Summers Past Farms



Went to one of my most favorite places this past weekend, Summers Past Farms, to enjoy their Annual Pumpkin Patch Days. It was a beautiful Sunny day, just a day after a wet and rainy Saturday.




They have a beautiful Farm, full of different flower beds, an Herbal Soap shop, a Coffee and Tea Bar, A wonderful gift shop and lots of specialty gardens for both Adults and Children to frolic in. If you get a chance click on the link and read about Sheryl and Marshall Loiser. Not only are they some of the nicest people I've meet, but they are both very talented and together they have built one of the most beautiful places I have been blessed to experience here, in San Diego. Over the years whenever I go to visit, there is always some amazing addition to the grounds. This year was this huge arbor below...oh how I would love that for my Garden !!



Marshall has built pretty much every structure on the property by hand. I feel like I am in a sacred place when I'm there. The best thing about Summers Past, is that you can go there during the week...and literally have the place to yourself...Really you should check it out...you will love it !




Chloe and Blake had a great time. They especially loved the petting zoo. They both picked up and held the chicken, Chloe was quite gentle with it, but Blake got a little rough...Yikes...it was after I got those shots that the lady running the gate told everyone "please, do not pick up the animals". Oops... Sorry about that little Chicken...




I found myself getting all sorts of inspiration for the SDCCS School Garden...check out the rest of the images here.

Summer's Past is absolutely the best! I was first introduced to that place about 10 years ago, and even back then it was amazing. I haven't been there in at least a couple years, so I can only imagine how much it's developed. And I have to agree, Sheryl and Marshall are super nice--I bet if I walked in there next week (after the fires are [crosses fingers] put out) they would greet me as if I had just been there yesterday.
