When it's too cold and wet to work in the garden and you're longing for spring, what is a gardener to do?
Why, put on a thick coat and visit your favorite nursery, of course!
And so it was that Jane and I headed for Christianson's Nursery.
If that isn't the world's best nursery they have me fooled.
Sometimes I go just to sketch the watering cans.
But I always walk away with something for the garden.
This time it was blueberries, currants, and jostaberries (a cross between gooseberry and currant), all bare root, and sweet pea seeds.
I wanted English daisies, too, but forgot them.
That's a legitimate reason to go back soon, don't you agree?
Tucked between plants and greenhouses you'll find Primrose, their wonderful shop for all things vintage garden.
I practically swoon every time I go in.
Right now I am dying for one of those spades with the split wood handles.
Too spendy for me, but I can dream!
