A visit to New Garden...

Since my own garden is so grey and desolate right now, I went to my favorite local nursery, New Garden, to see what might be going on.

It wasn’t quite in hibernation, but almost. There weren’t as many plants as usual because preparations were being made for spring. In the greenhouse, boxes were being unloaded and new displays of accessories were being designed.

I love these little benches.

New Garden sells the most beautiful potted arrangements. Every time I go in there, I admire them.

As I went outside, many of the perennials were still under wraps to protect them from the cold. But there was this collection of pots that caught my eye.

(Imagine celestial music playing as I discover the pots.)

Could it be because there were blue ones? Or was it the 75% off sign?

Yes, one came home with me. I’ll probably put it in my seating area under the oak. You know, the one I don’t have yet; the one I am obsessed with.

Later in my visit, they were uncovering the plants as the days and nights will be getting a little warmer now. That is when I discovered my next treasure.

I have wanted to grow black mondo grass for some time now and was thrilled to find that it, too, was 75% off. Maybe I will grow it, along with Creeping Jenny, in my new pot.

Have a beautiful day!
