Sunflowers growing in Ooltewah, Tennessee

Smith Perry Berry sunflower farm is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with family. If you don’t loose them between the huge sunflower stalks, that is! The sunflowers I picked lasted over two weeks too. Now I need to look up recipes using sunflower seeds.

I can’t wait until fall when the fields are full of pumpkins.

Mountain Oak Tea Room in Ooltewah, Tennessee

When I decided to take my daughters and grand daughters to a Tea Room this was a perfect choice. I didn’t expect to get all the history of the area and the building the tea room is in but it was all very interesting. I did expect to have delightful tea room food and I was not disappointed at all. We did get a surprise with the fanciful tea selections like pink cotton candy and other fun choices. We had such a good time we’ve already made our reservations for their Christmas tea.
