Todd's Nursery is not far from where I live, about the same distance from my home as several other plant places that I frequent but because I don't pass it on a regular basis, I go far to seldom. Everytime I go to Todd's I swear that my visits will be more regular as this is a wonderful place. This fall, I visited because the nursery is just up the road from Scholz Pumpkin Patch that I posted about here. For some reason I lost track of the pictues and didn't come across them until recently. Please tell me that I'm not the only one this absent minded. It was a beautiful warm and dry autumn day. Remember that time just a couple of months ago? Seems like forever.Todd's so plan on spending some time wandering around all the great plants and water features so numerous that they'll get their own post tomorrow.
I love a parking lot that looks like this!
I was tempted by this beautiful phormium that greeted me as soon as I got out of my car.
Great color combination! I wish I could keep blue sprce alive but they seem to resent being smothered by big leaves all summer with the expectation that with no light or air circulation for the summer, they'll look like these in the winter. Oops.
Orange. Remember orange? Wasn't it grand?
If I ever had a bigger garden, a Sourwood tree (or grove) would be on my list!
Oh my, a yucca sale too!
The combination of red and purple here is surprisingly yummy!
Why does this make me think of Scott at Rhone Street Gardens?
A small part of the nice fern selection.
Peony foliage getting into the swing of things.
Here's part of the long creek/river that runs around the back part of the nursery.
These happy sepervivums are part of one of those newfangled green roof garden things.
Pretty cool huh? Don't know how long the building willl remain standing but for now the roof is fun.
Lichen covered branches glow when the winter rain revitalizes them and the low winter sun shines on them. Winter sun seems like an oxymoron right now but I know that it will happen - sometime. For five minutes.
Interesting surprises like patches of these fresh looking glads are to be found all over the garden.
Glorious bark of a Prunus.
And another. Gorgeous!
Labeled Japanese Black Pine, this little tree had wonderful and weird globs of cones.
Bananas were 75% off, what a deal!
Whistful? Sad? Tired of having most of her head covered with leaves?
Never fear, there is still a lot of bamboo on the property!
And some for you to take home if you wish.
From Todd's website, it looks like the nursery is full of Christmas trees right now. I can't wait to go back in spring!
