Taking a different way home today, I noticed a sign saying Plants for Sale. I was already passed but luckily I trusted my intuition and went around the block. What seemed to be a couple of tables of plants on the footpath turned out to be a little nursery in a front yard. My goodness what a delight.
STOP!!! This looks good. All images by writer.
At first glance it looks like someone's much loved front garden ... but it is all pots and all for sale.
Eric in his fabulous front garden.
The owner Eric obviously has a green thumb. There is a huge range of plants at very reasonable prices and the quality is fabulous. There were fruit trees, herbs, bushes and trees. The range of daisies and pansies was stunning. Everything is lush and healthy.
I want them all.
Eric is very helpful about what to buy and where to plant it. He even pulls the weeds out of the pot before he hands it over. Such service.
Healthy herbs at healthy prices.
I didn't have much money on me so I couldn't buy the magnificent camellia for only $10. I can't wait to go back.
Isn't it magnificent?
This is my $15.50 worth. I was very happy with my purchases and will return.
