fresh air fieldtrip…

Hello my lovelies…

I snuck away for a wee blog break, and now I’m all refreshed and ready to share my little vignettes. I hope you’re all wiggling your toes in sand, gorging on big fat blueberries, and clipping sweet peas for your bedside tables. Isn’t summertime simply gorgeous?!

My day has been the epitome of summer fun. My pal, Patty, and my daughter Jane joined me for a fieldtrip into the depths of Fraser Valley farm country. It’s amazing to see the burgeoning fields only minutes away from “downtown” White Rock (ba ha ha ha).

Our first stop was Vista D’oro Farms & Winery, where we found delicious preserves to fill our pantries with for those oooooh so long winter months. When we drove in, Patty spotted this bucolic scene and we both grabbed our cameras. The cat kept trying to jump down from the window (typical cat wanting to wreck my shot), but the awesome farm dog kept chasing it right back up!

Then we headed for Full Bloom Farm, where we luxuriated in the field of amazing lavender plants, and enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Unfortunately, the farm shop was closed, so we didn’t have a chance to pick up any treasures. But the lavender was so perfumey and literally buzzing with bees.

Next stop: JD Farms Specialty Turkey Store & Bistro!!! Let’s just say, way too much delicious stuff, really hungry photographer…ergo…no photos!!!! Sorry. It’s worth stopping here just for today’s special: open face hot turkey sandwich with stuffing & gravy (which I sadly didn’t have)! It’s like Christmas dinner in August!!!!!

After lunch, we meandered over to Krause Berry Farms, where I was blown away by the building expansion and garden additions. It’s like berry disneyland!!!!! I didn’t get any shots of the buildings ’cause I was mesmerized by the flowers. We loaded up with fresh-baked blueberry, peach and blackberry pies. Did I mention I’m not eating sugar right now, so I’m constantly in a bad mood and buying as much sugary food as I can get my hands on?!?! My poor family is having sugar overload ’cause I’m off sugar.

I love summer!!!!

  1. You were quick to get this posted, Jen ~ and I love how it captured our day. These photos are fantastic as usual! We’ll be looking at them drooling in January when everything is grey, grey, grey. I posted Tangerine Dreams on my blog though it has nothing to do with our day, just a reaction to color… one of our favorite subjects!

  2. You have become quite the photographer, Jenn. Stunning. I think that I need a road trip this weekend to experience some of the beauty which you captured. Great to see you the other day…love that helmet!!!

  3. Beautiful photos Jen. We did some Kundalini yoga classes at that Lavendar farm last summer and it was wonderful inhaling the lavendar scent. Sounds like you all had a great day.
