This is *Burnside Farms 11008 Kettle Run Rd, Nokesville, VA 20181. Tulips as far as I can see. The price for weekday admission is $14.00 for children over 3 and $19.00 for adults. You get 5 free stems with your admission, 3 for children. Weekend admission is $16.00 for children, $21.00 for adults.
They have this ticket called a passport. It is $70.00 for the season, but, you have free admission any day or every day, plus 5 free stems every time you go. As an aside, this also gets you into the farm when they have the fields of sunflowers. Now, there are places that are free and they grow them, but, you have to go look for them, which is half the fun, but, this came along with the passport, so who am I to pass on a good deal? Have I told you that I have vases and vases of free tulips all over the house? It is literally #alwaysaflower here!
I have never seen them chastise anyone for picking and not purchasing it, They are just too nice that way. It is a family-owned business and they like what they do. After the tulips and daffodils, they do sunflowers, then later in the year, pumpkins and a maze, and then Christmas trees. They all work together and go out of their way to make it a pleasant experience.
What a life! To be carried around and doted on. The shame of it is that we don't appreciate it when we have it. We even fight for the right to be independent. What is wrong with us? We didn't know we had it so good!
There are acres and acres of tulips, two hundred different varieties. I have seen some this year that I didn't know existed. It is fun to find something unique to you. I pulled a couple of bulbs to plant in my garden. The good thing about these bulbs is that they are tried and true. You know that they are good bulbs and performed well. I like the idea of shopping for them here. I can see what I am getting. Bonus!
There are some sections with all shades of yellow or red or a particular color. Then they have mixed colors and styles. I like them both and like them both. I am more of a mixed color palette, a little on the colorful side. The order is nice too, but not for my flowers! Bring on the color~
The farmer drove a tractor with two trailers in the back, hauling little kids and adults around to the different sections. I think a few of the kids never got off of it. It was a wonderful day, steeped in the laughter of children and the beauty of nature.
Did you know that tulips originally came from Asia, not Holland? The most beautiful tulip garden I have ever seen was in Holland. It was called the Keukenhof and I have never seen anything as amazing as it, ever. Have you ever been to the Keukenhof?
Even though I claim to like an eclectic mix of color, there is something eye-catching about the colors in number. I guess as long as it is a flower, there is a place in my heart for it.
As an aside, Happy Earth Day! The theme for Earth Day 2022 is Invest In Our Planet – a call for governments, businesses, and individuals to invest in a better future for the planet.
I got both daffodils and tulips this day. I was told not to mix them in the same vase. I didn't know that the affodils have a scent that will ruin your tulips. Who knew? Not me!.
Please leave the link to your post here so it can easily be found by others. It helps you and me to have them in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much for joining us!! ❤
There were bikes to ride and benches to sit nad enjoy the view. I have been a couple of times now, trying to get as many tulip days in as possible.How can you not love the sunny tulip?
As always, there must be flowers to color my world. I just want to say that I am honored that so many end their post with a flower, to color their world. That truly touches my heart. #alwaysaflower
Once you are finished photographing and picking the tulips you want, make your way to the check out tent where there are table set up. Wrap your flowers in the paper provided and write how many tulips and how many bults. Each are $1.00 each, after your five free ones. Step right up to the cashier and they will take good care of you.
Thanks for coming along with me to pick a few tulips and enjoy the view. It was a spectacular day or three and I can breathe normally now that I have had my flower fix. I hope you had a good time and don't forget to return your wooden shoes if you borrowed some. Thank you!
