I have a confession. I played hooky today. I was supposed to spend the afternoon in the basement, choosing which photos to use for an upcoming exhibit at my local library. Instead, I went to one of my favorite places to shop in Rhode Island - The Good Earth.
I hope you'll understand this weakness of mine when you see the photographs! (I tried to wait until tomorrow to share these but I couldn't help myself.)
The Good Earth is a beautiful organic gardening center in western Cranston, Rhode Island. The owners, Joyce and John Holscher, are kind and welcoming - the sort of people who get to know you right away and make you feel at home. They're also very good at what they do - growing beautiful plants, dosing out garden tips, and collecting lovely things for their nursery shop.
Let's start by browsing the plants, shall we? (Click the images to see larger versions.)
Their lovely shop is chock full of pretty things. Let's take a peek inside...
Can you see why this was more tempting than slaving away in my basement? Such a lovely place - I've already let them know that my snap-happy self will be back later in the season. I hope you've enjoyed this little tour!
