NH Open Doors
November 2 & 3

10 AM to 4 PM

Come visit Petals in the Pines as we take part in NH Open Doors, a statewide event sponsored by NH Made and the League of NH Craftsmen. During this two-day event you can visit artisans where they create their craft. Our farm stand will be open and you can see where we make our leaf stones and host workshops.

We've added new Leaf Stone products this year including Sedum Planters, Lazy Susans and Table Tops, in addition to our already popular Leaf Stone Bird Baths. We have a variety of garden and nature-themed, hand-stamped, and hand-dyed silk scarves. Also, an assortment of adorable fruit & veggie knit hats for toddlers. There are gourds and corn stalks available for fall decorating too.

We'll be serving refreshments and you can roast a marshmallow over the campfire while you're here. Stroll the grounds and check out the new pavilion we built this year. It's home to our "Indian Paintbrush Nature Art Area" and where we host garden/nature themed birthday parties. Kids can build a fairy house or create something in Sand City.
There is something here for everyone!

There are 12 other artisans in Canterbury participating as well. Visit the NH Open Doors web site for a map of the Canterbury artisans on the tour and for artisans in your area. We hope you can stop in here for a visit!

Our self-service Farm Stand is open this fall!
We're open daily from 9-6. Although our flowers are done for the season our farm stand remains open. Gourds and cornstalks are available for fall decorating. The stand is stocked with our Leaf Stone Bird Baths, Sedum Planters and Lazy Susans.  We also have fruit and veggie knit hats for toddlers (garlic, apple, pumpkin and more . . . ), plus our garden- and nature-themed hand-stamped and dyed silk scarves and neckties.

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.
