Thanks for the garden tour! Love the birdhouses and rustic touches.

Dirty Fingernails

I too love the coleus... Aunt Daisy's looks like I would love to visit there.


The two stores are only about a 5-minute drive apart, but I just learned about Aunt Daisy's last year. So that's a new addition to this outing. There are also two nice nurseries and a great home decor shop along the route. (I don't do all the stops every time I go.) This was my first summertime visit to Aunt Daisy's and the garden was a delightful addition to the experience!
