Growing Happiness

The heart of Washington and the valley of blossoms.

In the heart of Washington…

Blooming In The Orchard

If you’re feeling blue and want a little adventure, enjoy a drive along the valley of blossoms in the heart of Washington where the river resembles glass and the wispy breeze lingers. Down a dirt road, flowers bloom among the old, rustic orchard that was once a family farm and a child’s greatest backyard to climb, roam freely, and imagine what could be. Despite living thousands of miles away, I can still smell the dusty tractors that kicked up dirt while hauling apple bins down the orchard rows. My childhood felt normal at the time- nearly everyone I knew either grew up on an orchard or had parents that owned small, local businesses. Strange how things have changed, even the little family farm that inspired so many dreams. Replaced with pretty flowers and a budding nursery, gardens grow each spring.
