Yesterday was my birthday, so a friend too me to lunch and we went to a little local greenhouse. It was a little gem of a place, hidden in Searsport, Maine. It’s perfectly named ‘Hidden Gardens’.
It was the perfect little greenhouse. It was surrounded by flowerbeds here and there to showcase some of what they sold. The greenhouse/potting shed was super cute. From what we learned, the woman who ran it died last year and her son and husband are keeping it alive. Pardon the cell phone images, I didn’t take my real camera with me to the greenhouse. I promise I will be back again soon and provide you with quality images of the locale.
The plants were very reasonably priced, I picked up loads of stuff for less than I’d pay for 3 perennials at most of the local shops. In my score were two tree peonies, if you know anything about those, they can be super pricey. Here’s what I got:
It was definitely a great way to spend the day, what fun we had! Is there anything better to get for a gardener for her birthday than a trip to a local greenhouse? I think not.
Do you have any little greenhouses like this in your are?Filed under Maine | Comments (2)
