White Flower Farm



White Flower Farm is primarily a catalog and online seller of perennials.  They grow the plants and also have a retail nursery in East Morris, Connecticut, just south of the lovely town of Litchfield.

In one greenhouse, they have a spectacular display of Blackmore and Langdon begonias.  These begonias have colorful flower heads that are bigger than I have ever before seen.


The theme for September for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Pink."  To participate, link your post on September 1 to the CDP theme day page.

Beautiful selection of colours, the begonias have a tough time here in the garden through the hot summer, but don't do too badly in pots and baskets.. Gorgeous first image Jack.

What a wonderful place! I'd be loading up my car with purchases.

Sue said...

Did you happen to check out the prices on those Begonias?

Almost overwhelmingly beautiful. Love the sign plus the shadow patterns in the last photo.

That's pure magic!

I'm no good at begonias though...

There are hundreds of subjects for my macro lens inside this place.

Those begonias are fantastic - such colour!

Kay said...

I've seen ads for this place in garden magazines. It looks like a great field trip.

My otherwise grumpy grandfather grew the most beautiful begonias. The colors were always a knockout and I've loved begonias ever since. I don't see them grown so much in the PNW so I haven't given them a try. I should. Your first shot is an inspiration.

I see reference to a birthday boy. Correct? If so, have yourself a wonderful day.

Looks like a lovely place, Jack!

Lowell said...

Dear Jack. From the looks of this post and the comment you made on mine you must think I'm the flower of the blogging community - in fact, I think someone told me that. Wait, what they said was I was a bloomin' idiot.

But I ain't stupid. Relative to your comment: You go first!

Randy said...

Bet those flowers smell great.

Dianne said...

What a wonderful place to stroll with your camera Jack .... I can almost smell the fragrance from here.

Halcyon said...

I love those big head begonias, although I haven't been very successful with them myself. Great colors!

JM said...

Gorgeous shot on top!
