Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Visiting Pine Creek Nursery

Retruning from the Fronderosa Frolic, we had time to zip through Pine Creek Nursery which is just off the highway.

The folks at this nursery are very friendly and helpful. Even the inside of the store says Welcome! Come on in and sit a spell. Coffee and cookies anyone?

 Work of a local potter.
Sweet bird nests.

Love the rusty metal flowers!

In additon to a large tree area, shrub area and houses filled with perennials & small woody material, there are these beautiful mixed displays.

 What a great way to see plant combinations.
 Beautiful!




 I've got a major crush on this bench but it probably wouldn't fit in the car. Well, maybe if the car didn't need a driver...
 So many beautiful plants and so much cool stuff!  Don't miss this nursery if you are ever in the area!
Have a seat by this lovely and calming water feature.  You are welcome to enjoy lunch  in this delightful setting.

 Unbeknownst to me, a frog had been sunning himself on the warm rocks and as I walked past, he yelled at me for disturbing him and jumped into the water.

Unfoutunately, it was time for us to jump back into the car and speed toward home.

    1. Well... I already have more plants than I know what to do with and the big things I fell in love with wouldn't fit in the car unless one of us walked home.

    1. The sunflowers are beautiful as was everything at this nursery! They might even package one up and send it to you for a fee. Call and see.
