The Kansas Flower Farm

17 miles to The Flower Farm
603 miles Nashville, TN
176 miles Birmingham, AL

We drove to Gardner, Kansas this morning to take a look at The Flower Farm. I purchased three pretty echinacea with dark pink petals and deep centers.

The lighting in the greenhouses was gorgeous for photography. Keep this tip in mind when shooting photographs!

The beginnings of Christmas poinsettias were a nice discovery.

Hens and Chicks

I also think this greenhouse had a beautiful collection of hens and chicks. I think the response by an employee when I asked her what the big flowering hen and chick was... "Could be a rooster?!?" was very funny. Here is the light pink flower.
