Nursery Time!

Fall is by far my favorite season of the year.  Autumn in Texas is not quite as picturesque as the East Coast, but we can make up for it with mums and pumpkins.   
 
You can certainly tell the season by walking into our Starbucks.  It smells better this time of year than any other time. 
 
 
 
You can smell the Salted Carmel Mocha and Pumpkin Spice Lattes when you open the door. Nothing tastes better on a crisp morning!
 

 
I was born and raised in Connecticut.  As you can well imagine, if you haven't been there, October is positively breathtaking. My favorite nursery in the whole world is tucked away in Fairfield, Connecticut.  Not only do they carry the most beautiful flowers and plants, trees, and shrubs, the actual structure of the nursery looks like it should be in the movies.

 
The architecture is the epitome of Connecticut charm. 
 
  
 
The blue stone walkway is so quaint!
 
 
 
 
 
The Mister says it's too far to drive for our pumpkins and mums.
 
 
But I may go anyway!!! 
 
 
Love the green and white striped awnings! 
 
 
 
 The property is spectacular...
 
 
The Nursery also carries beautiful pottery and garden accessories.
 
 
 
The owner of this gorgeous nursery is a great guy named Billy.  He specializes in landscape design and installation.  If you are lucky enough to live within driving distance, stop by and take in this beautiful Garden of Eden!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.
