Remember When I Used to Plug Local Businesses?

As the oomph to blog daily continues to elude me, I interrupt my non-blogging days for what I hope will be a decent Throwback Thursday Post. I only hope my Tablet and Media Library will cooperate.

Sing it, Phil!

This is throwing back only to last December, and to a time when I was making more posts about authentic Mohawk Valley Adventures. It is, in case you did not recognize it, local musician Phil Arcuri rocking out at Fratello’s Pizzeria in Frankfort, NY. We do still occasionally indulge in our Wednesday Night Thing.

So pretty!

This picture was taken a little longer ago, but Houle Flower Farm in Little Falls, NY may be looking similar these days. I must take a drive out and check.

Good dawg!

Ooh, here’s another local business I might like to go to again, the Saalty Dawg Saloon in Ilion, NY.

Will I go to these places again soon? More importantly, will I begin blogging about them on a daily basis? Will I figure out the WordPress upgrade and finally start posting new pictures again? For the answers to these and other questions of varying interest and importance, stay tuned to Mohawk Valley Girl. That’s me still, I hope.

My Beautiful Bouquet

I love flowers.  To me they are a never-failing source of beauty and joy.  I found a lovely source of such beauty and joy at House Flower Farm in Little Falls.

I can’t remember if it was I Spy CNY or My Little Falls who shared Houle Flower Farm on Facebook, but right away I said, “Ooh!”  Pro tip:  Facebook is a great source for finding local businesses to try.

So rustic!

Houle offers bouquets at a self-serve hut outside their farm on the corner of Rt. 170 and Davis Road.  Driving from Herkimer, Google sent me out Rt. 28 and West End Road, which is a lovely rural drive.  I pulled in to find one bouquet left to purchase.  Phew!

Pro tip: go early for the best selection!

I loved that the bouquet was in a mason jar.  I was especially happy when it fit right into my cup holder for the return drive.  This time I took Rt. 170 into Little Falls.  Being me, I was soon wondering if I had chosen the right direction.  I confess to yelling, “Yes!” and making a fist pump when I realized I had.

My lovely bouquet was soon gracing my mantle.  Different flowers will be available, depending on what is in season, so I look forward to treating myself to more beauty and joy.  Houle also offers flowers by the bucket for special occasions and events.  You can contact them at houleflowerfarm@gmail.com.

So pretty!

The hut is located at 2115 Davis Rd., in Little Falls.  They are open Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. till Sold Out.  You can check their Facebook page to see if they are sold out.  You can also see some lovely photos there, so I highly recommend Liking their page!  For more information, you can visit their website at http://www.houleflowerfarm.com/
