A visit to Terrain

I've been wanting to visit Terrain the store in Glenn Mills, PA since I've come across it on-line a few years back. Their online gardening and floral merchandise is impeccable, I mean right up my gardening/ flower alley. Not to mention that it is from the same company as Anthropologie so I had high expectations as I headed there with my friend Julie as we were in Philly for the day.  Let me tell you, my expectations were met, and then some!

A wall of mounted staghorn ferns as soon as we walked in!? I was hooked right away.

They had all sorts of small plants to choose from, along with an array of vessels and vases to create your own terrarium:
 I have the same chairs but in white! Seeing them in here made me relax a little bit from the chance I took buying them last summer, few!! Now I just need an old farmhouse table like that one ;)

Plants were everywhere, all different kinds of houseplants inside to choose from. Not to mention the outdoor garden center full of annuals and perennials. Everywhere I turned their artistic displays were inspiring.
They have a garden cafe that is nestled into an old greenhouse that boasts of using seasonal local hand selected meats, produce and dairy products. We did not have time to stop and enjoy it, but all the more reason for me to go back.

There was a small wedding taking place as we were there. What a lovely location that would be! I was like a little kid in a candy shop at Terrain, I  knew it would be worth the little treck out to it and I was right. It is now officially my favorite store I've ever been. No joke! I highly recommend a visit and I can't wait to go back during a different season to see their displays and ingenuity.

summer 2013 container plantings part I

A few container plantings from this years summer season! We really got into the succulents this year. Mostly because our grower has been dabbling in growing them. Lets just say we wiped out his inventory of them by the time the summer planting season was over. 

I think these were my favorite this year, honeysuckle trellises as the focal with oranges, purple, dusty miller gray and lime green at the bottom:

bougainvillea topiaries were definitely bright focal points for this modern style house:
