Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

A great way to fill in some time

I happened to have my camera with me when I paid a visit to my favorite garden center, Bayview Farm & Garden. To see more of the garden center, click on the video when you visit their site.

I love the little rustic building, and if I could afford it, I would have a larger version built for my garden.

The main entrance into the nursery.

I would also like to have a dozen or so of these ceramic pots.

Just love the shape of this tree as it leans gracefully over.

A gorgeous selection of plants in a large planter.

I hope you enjoyed seeing a small part of my favorite garden center.

Hey Keewee,
Thanks for the wonderful window shopping at the garden center. I love the garden centers and farmers markets in the fall, so many pretty, rich, vibrant colors. It is my favorite season.I also know I will have a "rest" period coming up!
Lucky you for getting to visit here!

Hi Keewee. Just discovered your delightful blog and thought I'd say hi to a neighbor... OR is close enough. ;) Love your Whidbey... we visited a short time last fall during a trip to the Hoh.

I would just love browsing through that garden center. That tree is fascinating. When I get in a large garden center I find myself browsing for far to long.It is just so fun though.

Oh Jennifer~~ It looks like you sparked a healthy dose of plant lust in your readers--me included. What a fabulous nursery. Did you buy anything?
