My blogging buddy Anna has introduced me to the charming garden store where she now works. Let me direct your attention to the color of her sweater.
As you can see, Anna is already making her presence known with the repainting of this wall in her signature color.
Almost anything looks great against a background of this muted, sophisticated purple.
A collection of blue pots sets off fiery stems and blue-green spiky plants to perfection. I wanted to bring the whole display home with me (sadly, not in the budget).
This table top featured red pots…equally enticing.
It’s still early in the season, but already the yard is filling up with interesting plants.
Let’s move indoors. On this rainy day, the sound of the rain on the glass made shelter feel all the cozier. What a delightful space.
Engaging all the senses, there were arrangements of plants and decorative items on all sides.
These are the folks who make it all happen, and you won’t find a friendlier bunch anywhere.
This mature specimen of weeping Blue Atlas Cedar drapes over the fence near the parking area. I consider this emerging garden center a real find. To find it yourself, go to 5645 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Portland OR 97225. If you are coming from Portland, it is just past Six Corners, where there is a New Seasons Market, or call 503 292 9121 for directions.
