Blooming Hill is a tiny “farmlet” owned by Cyndie and Peter Rinek and situated on four acres in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge in Western Loudoun County, Northern Virginia. It is not only our business but also our home where we welcome visitors to peruse and enjoy our garden gift shop and, most especially, our gardens that highlight our collection of over 600 lavender plants in almost fifty different varieties lovingly tended throughout the property.
While Cyndie’s background stems from writing and a career in retail management, her love for gardening and especially lavender has blossomed over the last twenty years, and has led her down the garden path along with Peter, a registered Landscape Architect/Planner, who has been practicing for almost thirty years. Together, we have cultivated a garden and craft business that is uniquely us--selling our crafts, plants and artwork at local garden fairs and craft shows for nearly as long.
Although we have lived here at Blooming Hill since 1994, our shop, opened in April 2010, offers home grown and gathered lavender products as well as handmade natural wreaths, unique plants and everlastings, USA made statuary along with garden décor collected especially for the garden enthusiast. Our colonial home, petite English inspired greenhouse and country garden shop were all built by Peter, also an accomplished artist, and reflect our modern country style where we love to share our gardens and gardening knowledge.
Blooming Hill is open Fridays and Saturdays, 10am until 5pm, mid-April through mid-December and other days by appointment or request. It is the perfect destination for all types of garden enthusiasts and their friends ranging from an individual to garden clubs and groups.
