Nanci’s family, who I work with, own a Peony farm outside of Burlington. I HAD to go visit it and see this fantastical sounding place. So I hit the road and stayed in Raleigh with my friend Becca and then we took off to find this Peony farm. We kept venturing into this beautiful country land and I wanted to buy the first farm house I saw! I’ve written an article for Our State Magazine on this farm and I couldn’t wait to put pictures with my words! Nanci’s dad and sister, Heather, harvest the flowers each year in May with help from some faithful women who also help them harvest. It was quite a beautiful place and we found it hard to leave. Our little new friends also made it hard for us to leave.

Nanci’s dad’s farm house at the top of the hill! Reminds me of Michael’s grandparent’s house.
