    These came home with us...the red will go to Michigan with my Aunt. I hope i'll be able to get back to this nursery soon. They are attending a very large show in March and are supposed to be really loaded with plants. It was so nice to get to one of my nurserys. I'd missed getting out.

    Wow Connie! I bet that was an enjoyable outing! Do you think this nursery would object if I showed up with my sleeping bag and moved in for a while? Thanks for all the gorgeous photos--I started out choosing favorites and then lost track, there were so many.

    Actually...I said I was moving in and Mike told me the greenhouse roof leaks or they could turn it into a bed and breakfast with all the visitors that wanted to stay. lol When you go to this place, it looks small, but it takes forever to get all the way through. And just when you think you've seen it all, there are three Pergola's they have huge one's hanging from (during summer) and a smaller greenhouse that is usually closed off. They are great.

    I am drooling on my laptop! Thanks for the gorgeous pictures. I've found that the week before Valentines Day is a good time to browse and the week after (if you can restrain yourself) is a great time for some good deals.

    Thanks again!
