Harvest Arts and Peace Festival

What a great weekend we had. Hubby and I played hooky from all of the moving and rigmarole associated with it. We ran away to the foothills for a play date at the 17th Annual Harvest Arts & Peace Festival in Prather, held at the Intermountain Nursery (same place I took the wonderful Natural Perfumery Workshop that you can read about here).

The weather was perfect, warm with a slight breeze. Lots of patrons strolling the lovely grounds of the nursery looking at their plants and natural landscaping:
Lots of demonstrations and informational booths such as the one on falconry that this beautiful peregrine was staffing:

Way too many wonderful craft booths for someone on a tight budget like I am supposed to be following. I couldn't resist to add another piece of Halloween decor to our new home:
And thank goodness I have such an understanding and supportive husband. I couldn't leave the nursery without these new herb babies:

We ate delicious Portabella mushroom ciabatta sandwiches and drank natural root beer - YUM. It was a great day and we really enjoyed our little escape from the boxes and mess that is moving.

More on the rest of the weekend tomorrow.


  1. How enjoyable it sounds ... love the punkin.

    Have a wonderful crisp autumn day. TTFN ~Marydon

  2. What a fantastic way to forget about the hassle of moving! I love the pumpkin-birdhouse gourd!

  3. Thank you both for stopping in.

    I just couldn't resist the little smiling jack-o-lantern! He begged me to bring him home with us.

  4. Oooh! Herb babies.
    I know there's peppermint there as I have some of that. LOL

    What are the other two? It's hard to tell in the picture.

    So glad you had such a lovely day together.


  5. Hi Bridgett,

    Thank you for coming by & saying Hi.

    The herb babies are Peppermint Geranium, Lemon Verbena, Black Knight Butterfly Bush (not so herbie, but sooo pretty), Mint Rose Scented Geranium, and Village Hill Oak Scented Geranium.

    I'm really trying to build up my scented geranium collection and this nursery seems to get different ones in all the time..

  6. You will love Black Knight, Jules! It is so fragrant and the Monarches absolutely love it! Always love the scented geraniums and my all time favorite, lemon verbena. Good choices all the way around!
