Corn Hill Nursery





Hello Friends.
A little over a week ago Murray and I took a drive to Corn Hill Nursery in Corn Hill, Kings Co.  I have shared 2 other posts about our trip that day and this is the final post.  I have also blogged about this beautiful garden and nursery before.  The roses were in bloom that day along with lilies, peonies, and many other gorgeous plants and shrubs.  We had a lovely meal on the deck at the cafe before we walked around.  Enjoy the pictures.

This is the gateway from the parking lot to the garden centre.

There is a large pergola area with grapevines growing up the posts and over the top which give beautiful shade on a hot day.  

The stone slab table was covered with roses, samples of all the varieties they grow and sell there.  It was beautiful to see!



These stone vases are made in Nova Scotia.  I bought a small one a couple years ago.  They are quite unique.



This is such a special place to visit and to shop as well.  We bought a rose shrub - my first in over 30 years - and I didn't have any until now.   It is a David Thompson.

It's been blooming all week and has several bud clusters.  We planted it in the back yard so I hope it survives the winter wind and snow, and the deer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The weather has been fabulous for the past 11 days.  It's been sunny, hot, hazy and humid most of the days and we only had one rain day last Wednesday which was enough to water things.
I picked strawberries this morning and froze them.  We took a day trip on Sunday and I have some photos to share of that soon.


Thank you so much for all your visits and comments on my last 2 posts of our back roading trip and the covered bridges.  I appreciate them very much.  

I wish you all a beautiful week.  Keep cool!

Blessings,
Pamela

  7. I enjoyed tagging along with you to this lovely place. The table covered with roses is so pretty. I imagine it smelled good too. I can picture a rose or two looking very pretty in the rock vase. So glad you now have your very own rosebush to enjoy.

And what a gorgeous day you had....and those strawberries look delicious!! Thanks so much for sharing your amazing photos....I so enjoy your posts.

  12. Those rock vases are terrific! I just love the look of them. Do you use yours? I may have seen it often and just not paid attention. The roses are displayed so uniquely and are beautiful. Hope that your little rosebush gives you great joy and is not tempting to deer or critters in any way. You'll have fun learning how to care for it. I am five years into my rose bush learning curve and I am still learning. I did have a gorgeous, huge, vigorous yellow rosebush to care for when we lived in Arizona. Fortunately, my neighbor was a prize-winning rosebush grower and so when I really messed it up, he would prune it for me properly. In fact, he'd beg me if he could. He couldn't take it. LOL!

  13. What a gorgeous place to visit, and that stone slab with all of the blossoms is a stunning idea! I used to put out flowers from the garden center by the front door, with a small sign that read, what's blooming now...you would be surprised just how many sales it created...lol.

    And the stone vases are so unique, I bet they are lovely to shoot. So how hot is it there? I think we heard you are getting a few more storms? Was that your area? No rain here, although they keep telling us that we have had a downpour....silly weatherman.

  15. Even the name of this place sounds neat. I've so enjoyed the photos. Makes me anxious to get back out on the back roads here. The roses are gorgeous. I love those stone vases. Probably cost too much to mail one though! heehee! I love places with unique items and beautiful surroundings. Sweet hugs, Diane

  17. So many wonderful summery things in this post. I'll echo Vee in saying the stone vases are really unique and beautiful. The way the nursery displays the roses on the stone table is striking and different. What a great way to really see what one might be getting. I hope your rose bush does well. I have a couple that are so so and I'm thinking of starting a dedicated rose bed for them.
