Iris Farms, on the outskirts of Traverse City, is a beautiful, six acre farm with more than 1000 different varieties of hybrid irises that visitors can order for their home gardens, or if you visit later in the season, they also offer u-Pick for irises, and sell handed bouquets. This gorgeous, family owned farm is a must-see when exploring Northern Michigan.
Summer is drawing to a close, and fall is nearly here. To make the most of this transitional period, before it becomes too cold, we’ve been trying to spend as much time as possible outside, enjoying the last few warm days here in Michigan. The leaves are already beginning to change colors, and the sun is setting sooner, so I wanted to squeeze in one last visit to a flower field before the end of the season and spend a day picking sunflowers. We took a trip to DeBucks Flower Farm, where they also have a corn maze, hay rides, and other fall themed activities, to pick some gorgeous Sunflowers, cosmos, zinnias, lavender, and other fall flowers.
