Nursery Visit


Besides the slow work in the backyard, we have several projects going on. I still don't have photos of my two restored windows,  because the camera contains some musical recordings from my daughter's recent event that need downloading. But since one of the current projects involves plants, I've spent a couple of late afternoons visiting nurseries. This one is called Whitfill. Over the years of living in this area, I've been to this nursery a number of times, yet some how I managed to walk by this shop on the premises. These photos were taken with a phone.










There is a nice mixture of old and new items.










The shop is in the original owner's adobe home, and the floors are concrete. 







The screen is a clever use of old doors.









This is a trellised area outside the original home.
The shop and the nursery itself are so charming, and whoever does the displays has a good eye.
I could spend hours looking around this place.







And a few photos from around the home:
 A week or so ago, there were some exhausted roses from Valentine's Day.








We also had a little fun with her crown for Mardi Gras.

  1. What a wonderful place. Great eye for decorating there. Really love the chandy. I mean really. I just wish I lived in a house with high ceilings.

  3. There are several nurseries around here that have the shop filled with home and garden decor and it takes plant shopping to another level of fun. Your phone took great photos and that shop has some great stuff. Have a good day!

    1. How neat! I've only been to one other nursery that had a shop and that was in California, and that was years ago.

  4. Such prettiness. Our local plant shop has a similar but smaller area and I find it hard to keep away!

  15. What a beautiful Nursery. I went to the Nursery yesterday too, but mine was one off of a country road out on the farm with gravel underfoot. I bought lots of flowers that I planted in our many clay pots...a potiere garden.We are having beautiful weather that feels like Spring so it is difficult to resist buying vegetables for our potager. But in our area it is best to wait a few more weeks before planting.

  17. The Whitfill nursery we had down here closed years ago and there just isn't any place besides HD, Lowes, Walmart to get plants! I may need to make a trip up to Scottsdale to visit your place! And that little store is great! I'm sure I'd love to visit there! Have a super weekend!! Blessings, Cindy

  20. I really enjoyed seeing photos of the very interesting nursery/retail store you went to. Unique mix of so many wonderful pieces. I probably like everyone else has said spent hours there. I envy you with planting now, we are locked into winter's arctic air. Always love to see pictures of your beautiful home. Love the crown, bird is fun.

  21. I love shops like this one and it seems they are so well decorated and posed you can never see everything at one walk through, you have to walk through it again, and yes, I will always find more cool stuff I missed the first time through !

  25. What lovely surroundings, Susan, so serene and perfectly complementary to the home's existing architectural features. I can see how some of these items would be completely at home in your own beautiful spaces.
