Scouted the Rose Garden today and it's pretty ugly right now. We are changing the venue to the Old Schick Ostolas Farmstead that is out at Hidden Springs. The drive alone is absolutely gorgeous this time of year - wild flowers and sage are in full bloom in the foothills.
The Farmstead lies on about 1.75 acres of land along Dry Creek next to a modern-day organic farm. It includes a 2-story farmhouse with barns and other outbuildings.
The farmhouse is about 140 years old. The first section was in place by 1868, making it one of the oldest intact houses in Ada County. It is on its original foundation and has not been substantially changed since it was built. It's a wonderful place for painting and the Mercantile is a terrific pub/grill to meet afterwards!
The weather report for Saturday is 59 degrees with possible rain, so dress appropriately. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
