In the spirit of this post at Earth and Living, I am showing you the very best from my outing with my mom and sis last week. We visited Gardner Village, a sweet little collection of shops in the southern part of the valley.
Shown: bleeding hearts by the cooking store:
Not shown: The huge, scummy koi in the pond there. I’m sure the fish are gorgeous, but haven’t yet shed their winter algae.
Shown: Forget me knows in the shade of the knick knack shop:
Not shown: Our flavorless lunch at the little bakery.
Shown: The dots and stripes M bought and shared with me. The florals mom bought to make a bag for her friend:
Not shown: The mess of construction cones on the road getting in and out of the Village.
Shown: The most glorious flowering tree I’ve ever seen. I don’t even know what it is, but the buds looked like pink marbles and the blooms like petticoats. This first photo is just begging to be made into quilting fabric!
