Painting sessions in the garden

Bright and early one morning in July we were visited by Suzanne Shaffer and her watercolor class. They took advantage of the cooler temperatures and some of the shade the garden gets in the morning; and painted all kinds of sights from tiny details to larger scopes of the garden. We welcome visitors to come enjoy the garden; to stroll, sit and contemplate, to paint, take photos and find inspiration. We are open Mon.-Sat. 9am-6pm (in Spring through Autumn) 9:30-5:30 in Winter. If you would like to bring a group for a session, we ask you to call ahead and schedule; we can also accommodate after hour visits for some activities (like tea parties!)

Garden Party

We had our first Tea Party in the Garden!
Everyone wore their party hats, and even tried out Glory-B paper hats!

Anita, from Anita Cup of Tea, decorated the tables and
served a very delicious peach iced tea.

We nibbled on cucumber sandwiches, cherries, strawberries, pillow cookies and more.

We enjoyed Sunday afternoon with cheerful company and
sent our guests home with a little bouquet from the garden.

Scenes Around the Shop

Summer is here! On these hot days, let's take a little time to slow down from Spring planting and just enjoy the outdoors. Here we share some shots taken around the Thyme in the Garden.
