A new page popped up on Facebook this week and I was intrigued. There is a new ‘pick your own flowers’ place on the river, just off Robert Henderson Road. I talked three friends into going with me today and we discovered the most charming little place on the river. Put on your garden shoes and come along with us to Rivers and Roots in Sevierville.
I went onto the Rivers and Roots Facebook page to find a map and hours. The navegation starts at National Fitness Center because that is where I was when I thought to look it up online. I had never noticed this road along the river before. Turn right before the bridge. https://www.facebook.com/riversandroots/
It was fun to explore to little River Road!
Keep driving down River Road until you see this sign. Park in a dry area and walk on the wood chips avenue to the flowers. Or you could drive on the woods chips up to the main area.
Walk up to the green house area. There are flowers inside, and outside, beyond view.
We were met by the owners, Sydney and Titus. They welcomed us and explained how things work. It has only been open 2 days!
Prices are really good and you can cut a lot to fit a small bucket. My friends got to work while I took pictures. We all love flowers so excitement was in the air!
We started outside the greenhouse because the flowers were beckoning us.
Janice looks beautiful amidst the daffodils.
Anita stands by the greenhouse area for the flowers. I need to find out what that is called!
It was just too beautiful for words!
It was a feast for the eyes under the canopy.
Music was playing from the small building. As I was standing there, a song resonated with me and that exact moment. Good one! Click the link for a live shot—and to hear the song. My new favorite song.
An attraction to Rivers and Roots is not just found in the lovely flowers; it is also the highly photographable things on the property. I found them to be irresistible and was drawn to several areas.
But in the end, the flowers are the main attraction to Rivers and Roots. Amazing!
Pick your own flowers and pay at the little stand.
Elaine created the perfect nosegay. Bet you haven’t heard that word in a while! But it came to mind for this picture.
Sydney and Titus bid us farewell. We will see them again soon!
We headed back to the car. Good friends, a good place, and a good day.
Anita had to head out ahead of us. Follow the River Road back to Robert Henderson Road and you are back in town. It is only a hop, skip, and a jump away when you are out and about in Sevierville.
This is truly a special place. Wear old shoes or garden shoes and plan to stay a while. Come by and see the beauty at Rivers and Roots in Sevierville. So far, it is my favorite place of the year. You will like it too!
