Exploring a Tulip Farm while #socialdistancing

Exploring a Tulip Farm while #socialdistancing

We have been stuck inside recently due to COVID-19 and needed to get some fresh air and see some beauty. So, what did we do?

We hit up a Virginia tulip farm – social distancing style.

[We know that some people will disagree with visiting a tulip farm during this time but, we made sure to take all the precautions we could within limits we felt comfortable with.]

Burnside Farms in Virginia decided to open up blocks of time for people to come and visit while respecting the present social distancing guidelines suggested by the CDC. They also decided to limit the number of guests onto the farm at any given time.

It was like we were the only ones there.

Everyone was spread out and just enjoying their family time. It was perfect. The boys got to cut some tulips and just run around outside. There is something different about just getting a new view that helps break up the same routine. The big change for us recently has been the lack of preschool and inability to take advantage of certain toddler activities. Mathew works from home and I am a stay-at-home mom so we are home all the time as it was before COVID-19.

I had this visit to Burnside Farms on my list since we first moved to Virginia because I am obsessed with flowers. When we lived in Arizona, we would always check out Carlsbad Flower Fields however, that was completely out of reach this season. Burnside Farms was great. They were very organized, extremely clean and really think of the entire family when creating events. I look forward to attending next year!
