Do You Need A Pick Me Up

 Do you need a pick me up right around this time of year?
Put on a mask and visit your local garden center.
A good part of this center is outdoors and if you go on a weekday it won't be crowded.
- COVID acceptable -
It brings me so much joy to walk among the flowers, it will do the same for you.
This place is my favorite, 
it is where I buy all of my flowers and the one place I always visit for all that my garden needs.
It is also the place I visit for a pretty vase of flowers and a "pick me up" during the long winter months,
it is always colorful here.

Are you diggin' those moose?

I chatted with one of the employees, explaining to her why I was taking pictures.
That I have spoken to Leslie the owner and she told me I could take pictures any time I wanted to.
I mentioned to her that everything looked so beautiful...
her reply "everything is so picked over, 
we are out of so much, I wish you had taken your pictures a few weeks ago".
I was surprised, it all looked so pretty to me!

Their "grab & go" bouquets are always the best!

- there are always flowers for those who want to see them -


  1. That's a really pretty shop. I've done that too. We have a ritzy lawn and garden store here in K.C. I've gone just to "get out" and be around space and pretty plants, hoping I wouldn't buy anything. I always buy something I "didn't know I needed." Linda in Kansas

    1. our covid numbers are up very high in new jersey, i'm not sure what winter will be like. we need to keep this on our list of "safe places" to get out and walk around!!

  2. It really does look fantastic! I want a poinsettia...but I haven't been shopping. At least I have a fake on that looks nice. holiday hugs!

  3. The glorious Christmas colours! That place is a real pick-me-up.

  4. I can hardly imagine that it could be even more beautiful! I agree that Garden Centers and nurseries are happy places. I am often pleasantly surprised that they don't charge me admission or a photographers fee because I don't buy much. any more.

  5. A fantastic place where it's possible to enjoy the Christmas atmosphere!!! All the best.

  6. A beautiful shop. I am delighted with it. All flowers are of the best quality. I'm not surprised or surprised that you are their regular customer.

  7. I think garden centres are a joy to visit at any time of year, and can be especially cheery at Christmas :)
    Your photographs are lovely Debbie, thank you.

    All the best Jan

  8. It is a pretty garden center, love the poinsettias and the moose. Lovely photos! Take care, enjoy your day!

  9. Looks so beautiful, I am surprised she said it was picked over, they do a wonderful job putting it all together, lovely decorating!

  10. Love all the red! I finally got Christmas lights up yesterday and had several strands set to flash red/white. It's nice they don't mind you taking photos!

  11. What a good idea for a pick me up and i could use it. I will have to explore and see what we have here. I loved all the Christmas decorations; the photos were awesome.
    Blessings and hugs!
