Hi everyone,
I went to a special garden center who sales annuals and perennials.   It was a most beautiful place. The plants were beautifully displayed (not in a long row as in conventional centers), it felt like walking in a beautiful garden with fountains and various artefacts for decoration.

But what was unique was that for 10 days the center also host the paintings of local artists.  The paintings were displayed on easels between plants.   The marriage of those plants and paintings for sale made for a most enjoyable visit/outing.  People were strolling around and taking to each other, no rush shopping there. 

It must have been a lot of work to set it up, but what a wonderful idea!   I wish I had my camera with me.
Cheers, Annie
