Yesterday on my way home I stopped at a nursery to buy some herb plants for the garden. I chose chive, peppermint, parsley and basil. And as you can surely understand from the photos I could not resist the lovely colorful pansies (Stiefmuetterchen) with their sweet faces.
On the road to our little town we have on a stretch of about one kilometer, wait I have to count, two, three, yes five big Arab nurseries. And they have PLENTY of plants, and a lot more of wonderful stuff! Flowers, herbs, trees, shrubs, cacti, house plants, seeds and bulbs! They sell containers for planting, made from ceramic, wood, plastic, even concrete, huge ones and small ones. They have soil, stones, pebbles, fertilizers, fencing, ready to plant grass patches, garden gnomes, watering cans. Whatever you need and want for your garden, your home and your balcony, you can find it there! And you get a smile and a Turkish coffee too! We love to buy from them! Every tree and plant in our garden was brought from those nurseries.
I always wanted to take photos there - this time I finally did it - and I got some funny looks! Oh, never mind! :-)
Photos taken with my humble little camera - not the quality of my husbands pictures of course! :-)

And now I am going to work on that bag! I hear you all! :-)

Liebe Yael,

herrlich Deine Fotos vom Pflanzenmarkt. Da kommt doch gleich Vorfreude auf.
Wir hier müssen aber noch ein Weilchen warten, bis es soweit ist.

Liebe Grüße

FAVORITE places on earth, nurseries! i love seeing your photos and taking a walk, perusing all this beauty. and i just love those polka dot watering cans. as far away as we live across the earth yael, some of the pottery is the same that we have in america. i guess stuff travels far and wide now. THANK YOU for the tour! xo

Absolutely GLORIOUS! I was once asked to take photographs for a farm stand and although I'm not the world's most talented photographer, I did manage to get some beautiful pictures. There is something about the blend of textures and colors in such a place that lends itself so easily to the camera. A feast for the eyes!
