Hello everyone! I hope all is well! I’m sad to announce that this will be my last blog post here, but there is another wonderful photographer stepping up to write about her work! I’m excited for her and can’t wait to see what she shares with all of us!
I was unsure of what I wanted to write for this blog as it’s my last one. Do I write about the ending of the semester or something else? Well, I went with something else.
For this blog, I’m going to share a surprise trip my mom, little siblings and I went on this past weekend. But first I want to say thank you for allowing me to share my stories and perspectives of growing up on the farm. By becoming a writer for the blog I have become more confident in my work, and with sharing and talking about what happens on the farm. My high school wasn’t as accepting as the Marywood community has been about it and I’m so great full for that!
Anyway, I’ll get back on track! This weekend my mom surprised me by getting tickets to go to Brown Hill Farms, which is a local farm in Tunkhannock, PA, that has grown over 400,000 tulips. If you have the chance I highly recommend going to check it out!
They have a section of tulips where you can pick your own for $1.00 a flower, $1.00 per bulb, or you can even buy potted tulips to take home and plant yourself. You only have an hour to be on the farm because of Covid, but it’s a very exciting hour!
My little sister and I went CRAZY with picking our own tulips. My mom tried to get us to only pick a couple, but we ending up picking 35. Yes, 35 tulips. I have them all over in my house! It’s addicting as you walk down the rows you see a different color that you haven’t picked before! Hence how we ended up with 35.
They also have animals that you can go and pet, playgrounds for little kids, and a barn with “merch” that you can buy to take home!
My mom had all intentions of getting photos with me and my siblings, but we got so distracted there were only a few taken! But that’s okay it’s the memories that matter! Here are the photos
We did have to wear a mask, but I was able to quickly take her mask down for the one photograph as no one was around!
In complete honesty, I have plans to go with my best friends and my little siblings on my dad’s side of the family. I loved being there and can’t wait to experience it with them and see their reactions.
That’s all I have to share for my final blog! Once again thank you for being such a great audience with who I could share my work!
