Ask anyone who knows me – I love pumpkins. I was at Sugartown Strawberries yesterday….so I photographed what else? PUMPKINS. Rows and rows of pumpkins, dozens and dozens of pumpkins piled in a jumble of orange. They tell me hay rides start next weekend! Sugartown Strawberries is located at 650 Sugartown Road Malvern, Pennsylvania 19355. Their phone number is (610) 613-0525 and you can find them on the web and on Facebook.
And on your way back and forth next weekend, also don’t forget to check out the fall fun at Woodlawn Landscaping & Nursery on Paoli Pike (they are right there at the intersection of Paoli Pike and Sugartown Road).
In advance of a photography gig I was checking out what I had on some old chips, and came across photos of one of my favorite things: Sugartown Strawberries. Have you been to Sugartown Strawberries? Met Farmer Bob? What are you waiting for?
Sugartown Strawberries kept me in some awesome veggies and things this past summer and fall. They also do these farm table dinners in the fall along with hayrides, and they have a little country store. I wasn’t able to attend any of the farm table dinners in 2011 and hope to change that in 2012 as they looked pretty awesome.
As much as I tote my camera, almost every time I went to Sugartown Strawberries this past summer and fall I almost always forgot my camera. I plan to remedy that soon because I love the property – it’s very cool much like the owner. It is located at 650 Sugartown Road in Malvern.
Before I get onto the second part of this post, I wanted to take the time to thank all of you have discovered my latest blog project and read the posts. I also figure I must be gaining in site visits as attempts at spamming have increased dramatically.
Now to part 2. A few years ago, before it came down, I started photographing Addison Mizner’s La Ronda in Bryn Mawr. It was the castle of our childhoods along the Main Line. As a matter of fact I know a woman who once called it home when I was little. I never played in it’s cavernous front hall, but was always fascinated by it.
Somehow as the decades pased, La Ronda survived. Until a few years ago when the last owner of the house while it stood decided to sell it to a man whose heart’s desire was to tear it down. And tear it down he did. The bones of the mansion were picked over via salvage and bits and pieces are still being sold today.
