Though, technically speaking the summer ends in September, it's fair to say that summer is in full effect. There's only a few weeks left before it's over and school goes back. Whether this summer was filled with exotic trips and neighborhood parties, or not. It's okay. There is still tons to be grateful for and that's reason enough for celebration this season.
Whether you are looking for blooms u-pick or u-pick-up for a party, a picture perfect backdrop or just something fun to look-at, there's more than a few beautiful places to go here in the Peach State. From beach side to mountainside — Enigma to Roswell and all of the places in between—here's where to go to find some of the prettiest flower fields in Georgia this year (to me).
P.S. I've decided to make this a living list because I love to visit flower farms. Tell me more and I'll add it. Let's GROW!
Posie Fields in Martin's Garden at Coleman Farm
From April to September, zinnia, bells of Ireland, sunflowers, anemones, astilbe, doc, honeysuckle, cockscomb and dozens of other organically grown varieties in 35 beds cover the front of the 7-acre spot in historical Roswell, Georgia. Owner Erin Champion and her husband, Jason along with her crew harvest and cut flowers into gorgeous bouquets. The small but robust mosaic is just outside of Atlanta and it's stunning. According Debra Prinzing's distinguished Slow Flowers Listings, they "are at the Alpharetta Farmers Market every Saturday morning and the Avalon every Sunday afternoon with our adorable Posie Flower Cart." You can also find them through subscriptions, workshops, and DIY buckets. The flowers are available to the public and florist wholesale.
Lucky to live down the road from this delightful place and even luckier Erin allows me to help during the harvest season, I can't tell you how much joy the cultivated beauty of Posie Fields brings to so many.
