I love flowers and veggies, but I'm a gardener only in the loosest terms. Mr. Handsome-and-Handy has been bitten by the gardening bug lately, though, and he prepped some planters and wanted me to do a little shopping.
Hmm. Flowers? Shopping? I'm so there. And I knew just the place for it. I think I'll just let the photos do the rest of the talking....
|Here's the place! It's like a botanical garden, but everything is for sale!|
|This is a small section out front - perennials and roses|
|I thought of Lori when I saw these!|
|I was really tempted to buy this peony, but I've never grown them, $32.50 is kind of an expensive experiment to try on the gopher-and-snail farm that is our garden.|
|Here's the inside! I loved all the hanging baskets.|
|Did it take a lot of patience to set out all of these impatiens?|
|I loved this garden-in-a-pot! (Why do mine never look like that?!)|
|A whole section of just lavenders!|
|Big, fluffy hydrangeas|
|Mmmm, freesias! So fragrant! I almost bought that one in the foreground.|
|They fit all this in one container! ($140?!? I'll pass.)|
|A quiet corner of the nursery grounds. At least the view is free!|
|This is what "restraint" looks like.|
