    I was away this past wkd to a fiberglassrv rally near Welland, ON.  On the drive home,  I drove past a very interesting nursery called The Potting Shed.  It just called to me to stop!

    It seemed to specialize in Lilies.  I thought of Gayle……..

    There were hundreds of different lilies….wish you all could have been with me.

    They also had wonderful hostas.  They were beautiful and huge.  You would have loved them.

    And many other beautiful plants

    And this strange assortment…….  :D

    Noreen….aren’t yo happy you stopped?  WOW….what lovely lilies and other flowers as well.  We have a place near here that specializes in hostas and daylilies……looks like this place does as well!

    Tell us….did you purchase anything?

    When we were at Julie’s this past weekend, we also visited a nursery that hybridizes their own day lilies….I also thought of Gayle.

    What a nice stop for you….and thanks for sharing!  Charlene

    Those lilies are beautiful. I bet you are really glad you stopped there. I always like going to garden centers. Often times you find things in those places you won’t find in the big box stores.

    Yes!  You’re right….I’m glad I stopped.  I had driven past it last year and promised myself I’d stop this year and almost forgot.  But it would not let me go.

    However, I did not buy anything.  As you have seen from pictures of my gardens, you know they are packed full.  Anything I add I have to think about it first.  And there were so many gorgeous lilies and hostas I couldn’t chose.  LOL  I know, I am already regretting not buying one of those flowers.  Oh well….it means another road trip.  LOL

    Gee, it’s nice that you all thought of me :)   And beautiful plants.  You know I would have come home with at least one of those Lilies.

    Noreen, I am so glad you stopped for a peek see, it is a gorgeous place to walk through. Since I lived in the Niagara area all my life except the past few years I have been there several times. My sister got 2 gorgeous water features from there a few years ago.

    Did you see the goats? :)

    Thanks for sharing your adventure with everyone. Now I want to go again…..

    I’m so glad everyone has enjoyed the pictures.  The whole time I was there I couldn’t help but wish you all were with me!  :)

    Melissa, I can’t believe I didn’t buy the place out!  LOL  The plants were huge and so-o healthy looking.   Especially since I had the camper with me so had lots of room to transport almost anything I’d buy.  LOL

    Donna, yes, I saw the cute goats…….and the donkeys.. and the chickens.  Loved them!

    As I continued west on #3 I passed this barn.

    And next to it…….

    I believe this might have been a children’s camp……

    When I took the pictures of the birdhouses on the barn, they appeared to have been painted by children, every one of them different.   I couldn’t resist.  :)

    What a neat place!  I’m glad you shared your pictures with us.  DH would never have left that place without at least one of those hostas.  He is always after me as to why ours don’t get as big as some that he sees around town.  No way would he not have to have one of those beauties.

    There’s different kinds of Hosta, Karen.  Some get big & some don’t.    Wonder why men seem to like the Hosta so much?

    Think men like the Hosta’s because they stay about the same all season. JMO.

    Interesting plants, trips and pix.
