I don't know about you but I always loved the small
independent garden centers.  They seem to put a lot
of passion into their businesses and certainly more
creativity. I love INSPIRATION. 

I am sharing a great place for that today! This
is the nursery known as Vintage Hill Farm
located in the small community of
Franklin, Missouri.  This is just about
32 miles from our home - just west
and north of Columbia.

Several months back we went there
as I wanted to order a few more Campania
pieces for my garden to go near the Koi Pond.

They did a special order for me which I picked up yesterday
afternoon.  I will be showing my pieces for my
Friday "Tea In The Garden" blog party.

I am so sorry to say that I intended to show you
lots of pictures but a much needed rainstorm came
up just after I took these 2 pictures and my photo shoot came
to an abrupt stop!  You can see that it is a creative nursery.


  1. I love statuary in a garden and it looks like the Farm had plenty. Pity it had to rain while you were there. Your first picture of the child standing behind the flowers is sweet. Have a lovely day, Bernideen.


  2. Beautiful post!

  4. Hi Bernideen! I love garden centers like that too...could spend hours browsing...even though we don't garden anymore. One near where we used to live had the best displays at was a yearly outing! Have a wonderful week!

  5. I was all set for a tour of the nursery, but was glad to hear that you got some much needed rain. Thanks for having us for another lovely party this week Bernideen! Have a blessed week...hugs...

  23. Hi Bernideen, I do love walking through independent nurseries. This one looks lovely. Looking forward to seeing your custom-ordered pieces soon. Jill

  24. I love nurseries too! We are really lucky to still have a lot of independent ones in our area. It is always a treat to go visiting. Lovely post. Have a great week.

  25. I love the small independent garden centers too. We have several near us and they are so unique and interesting.

    Thanks for hosting this fun party ... looking forward to maybe taking a few minutes to browse some of the links.

  26. Dear Bernideen,
    I love little garden centers, too. So nice to have a peak on the area. It looks very promising. Hopefully you could have a look at the plants and decoorations despite the rain. I am sure you found something very special. I am curious what you will show us on Friday. Thank you for sharing this wonderful pictures and for hosting the sweet event.
    Best greetings, Johanna
