tree's roots have become exposed by the flood waters and hopefully, the tree won't be damaged from it.


















 I loved looking at the barn through the flowers. 







































































What beautiful gardens they have. We have been to this place before and I posted about it in this post:

Getting More Out of a Field Trip


The flowers are different this time... and so were some other things, but it was another enjoyable trip.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of the homestead gardens.  Thank you for visiting today.
