One of my coworkers told me about
Itâ€™s relatively easy to find, but we didnâ€™t know that. Thanks to Liz and Jack (Danâ€™s Mom and Step-Dad) we found the place. It was absolutely beautiful. We headed straight for the sale. I picked up arugula, watercress, thyme, basil, lavender, and a few other interesting herbs. After walking them to the car, we walked around a bit.
The 40-some acres are just beautiful. The house is also extremely pretty. You are only allowed in one small part of the residence, but you can get a good idea.
The real highlight was the peacocks. Iâ€™m attempting my first YouTube video and adding it here. You can see this one peacock who was trying pretty hard to find himself a girlfriend. He was putting on quite a show. He first took interest in a light brown colored female, but she had nothing to do with him. He then flounced over to a small white female, and while she showed a bit more interest, he didnâ€™t seem like he was having a great deal of luck. Poor guy. J
There were a few tour groups and a few couples getting engagement pictures around the grounds. I can see why youâ€™d want professional portraits here, everything was just beautiful. I would like to go back on a warmer (non-rainy) summer day.
