I was visiting Dries Farm this weekend. I was so enchanted by the atmosphere Margaret and Andrea create at their beautiful farm.

I live close by and see the hard work these ladies and staff put into making their farm work. The planning and artistry that went into the Secret Garden so young ones can enjoy a bit of wonder and merriment in a year that has been trying for many. The grandparents who bring the grandkids, so they can enjoy the outdoors, sunshine and bounty the land brings. The regenerative feeling their store offers, with all the handcrafted and oh-so-good smelling goodies they craft.

We are so blessed to live in this land, to enjoy the abundance offered, even in tough times, to have neighbors and friends that offer such talents.

What a lovely way to begin the season of Thanksgiving!
