Garden Center Excursion


On Sunday, I took my mom to our favourite garden center in the next valley.  Here are some snaps (via iPhone - apologies if they are not perfect!)




Rows of herbs make my heart soar!




Of course I want more of this:



A Heliotrope that came home with me.  It smells amazing!


The garden center also had gorgeous garden stones:


Veggies!


My basket:


And this beauty came home with me too!

Gardens are so full of life, I believe we draw energy from the plants and flowers.

Gorgeous garden shop photos. I love(s) mushrooms (shown) , and gnomes (not shown), and the tree of life plaque (shown). Even photos of gardens and shopping for garden treasures is fun for me.

Thanks for sharing!

The giant stone mushroom was my favorite. Cool stones, too!

I love trips to the garden center. That cement mushroom is awesome. Looks like you got a good haul.

What wonderful photos, Jen!

I wish I could take photos at the garden centers around here, too... It's forbidden, and once I even asked when it was a calm day with just a few customers around. Nope, no chance... *sigh*

Thus I really, really enjoyed you taking us on your garden center tour!

Hugs,
Birgit

Oh, these pictures are fabulous. I can just smell the aroma of the herbs and flowers and feel the warmth of the sun. Thank you for sharing such treasures. I adore that stepping stone!

I want to take a big trip to the nursery soon but I keep waiting for our sun to arrive. :( I love looking at your plants and can almost smell them in the photos! Of course most of them don't smell but you get the idea. :)
