Flower Picking at Birchwood Meadows - Edmonton Family Photographer

A few weeks ago we headed out with friends to Birchwood Meadows Flower Farm, just north of Edmonton, to pick some flowers and make a beautiful bouquet.  It was such a fun family activity.

When we got there, we were greeted and given a little tour of the farm and shown how to pick the flowers correctly. They had so many beds full of blooms, and a greenhouse with others. We opted to take a walk through the greenhouse first. The lush greens were so refreshing.

We then ventured outside to see what else they had. The sky was still orange and mokey from the forest fires and it created a bit orange softbox in the sky. It didn't deter from the beautiful flowers though. Townes was drawn to the Snapdragons and instantly declared them his favourite.  My favourite were the beautiful sunflowers.

When we were all done picking our flowers, we had them all wrapped up for the drive home. Townes was proud of his bouquet and wanted to show it off, despite the borderline grumpy look on his face. haha.

On the drive home, I spotted a gorgeous spot that showcased the odd hazy, smokey sky we had that night, so I pulled over and grabbed a few shots of Townes exploring and finding some rocks. It was nice having some one-on-one time with him, as that doesn't happen very often these days.
