Meadow Brook Farm and the Quilt Garden Tour

Our last stop of the day was to Meadow Brooks Farm. The farm is an historic farm dating back to the Civil War. It was also the site of governors and congressman giving speeches about farm betterment.

The area was surrounded by corn and blue skies. The barn was red, the farm house looked like something from Lassie and I loved it.

The Quilt Garden was title “Your Grandmother’s Fan”. It was made up of alfalfa, buckwheat, corn, sunflowers and soybeans. It did not have its original beauty but the setting was great. On the barn was a mural and behind the barn a few livestock.

There were so many towns we did not go to, so many gardens we did not see. Still, I cannot wait till next year. This was a great day.
