Fall At The Flower Farm
K: We first made the trip to Arnosky Family Flower Farm back in May and were stunned at the gorgeous floral oasis that surrounded us. The owner, Pamela, told us that we simply had to come out again in October for marigold season. She grows marigolds specifically for Dia de los Muertos, a huge holiday for the Hispanic population. We were intrigued and knew that a trip back would be worth it.
Now, after visiting a second time, we’re even more impressed with Pamela and her family’s business. Not only is it flourishing (they provide their flowers to HEB and Central Market grocery stores), but it’s also just a fantastic way to spend the afternoon. Every weekend, they open the Blue Barn as a flower market where you can buy bouquets and they are currently in the process of building a little pavilion to entertain guests in the future.
Brandon and I are starry-eyed over this spot and plan to return yet again for the years to come. If you’re interested, the farm is located just outside of Blanco, Texas; only a forty minute drive from San Antonio.
Flower Farm Attire
K: I definitely learned my lesson last time and came a little more prepared in the wardrobe department for this visit. My new Hunter boots were perfect for walking the rows of marigold flowers and especially since we’d just had rain, I was happy that I chose them for the occasion. Jeans and a light sweater did the trick for casual attire that also allowed me to roll up my sleeves and smell a few flowers. With a price tag of $19.99, I wasn’t worried about dirtying it up. As a final touch, I couldn’t resist this gorgeous plaid scarf and was thrilled to find a section of flowers that donned the same pinkish hues.
If you do plan on visiting the flower farm (or any farm) in the future, I’d recommend something similar to this outfit. Brandon kept it simple with grey jeans and a flannel that he’s had forever. Plan on wearing something that you don’t mind getting dirty!
