What a wonderful time I spent last weekend at the Greenstreet Gardens Fall Festival. Back in my home country of Ireland we refer to fall as autumn, and we don’t celebrate it on such a big scale like here in America. So I was super excited to experience my first ‘American Fall’ festival in the Annapolis area.
Greenstreet Gardens is a huge garden center situated in Lothian only 18 miles from Annapolis. On the way there, I enjoyed the lovely scenic drive with lots of corn fields and horses frolicking in the many large fields in the countryside location. The sun was splitting the trees when we arrived at the festival even though it was a bit nippy with a chill in the air, which only added to that fall feeling.
I entered through the main entrance of the garden center, which led directly to the back where all the fall fun begins. One of the first sights I spotted was a huge pumpkin patch, probably the largest one I have ever seen in my life. It was spectacular, with pumpkins of every size, shape and shade of orange.
Right beside the pumpkin patch you can have your face painted, ride on the cow train up and down the hills, have some light refreshments, and watch the goats and miniature ponies graze beside you. You can also purchase some animal food and hand-feed the farm animals here. Read More
