By the way it was pretty hot out. This poor doggie in his heavy fur coat managed to find the shadiest, dampest spot he could.
They have a fun system at the nursery that helps you locate fragrant plants.
I picked up a younger version of this wide-leaved fern. It's doing just fine with my rather forgetful watering.
This was a pretty nifty Acanthus I'd not seen before. A little too prickly to take home on the plane though. And this giant duck I did not notice until I was leaving the nursery. I must have had my nose stuck down in the plants the whole time.
I need this for my house.
After Cistus we headed over to Joy Creek. We had more time at Joy Creek since we were also having lunch and presentations here. The gardens were lovely. I'm glad I had time to roam.
Of course a lot of the gardens are used as growing grounds for material for propagation.
Kate Walz of Gardening and Gardens perfectly matched one of the fuchsias.
There was lots of drama too (thankfully just by the plants).
I loved this Viburnum. Anyone know which one it is?
The shopping area was over by a neat, big ol' barn.
Next we'll head on over to Old Germantown Gardens and then end the day at Westwind Farm Studio. See you soon.
