Baker Creek Seed Festival

As I mentioned yesterday, I went to an heirloom seed festival this weekend.  I'd honestly never heard of such a thing before, so it was all a bit of a learning experience for me.  There were pretty plants and old-timey shops (I bought the girls bonnets OF COURSE) and cinnamon rolls the size of your face.  We spent the day strolling around and soaking it all up.  (Michelle took that top photo)

I got to watch a rug making demonstration, we stopped in the opry house for some sweet music, and I zoned out for a LOOOOONNNGGG time choosing seeds from the many, many varieties. 

It was a really good day.  If you want to see a better, more beautiful version of our trip, you definitely need to check out my friend Katie Day's blog.  That girl has some serious photography skills that I can't even begin to understand.  (She took the above photo of me with Michelle.)  After I saw her post I thought, "This day was good, but I didn't realize it was so MAGICAL."  She's got the eye, I tell ya.

If these people look a little familiar, maybe you remember them from my mom group posts.  We've been terrible about getting together throughout the winter, but now spring is here and we are planning all the mom/kid hangouts!

  4. It looks heavenly! I wonder if they have festivals like that here. I had my first veggie garden last year, and learned a lot..by failing, haha. We are living with my parents this year, so I have taken over the back of the driveway with a container garden of tomato plants (whose seeds I learned to save last year). It's been quite the experiment, but it's looking like it'll be a fruitful one!!! How fun! Can't wait to see your garden posts!
