Yesterday a friend and I visited two garden nurseries in Atlanta: The Family Tree Garden Center and Grower’s Outlet. I didn’t buy any flowers but I came very close to purchasing some hydrangeas at Grower’s Outlet. If I didn’t already have a gazillion boxwood shrubs to plant (and I just bought 5 more yesterday!) I would have purchased some hydrangeas.
I took a few photos while inside The Family Tree Garden Center. Loved this planter they have hanging on their outside wall. It was huge! I meant to look for it once inside, but then forgot because there was so much else to see.
They had a beautiful display of Botanic Garden dishware, a beautiful pattern by Portmeirion.
Remember the basket I created for my front door one fall? (See that post here: Fall Basket for Front Door)I found the basket while out antiquing one day.
They had some that were very similar…see them there on the right.
They had so many funny signs all around the store. Loved this one! hee, hee
The only thing I purchased that day was this Garden/Vegetable Tiller. It was so beautifully well made and it will be perfect for planting annuals. I love the sharp blade on one side for slicing through pesky roots and digging out rocks that are in the way.
Update: I just discovered all their tools (including the one I purchased) are available online here: Garden Tools. I’m so glad they are available online because I saw several others I’d like to add to my garden arsenal.
Okay, I’m off to dig a few more holes. I’m so looking forward to sharing the finished landscape once I have everything in! 🙂
Have a wonderful looong weekend! See you tomorrow for Metamorphosis Monday!
