Rainbow Toadstools

After the wedding festivities, all I wanted to do was get in my car and take a drive in the country.  Well, I did just that, and I noticed a delightful nursery in the town of Loomis.   I've seen it before many times from the road, but this time, I stepped inside.

To my surprise was an enchanting nursery filled with all kinds of trees, flowers, and wonder.  I didn't want to leave.

As I was walking through the nursery, mist started to fill the air.  It was so pretty.

Around the corner glass toadstools caught my eye.

More pictures of the mist.

These purple petunias draped the awning that lead to another area of the nursery.

I noticed they had a little restaurant next to it, and I'd like to come back soon for breakfast.

We see so many
beautiful things when we
leave the comfort
of our own towns and
explore another.

What a perfect place to have quiet time to think about all that had gone on. All the happiness you could relive while you walked! Perfect! Enjoy your week sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

Sheri, I enjoyed this post. It is always good to walk thru nurseries. Even better when it's not crowded. Love those toadstools. :):) I just about always see something I would love to take home...but have to restrain myself. Hope you are having some peaceful days. Blessings, love you, xoxo, Susie

breakfast in the restaurant a few times, i know

bless you sweetly this day.

I know that nursery. We have been there numerous times. Even bought pots and fountains. The cafe is wonderful, where you enjoy a lovely meal and then stroll thru the gardens. Have a great week. xo

Oh Sheri, what a beautiful, wonderful place to visit. I would have stayed there all day exploring.

I have a couple of the toadstools and a couple have been broken and they really cheer up a pot full of flowers.

Thanks for taking us on this lovely tour.

Have a great week,



Such a pretty place. I can tell you those glass toadstools would have caught my eye too. And a handful of them would have come home.

Oh so enchanting, I do love traveling and finding wonders of other places. My husband is in landscape/construction and brings home flowers and trees to nurse back and enjoy in our own yard. Nurseries are such great design inspiration.

What a perfect place to visit.
I do like the verse in your first photo, and the coloured toadstools - such fun to see.

I think this visit was just what you needed after the wedding excitement.

May you have a very pleasant week

All the best Jan

I enjoyed your visit to the beautiful nursery, Sheri. It's been a lot going on in your world and this looks like the perfect place to recenter yourself. I love seeing the beautiful flowers that are growing so happily. I do hope you return for breakfast soon. ♥

Looks dreamy, Sheri. And you deserved to dream a bit after all the wedding planning, etc. Oh, those glass toadstools were fabulous! Susan

Dear Sheri,

Such a lovely garden Center and you must have had fun visiting here with all the beautiful plants and loved the toadstools.
Happy week and lovely to get away after all the wedding excitement.

Exploration is vital for so many reasons, first being of course, to BE DAZZLED! Don't you just love to walk into a nursery? It's like walking in WONDERLAND and you don't want to leave! Then when you come home, you see more in your own backyard. Oh dearest Sheri, HUGS TO YOU!

Patricia said...

Oh this is a pretty place Sheri. I love garden centres too, and they are best with a Cafe, so we can linger. The mist makes it so special. Happy days.

What fun to take a drive and find such a wonderful place to visit. Hope you are enjoying the calm after the (storm) wedding haha.

hi Sheri I have been working around the clock creating, writing, staging and photographing my 3 fairytale books that I have been an infrequent visitor in Blogland. I am so glad I stopped in to see these enchanting and magical photographs you took.

Karen said...

I would want to go back to visit every day!! Lovely place. Don't you love the toadstools!!

Mercy F said...

The cart with the flowers is beautiful and that mist is simply magical. I understand why you didn't want to leave. Very nice post Sheri!

I would love to visit. :-)
Beautiful photos as always.

Stephanie said...

Oh Sheri, what an incredibly charming and whimsical place! How I would love to walk around such beauty :)

Wishing you a joyous week. Love to you!

I love nurseries, we've got two near our city. We usually go once or twice a year, charming place that one.

I can see why this would be a perfect place to visit after all the craziness of planning and having a wedding in the family! Funny about those glass toadstools -- I just saw (and photographed -- eventually you'll see it!) a similar arrangement during my Martha's Vineyard trip! I wish I had bought one but I was a little worried about getting it home all in one piece!
