Our trip to the Antique Rose Farm in Snohomish, Washington was pure heaven yesterday. If you like roses, perennials, beautiful views and unique garden decor than this is the place to visit. I went with my girls and my Mom and we had such a nice time. I already can't wait to go back. I read that the family that owns this rose farm has been here for 20 years. The original home is a 1901 farmhouse.
This birdhouse with the climbing rose is what greets you as you enter the rose area. They had quite a few pretty birdhouses that looked handmade.
The coloring of this rose caught my eye as we first went in. I couldn't find it's name.
The lady that helped us told us these were mostly the English roses. We barely made a dent in seeing all the varieties.
Some of the arbors and benches for sale.
'Rock n Roll' caught my eye too.
Some of the pretty perennials. More nice decor in the little shop behind.
This arbor led to a large grass area with lots of roses and lavender growing around the perimeter. They had a sign that said 'Hidcote' lavender was their favorite. This place seemed like it would be perfect for a wedding.
Species roses, rugosa roses and old fashioned roses.
Another pretty rose whose name I didn't get.
My Mom and my girls under a huge arbor with a large red climber.
Another beauty with no name.
I think this is the old barn that now has antiques for sale.
The home the owners live in. Just look at the view they get to see everyday! We were told the pink roses growing along the picket fences were 'Bonica'.
My sister gave me a gift card for my birthday which I of course used to buy two new roses; 'Julia Child' and 'Gertrude Jekyll'. I'll share pictures of these once I get them planted.
I highly recommend a trip out this way if you're ever in the Seattle area.
