Gardening Day Part Two

Okay we had our usual fun at the nursery. We visit all the little nooks and crannies. Wanted to share.
They do custom ponds so they have lots of Koi fish.

 One of my favorite areas has the ferns and tropicals. It is all mossy in there and cool.

These are the Love Birds. None would come close for a picture.

This is a Chinese Magnolia. The pink color I am used to seeing.

But look at this one. It was called a White Chinese Magnolia.

Here is the duck. He follows us around whenever we go. Quinn and him have a love/hate relationship. He gets close to her and she gets scared and in turn she scares him and then he chews us out. He was eating my Calendulas right off the cart.

See him giving us the biz!

Wanted to show you these as they are new this year. It is a black Scabiosa. I loved the deep color.

Hope you enjoyed. You never catch me at the mall but you will at the nursery. My shopping addiction. They were having a sale.

Looks like a great nursery! Ducks can be mean to little kids. He looks like he has a great personality. I do know Cambria very well. I was born and raised in San Luis Obispo and my husbands parents lived in Cambria for about 35 years. Mimi

This looks like a wonderful nursery. I'd love to start planting again too. It's still a little early for us though, we might get more snow.
Sorry I didn't get back to you this week with your question about the camera. I use a little Sony Cyber-shot. I'd like to get a better camera too. Jo, over at Secret Garden Cottage told me about Picnik ( photo editing, and I've been using that. I love it. I use the free version. Feel free to email me if you have any questions :-)
Yes, we're in the high desert too, in Victorville, not far from Pinion Hills :-)

What great pictures! We call the Chinese Magnolia trees "tulip trees" in the South. They are the harbingers of spring around here! I have never seen a black scabiosa before. I think the color is cool, too! I hope you bought some lovely plants for your garden!

That looks like such a great nursery. So many sights to see, in addition to all of the plants. What beautiful Koi. How wonderful to live in a climate where you can garden year round. I really enjoyed my tour of the nursery. Thank you for linking it to Favorite Things. laurie
