Poor thing...she's going to miss out on all the fun!!
Once you step inside our shop and greenhouse you'll completely forget about being dressed
in winter gear...and we're moving lunch and refreshments to benefit the Crisis Center
into the warm indoors!!
Don't forget to leave a bid on this gorgeous vintage stove...the entire sale price will be donated
to the Crisis Center and it would make a great addition to your outdoor kitchen!!
Lots of new plants and treasures!!  We'll have Mother Nature...and your garden...
smiling again soon!!

Working With Mother Nature...

We greet each growing season knowing it will be filled with joys...
and challenges, too!!
One of this year's challenges could be persisting drought conditions...
so we have made some wise choices to insure blooms and butterflies!!
Lantana is one of those plants that thrives in the heat and attracts butterflies!!
You are going to love the great collection of plants we have to share with you...
including those unusual plants we all love to show off in our gardens!!
