Pink Saturday Visit to the Greenhouse!

Yea! It's Greenhouse Time!
I couldn't wait to share 
this with you guys.
Shhh! I even let Jacob skip school
so that he could come along.
(Don't tell anyone - 
he had a headache afterall.
And with this H1N1 Swine Flu scare 
and all - he probably should stay home- LOL)

This is one of  my all time favorites - 
The heart-shaped Ivy.

This is  (a little bit of) what I brought home...
(How did this picture get out of sequence???)

This is a hint - I'd like this for Mother's Day...

I see Jacob and Grampa are discussing it...
(Hey Guys, I don't see the box being placed on the cart.)

I thought I better post some pink flowers,
afterall it is Pink Saturday!

Don't you just love this cloche 
the cute lily of the valley inside?

How about these????

I thought of Sally and Aaron and DaisyRae and 
all of you Doxie lovers when I saw this - too cute!

More  G. Wolff tera cotta.  
I just love it.

How could you choose?

Did you know that Paula has her own  line
of peanuts and BBQ seasonings?

There's Always Thyme for....

Usually these little purses are made from gum wrappers...
but this is from flower seed packets, etc.

Can you imagine the Tablescape 
with these cute little gems?

Here's another Mother's Day hint - 
This birdbath is awfully cute!
(Hint- Hint!)
I told Jacob that he could make these for me.....

The afternoon ended with this rainbow!

Don't forget to visit
for the list of 
Pink Saturday participants.

Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Happy Pink Saturday! I love greenhouses and this one looks like I can spend an entire day there! Our green houses arent as elaborate, and everything is uber pricey!

Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day and a Happy Pink Saturday!

What a great tour! Thanks for that!

Twice as Nice said...

WOW, I wish we lived near this Greenhouse. So many things I love. I would spend a small fortune. One of those cloches would have ended up in my cart even though I don't need another. The flowers are all beautiful and who can pass up a little Paula Deen?

Debby said...

This is some special greenhouse! How could you choose? I love the bird bath. I enjoyed reading your post. Happy Mother's Day!

Shirley said...

Great post. I just love visiting the local nurseries and the arboretum. Those terrariums and the cloche are beautiful.

Cathy said...

Hi Robyn,

Well I have to say you had me at those gorgeous "terrariums". I have always wanted one, but my house is way to small to put it anywhere, so I always enjoy seeing what other put in theirs. I hope you get what you want for Mother's Day and have a wonderful weekend.

Such a l♥vely post for Pink Saturday. This is the one day of the week when I get to visit some of the best blogs in cyberspace and indulge my passion for pink.

Happy Mother's Day. I wish you all the peace and joy that a day in celebration of motherhood can bring. You don't have to grow a baby in your womb to be a mother...all you have to do is to l♥ve a human being with compassion and tenderness.

I don't remember the name of the place but my SIL took me to an amazing Greenhouse up your way that had a little cafe and the most incredible gift shop. I could have spent all day there.
