Bon jour Mes Amis!
Hubby and I just returned from a week of camping in our motor home in northern Michigan. We had such a great time, and Katie loved it too! I neglected to take any photos, other than a visit we took to a beautiful garden center that's just a few miles from the campground we stayed at.
Not only do they have some gorgeous plants and flowers in their huge green houses, but they have really neat gift shops, a cute little cafe, and lots of display gardens to enjoy and inspire.
Isn't this angel serene looking among the blooms?
I wish you could have seen the hydrangeas, they were stunning! I am in love with these gorgeous blue ones!
I thought this was the neatest table, in the patio outside of the cafe.
Notice the center? They built a "trough" and planted it with herbs. How fun!
Hubby and I split a really yummy sandwich for lunch on the patio.
What a great setting for the cafe.
I was loving all of the water features. I would love to have one of these fountains at home! The sound of trickling water is so soothing, I think.
This pine topiary was so neat, and must have been over 6 feet tall.
Another water feature, below.
Just look at this darling little garden fairy village!
The stone like homes were made of concrete, and were just the cutest ever!
It'snot showing up well in the photo, but below is a cute little bike planter. I love the metal sunflower stake next to it!
I was drooling over the cosmos, spider flowers, and purple salvia!
This cute little metal fence featured pretty hibiscus at the top.
This clematis was even prettier in person than my photo could capture.
How about this friendly looking squirrel planter?!
I love lavender!
Also on the property is this cute little blue guest cottage that you can rent out.
In front was the biggest hosta plant I've ever seen! It's much bigger than it looks here, it came nearly to my chest, and must have been almost 8 feel across!
I loved this pretty statue, below.
Notice the sign, hanging above moi?
It truly was a stress free environment!
And let me tell you, it was so needed! With our house on the market for nearly 2 months, the stress of not knowing when, if or where we will be moving, along with other life challenges, really got the best of me, in all honesty.
It was just so good to veg out and decompress on our camping trip.
Another pretty fountain.
Pretty window boxes greeted you as you walked in the front door of the main greenhouse. I love the vibrant colors of these pretty orange begonias.
And I thought this window box was so cute with the gnomes! Notice the gazing balls inside?
Here is a view of the outside. It's much larger than I could get in one shot!
Thanks for joining me on my little tour, hope you have a great weekend!
