Rice Greenhouses - Selected Photos

A couple days ago, I spent a half hour browsing through Rice Greenhouses in Bedminster Township (postal address - Perkasie), Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Two of my brothers own and operate the business. I had my camera with me and so took pictures of some of their Easter and Spring flowers.


Geraniums




Gloxinia



Petunia



Strawflower

I always thought the best plants were those which could be eaten. It would be great if the prettiest flowers were also the tasiest!

Oh, this makes me feel like running out to the local garden centre and buying everything they have. Lovely flowers! Your brothers can be proud of their work.

BTW, Tim, if you wanted to see more views like the ones I posted on my blog, you can go tothis site. There are great hiking trails all around the coastal mountains and in the rest of British Columbia as well. Click on the Black Tusk/Garibaldi Provincial Park photo links to see some great scenery.

Interesting thought, san nakji. But I don't think you would want to taste these flowers though some of them do smell extremely good.

Thanks, christina. My brothers do raise quality flowers. Their main advertisement has been word of mouth by their customers. And christina, I checked out the site you recommended. It just confirmed my desire to some day visit there. Thanks.

Thanks, andrea. I think there are many of us who can't wait for spring to be here full force.

Welcome, taradharma. I'm glad you're finding it enjoyable.

These flowers are so perfect, and your brothers are lucky to be able to work around such beauty all the time! It seems Americans pay more attention to landscaping these days and in my new neighborhood there are really great gardens (mostly pansies and flowering spring bulbs).

Thanks, crystal. I like it when people beautify their homes with flowers and other plants. It brightens up the neighborhood.

I'll take one of each please! I tend to bring home truckloads of plants when I visit greenhouses (even though most become deer-food). Thanks for the nice words on my blog, I'll definitely visit again :)

Thanks, cindy, for stopping by. Glad you enjoyed browsing through my blog. Nature is so beautiful.

AHA ! I've search and found your brother's green house. I'll put it as favorite on my garden blog later...when it will have no more problems with Blogger! I posted a message this morning and since that moment cergipontin is spraid. So just now, I'm feeling uneasy. I knew that your brother has such a job, because of the message about the gold fishes. Water-hyacinths were inside.
