Summer flowers at Mercier Orchards, Blue Ridge, Georgia.Mercier Orchards in Blue Ridge, Georgia, has been in business in the North Georgia Mountains since 1943.

Their ciders and you-pick-em seasonal fruits draw customers from near and far, so of course there has to be some seasonal decoration.

Here’s a basket of summer flowers that greeted your Road Trips Gardener on a visit back in 2007 (but, yes, they’re still around in 2022).

Mercier Orchards hosts U-Pick Events and Tractor Tours (check website for scheduling).

In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, there’s a large variety of jams, jellies, preserves, apple butter, and bakery items. Find out what’s in season here.

My favorite purchase? Peach cider (a Georgia tradition).
