Petals in the Pines along with many other artists, food producers, and crafters are currently part of a unique holiday shopping experience at Christmas at Clough Tavern Farm. Their 2014 show celebrates the Victorian Era through 5 rooms of their 1777 three-story colonial. Shop an eclectic collection of local NH products: pottery, baskets, edible delights, fiber arts, jewelry, paintings, children's items, decorations, plants, garlic and much more. Pause by the warm wood stove for food samples and mulled cider.

Ladies, if you find something you'd like for yourself, fill out a "Wish List" and leave it with Naomi. Send the man in your life to the "Gentleman's Breakfast and Shopping" on Saturday, Dec. 6th, from 7-9 AM. They can shop for you and enjoy some delicious food too!

Thank you!

Our Roots: In 1992 we bought our home on 5 acres in Canterbury. Our passive solar house was surrounded by pines and hardwood trees amongst outcroppings of beautiful granite ledge. There was very little open space for gardens. In 2000, we purchased an adjoining 3 acres which gave us all kinds of new opportunities. An area behind the house was logged and opened up for gardens. We started with a blank slate, an open space of land, and little by little created a beautiful landscape. Our children were quite young at the time so we started with the Children's Garden which features plants representing the 5 senses of the body.  The Peter Rabbit Garden vegetable beds were established next, and we built two teepees for our kids, on which to grow gourds and morning glories. Since then, we've added 2-3 themed gardens each year. It is truly a labor of love! In 2010 we opened our gardens to the public. We've hosted elementary school groups and garden clubs and we want to share our beautiful landscape with you!

Please contact us at 783-0220. We look forward to seeing you.
