Garden Centre Visit

Yesterday, Mum and I went to a local Garden Centre. I wanted to have a look at some of the gift ideas they had there and, as they have a nice little coffee shop, it seemed like a good idea to go for a coffee/tea while we were there ;o)

 We sat out on the verandah and had coffee/tea and fruit scones in the sunshine. There was a bit of a breeze but it was still pleasant enough to sit out.
 You have to walk past some of the displays on the way to/from the coffee shop and the autumn colours on this bench caught my eye.
 The elephants in the garden have been there since Emily was a toddler .
 They had a display of colourful pots which was quite bright.
 These bird cages were beautiful and reasonably priced but I don't know where I'd put one in our house.
 Mum's wreath is made the same as this one but a circle - very pretty.
 I liked these trees that were on display.
 Perhaps the sheep would like to be part of a nativity scene?
 And before we ended up spending too much, it was time to leave :)


  1. Some nice festive ideas there,Rhona....really like those bird cages.

  2. How cool that the teaset matches your mum's cardi!

  3. Oooh! Just my kind of place!

  4. Looks lovely! Those birdcages are gorgeous - though I'd have nowhere to put one either lol...

  5. Great pictures, Rhona. I love the one of your mom at the table. :o) And those little sheep are just the cutest things!!! xo
