In Praise of Greenhouses

My favorite place to visit from now until late fall is  Black Creek Greenhouse. It is owned and operated operated by a Mennonite family and was started in 1980. It has a wonderful selection of all types of plants, plus you can also pick up some locally grown produce and farm fresh eggs.

Customers use a variety of different types of transportation to get to the greenhouse. Including horse/buggy and bicycle.

I wander the aisles trying to figure out where I could plant more flowers… What will fit where, do I already have that plant and I might as well get just a few more plants… supporting local businesses, helping the economy and all that….

Perhaps a yellow rose

Or maybe pink

Or a combination of yellow and pink

Or maybe just one of everything.
