Who Knew A Nursery Could Be So Much Fun!

My sister and I headed over to the Half Moon Bay Nursery today to pick up a bunch of plants for a Garden Faire my sister is hosting next weekend to promote her container gardening business (check out her Facebook site, The Creeping Fig, if you get a chance ~ it’s a beautiful site). I decided to bring my camera, in truth, thinking we might head towards the water for lunch and maybe I could snap a few pictures there but little did I know how much fun I would have roaming around the nursery.

The nursery is one of those old funky wood structures with oodles of character ~ and loads of gorgeous plants and flowers.

A cool old pully that must have served its purpose well in its prime.

I grabbed my camera so I could take some pictures of the colorful flowers….

But it didn’t take me long to get side-tracked by all the wonderful accessories located throughout the grounds…

Snails, Isle 2…I normally wouldn’t approve of snails hanging around my garden, but these guys were cute.

Loads of pots…

And I love these old wooden barrels…

Choose a sprinkler in your favorite color…

But, sorry, don’t bring Fido…

I was almost disappointed when my sister finished her shopping and was ready to go because there were many more items to photograph. A place like this can make yard work fun! Happy gardening!

  1. What a colorful place (figuratively and literally). Being a major plant person I love spending time in garden centers, nurseries, farms, you name it, and they’re all fairly earthy places given the material, but this one looked especially fun and, I don’t know, homespun. Great details you got here (especially like the pulley, the ‘2,’ the dog sign). Very fun set!

  2. I wish I had all of the money I’ve spent in places like this. I suspect I could at the very least, buy a new car. For those of us that love plants, it does get expensive. πŸ™‚

  3. WOW! What an amazing place… I would have been lost in there… I loved it so much. Especially the door photograph fascinated me… Thank you dear Susan, you did great shot. With my love, nia

  4. Gotta remember to take my camera with me EVERYWHERE!!! These are great. How many times have we gone to our local nursery since February? And no camera. What was I thinking? I’ve seen quite a few 365 blogs but yours is the first that really made me understand there are photo opportunities everywhere. Thank you!
