Leslie at a Creative Mint is a constant inspiration to me since I discovered her site over a year ago in a class we both took. Recently she made a trip to Rose Story Farm in Carpinteria, CA and shared it in her own personal style on her blog.
Rose Story Farm has been featured in MSL, WSJ, Oprah, Veranda….blah blah blah….but I never had a huge urge to go until I saw Leslie’s spread…
Isn’t this all very enticing?
Apparently this was one of Julia’s favorite places… which ads an extra level of intrigue…Julia is one of my heroes.
Rose Story Farm started in 1998, when owner Danielle Hahn and her family decided to try growing 1000 rose bushes on a half acre of their lemon and avocado farm. Now they grow 18,000 rose bushes, with over 120 varieties on 15 acres. You can take a tour, have lunch, even stay in a rose garden surrounded cottage.
